    Jack's Back.

    After reading Midnight Rambler, I forgot the authors name and thought I would never find another Jack Carpenter novel. Well, when I started this book and realized I was reading about Jack and Buster, I could hardly put it down. He's an ex-cop who's not only fighting police corruption but also has such empathy for the lost children and victims of crime. He reminds me of Columbo with a dog. Buster shares top billing in this novel. His wife and daughter love him, but can't seem to live with him which adds to his appeal. I'll remember James Swain's name now and anxiously await his next book about Carpenter and Buster.

    MYSTERY/THRILLER LOVER

    I PICKED THIS BOOK OFF THE LIBRARY SHELF. I HAD NEVER HEARD OF THE AUTHOR BEFORE, BUT THE FLYLEAF MADE THE BOOK SOUND PROMISING. EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE YOU RUN ACROSS A DIAMOND IN THE RUFF, AND BOY DID I HIT THE MOTHER LODE WITH THIS AUTHOR AND BOOK. I WILL NOT SPOIL THE BOOK FOR YOU BY GIVING AWAY TOO MUCH OF THE PLOT....BUT I WILL GIVE YOU ENOUGH TO CONVINCE YOU TO READ THIS STORY. I WOULD SUGGEST YOU READ THE FIRST JACK CARPENTER BOOK (MIDNIGHT RAMBLER). THE NIGHT STALKER IS THE SECOND. JACK IS AN EXPERT AT FINDING MISSING PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY SMALL CHILDREN. HE IS WITTY AND DETERMINED. HE IS ACCOMPANIED ALMOST EVERYWHERE BY HIS DOG. I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE THINKING, PROBABLY THE FIRST THOUGHT I HAD. OH NO, NOT ANOTHER BOOK ABOUT AN INVESTIGATOR WITH A CAT OR A DOG. YOU WON'T SAY THAT AFTER YOU MEET HIS DOG. HE IS SO INTERESTING THAT HE MAY BE THE SECOND BEST CHARACTER IN THE BOOK. THE BASIC PLOT INVOLVES A SERIAL KILLER WHO IS CONDEMNED TO DIE IN FIVE DAYS AND WHOSE 3 YEAR OLD GRANDSON HAS BEEN KIDNAPPED. THE POLICE THINK THEY KNOW WHO STOLE THE CHILD. JACK DOES NOT AGREE WITH THEM. HE TAKES THE CASE AND THE CHASE IS ON. THE BOOK IS GREAT FROM BEGINNING TO END. THE AUTHOR, JAMES SWAIN, HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO WRITE A GREAT NOVEL, GREAT CHARACTERS AND PLOT, AND ABOVE ALL HE IS A GREAT STORY TELLER. I WOULD COMPARE HIS STORY TELLING SKILLS TO LISA GARDNER. I BELIEVE THAT SHE AND MR. SWAIN ARE THE TWO BEST STORY TELLERS IN THE THRILLER GENRE. I HOPE THE MR. SWAIN KEEPS WRITING BOOKS ABOUT JACK CARPENTER. HE IS THE MOST INTERESTING CHARACTER I HAVE COME ACROSS IN MANY YEARS. THANK YOU MR. SWAIN FOR AN OUTSTANDING READ.
