Excellent plot, intriguing characters, a very fast read because you won't be able to put it down. It was the best book I've ever read. It was also the most poorly edited. If it weren¿t for the captivating story, the distraction of so many grammatical errors would¿ve prevented me from finishing.

Left for Dead! As usual the plot was sensational - very hard to put down book! One of the best, if not the best, suspensful writers on the market. Can hardly put one of his books down - highly recommended. The only thing I noticed, which I didn't in other books that I read of his, that this book was apparently just spell checked and not proof read. Many gramatical errors which you don't see often. This was the worst book I have ever read as far as beiing proof reada prior to publication. Thank goodness his story keeps you going - needs to invest in a better proof reader though!

As a fellow author, I recognize some of the finer points of writing and this book has them. It flows, the author has a good eye for the details of personality, and the suspense is masterful. The idea that the author hit upon to lure the victims to their fate is highly clever and yet chilling. A very satisfying read.

I was never a reader but recently started picking up some books to pass the time. This was my second book I read in years, it use to take me weeks to read a book because I could not stay interested. This book I could not even put it down and was finished with it in 3 days. WOW!

I highly recommend Left for Dead for those readers who like a book full of suspense and aplot that leaves the reader guessing about the outcome.

This was a good book. I stayed up until 4am to finish it. I have read all of his books and while this one wasnt my favorite, it held me my attention and moved along quickly. This author repeats many things in each of his books. Seattle, Eva Marie Saint, certain references, gay characters, and so on. Which isnt really a bad thing but it would be nice if he switched it up some. Anyways my one complaint with this book is the one character saying "Ye Gods...". It drove me crazy reading that over and over. Who even says that anyways? The book was a little strange. The whole idea and the island and guardians. It was still suspenseful though and better than some of his other books. I would recommend it. Terrified and Disturbed are 2 of his best books.
