I’ve been a fan of Jonathon King since I read the first Max Freeman novel. If I’d read this book first, I never would have tried them.
It’s not that this is a bad story. It’s just not as good as those are.
It starts with a bang – literally and figuratively – which is a good thing but there are no more ‘bangs’ until midway through and at the end. Most of the ‘action’ here happened in the past and we learn about it through the main character’s memory and search through old newspaper stories. There is a resolution to the story but it seemed incomplete, as if King had left something out, as if what was in his mind didn’t make it onto the page.
I also never felt as close to Nick Mullins as I did to Max Freeman. In those books, I felt as if I was along for the ride. In Eye Of Vengeance, I felt like I was watching a TV program.
I wish King had used the time and effort he put into this book into writing another Max Freeman story. They’re better in every way.
