I have read all of Robert Ellis books, enjoyed them all immensely, and was looking forward to this one coming out.
I am disappointed.
My overall impression is that there was too much going on, too many sub plots, as if the author had too many ideas in his head and couldn’t decide which route to take, which resulted in the direction of the novel becoming aimless and confusing.
There was very little detecting or police procedure and characters were either undeveloped or unrealistic.
In this story he has endowed Matt Jones with almost super human powers, who cheats death like a super hero on little or no sleep. It was a very physical book and it made me tired reading it.
I hope this is just a blip and the next one gets the author back on track as I’m looking forward very much to the next Lena Gamble story. Fingers crossed.
