A Tense Thriller When I read the first chapter I did not think the book would be worth reading. However, you should never let first impressions put you off. The great strength of this book is its structure, it is extremely well planned with plenty of twists and turns and suspense built in. We are not introduced to all the characters in the beginning, infact I was over half way through and new characters were being brought in, but this is a thriller and not a whodunit, so I guess its alright to widen the intrigue with new people.This novel is plot driven rather than character driven, you read to find out what happens in the end, not how the characters get on. The protagonist, Mark, is a lawyer turned private detective. In this role he appears a little inept and out of his depth. His pursuit of Daniella appears more wishful thinking than purposeful. Do we need a strong character in a novel which is plot driven? Well Arthur Conan Doyle seemed to manage it with Sherlock Holmes. No one would doubt his eccentricity and character, yet this did not detract from the plot.I assume the Kappa File is the first novel by this author as I can not find anything else. It is a good and worthwhile read, as the plot is very well structured and many writers could learn a lot from reading it. Going forward I would personally like to see more character and atmosphere from this writer. This is definitely someone to watch in 2013.

I really enjoyed this book.  It was an entertaining legal thriller, with an unexpected ending.  The story line makes you stop and think about how easily the governmental processes we hold in esteem can be manipulated.  If you enjoy surprise endings, and books that make you stop and think, after you've read them, you will find this a great read!

A dirty judge, a rigged election, computer hacking, and several dead bodies could be part of any legal thriller. But The Kappa File has a twist you won't expect.  It's a smart, well-paced page turner that will make you think!
