    Deadline Highly Recommended - Check it out!

    This is an awesome read, a real page-turner. Refreshing to read a Canadian-based thriller. Would love to see a sequel with these characters!

    Why do my nook books cost more?

    For real! Im sorry to post this here, I havent read the book yet so I cheated in favor of the author by giving it 5 stars but does anyone else have this problem?! I will read the reviews and someone will post a review extremely recent saying "great deal for $1.99!", but it'll cost me 2.99 to buy it! Or worse, "good thing this book was free!" but it'll be for sale for 2.99 for me! I do write normal reviews as well...not just crazy vents...which is why i felt OK in asking this question here. I dont know where else i can ask because nook support people are NO help whatsoever with THIS question!

    A page turner

    The dialog is kind of cheesy and the storyline a little hard to believe but it gets you hooked and you can't help but want to know what happens next.

    DEADLINE An Exciting Page-turner

    This debut thriller novel by a Canadian author is a real page-turner. It is an exciting read over 24 hours in a daily newspaper setting and includes a serial killer, terrorists in Afghanistan and plenty of suspense.
    A serial killer-the Wolfman- prowls the streets of Toronto kidnapping young professional women, then targets crime reporter Katie Cannon who has been writing about his rampage. Trevor Trevanian, a foreign correspondent in Afghanistan, is abducted by al-Qaida and taken on a perilous journey to Pakistan. This thriller combines murder, action and romance. This nookbook is a real steal at $1.99. If you love thrillers, you should check it out.

    Serial killer headlines

    Deadline had an interesting premise with a serial killer on the loose and the newspaper reporters that are trying to stay on top of the story. There were two or three separate story lines going that had absolutely nothing to do with the killer story and tended to take away from the tension and suspense. Much of the backstory for secondary characters was unnecessary and also slowed the story.

    Entertaining

    This book is mildly entertaining, although the plot is very predictable. It makes for a godd "nothing-to-dp-weekend" filler.

    c

    could we drag anything else into this story? Wolfman serial killer in toronto, Osama Ben Laden wishing to speak to an honest newspaper man; a Canadian instead of those lying Americans...and the dialog is from really bad soap opera spoofs.

    Skip This One

    In less than 22 pages I had the feeling I was reading some wanna-be author fan fiction or the work of a middle school student who fancied himself a murder mystery writer. The author needs a thesaurus so he doesn't use the same words repeatedly. Mr. Anderson's poor use of adjectives is comical, not suspense building.
