These books are absolutely tremendous. Farago is such a careful researcher that he gets his complex plots perfectly structured so that you can follow the several separate plot lines that he so skillfully brings together at the end of each book. His characterisation is superb, and his stories are so interesting and involving that it's really difficult to put them down. I just love them, and can't wait for each new one to come out. Buying them in a box set is a wonderful bargain; you shouldn't pass it up. And although my last comment may not be important to everyone, it really is to me: there are no proofreading or grammatical errors! Buy this box set for yourself and for your best friends. You couldn't give a better gift.
Jack Rogan is an intriguing character and one of the best ways to get to know and understand what makes him tick is to read all the books in Gabriel Farago's Jack Rogan Mysteries Series. Each book is standalone, and reveals a little more about the 'rogue' writer and self-styled mystery solver. If you’ve read any of Gabriel Farago’s novels or novellas, you know you’re in for a ride. And it’s not an easy journey – Farago’s novels require you to stay switched on. The cutting-edge science in his latest two books might seem far-fetched, but in fact it’s based on actual breakthroughs in genomics being worked on right now in Sydney, Australia. In addition to Jack Rogan, there are other characters who always seem to become drawn into Rogan’s latest adventure, such as Tristan, who can ‘hear the whisper of angels and glimpse eternity’. There are many other intriguing characters in this series; some are good, others are just plain evil. Fans of Farago’s imaginative, globetrotting plots will enjoy whiling away the hours with this box set - a great Christmas present for an avid, 'thinking' thriller-fiction reader!
Gabriel Farago has written a thrilling series of books. It is always helpful when you enjoy a great book to then be able to buy other books by the same author. Amazon's ebook system makes this very easy to do. No more trawling through book stores with crumpled pieces of paper or lists of authors on your phone in a desperate search to find more books by the author. No more excuses from Librarians that the books by your favourite author are all out on loan. Simply search for Gabriel Farago's name and get the whole set of spine-tingling Jack Rogan mysteries as a box set. I have not received a fee for writing this review as it is written from the point of view of a reader who has been fascinated by each one of Gabriel's books.
Unlike other boxsets where the pattern gets monotonous & predictable, this set had me riveted from book one to the end of book 4. I loved how the story continued on, where other stories may have ended once it had reached the perceived crux of the story, these continue on, creating a weft & weave far beyond a simple start, middle, conclusion. Thank you Gabriel
