Amazon.com で最も参考になったカスタマーレビュー (beta)
Hero cop Joe Dartelli has everything a fiction hero needs - weirdly abusive childhood, the choice of beautiful and brilliant co-worker or beautiful and brilliant ex, ... and an annoying range of physical reactions. In just a couple of pages early on, he:
feels a worming sense of worry twist his gut, feels the constant din of his internal voice nagging, feels his words catch in his throat, his mind reels, the worry burns inside him again, he felt the need to spill his guts, his voice becomes too tight to answer... I kept hoping for someone to put him out of his misery.
The circumstances of the original cover-up aren't that clear, the computer hacking at the end is ludicrously fanciful, and seemingly every location in the book is
described as too dangerous for whites to go after dark, far more so than any book set in NY or LA. In between all this murk, there are also flashes of Mr Pearson's talent as a snappy crime writer. Still, you might want to skip this one, and read Beyond Recognition instead.
and detailed story in a poorly written
book. The plot keeps unwinding in surprising
directions, while the forensic and high-tech
details are interesting and entertaining.
It's a good read, and it would probably make
a good movie.
But the attempt to describe the tortured
soul of the protagonist never really works.
His relationships with women and his former
mentor are not credible. His angst winds up
feeling like heartburn. If you read novels
for characters, skip this one. If you want
an exciting plot, buy it now.
Two months later, when I was consumed by boredom, almost to the brink of insanity. I picked the book up.
The first part is, eh... kind of boring. The the investigation and the methods involved are real enough. His relationships are questionable and tad obscure; with his mentor, with his 'girlfriend'.
The main character isn't very dyanmic, but he has a very underplayed sentimentalism that will have 'the readers' sympathize with him.
The minor characters aren't very dynamic either, with the exception of his mentor walter Zeller, who might just be insane.
The book is comprised of mainly rising action, which is interesting, because after you get past all of the methodical investigating, relationships down played tension. It's just action, suprises, blood and glancing bullets all the way. The climax of this book is one of the best ever written and for just the climax alone I will rate the abook a five.
I highly recommend this Book.
Don't waste you time on this one.
