It is a book about a disappearance, healing people, revenge and historical background for hidden pirate treasures. All stories woven into a true page turner. What starts off as a modern mystery story, ends up being the story of a rare gift passed down through generations.
As with all John Locke books, the storyline is complex and has multiple plots. This means that the book is describing fast paced action and I caught myself wanting to turn pages quicker and quicker to find the solutions to the mysteries that Locke lays out in this book.
To describe this book as unusual is an understatement, it is by far the wildest mystery novel I have encountered in the last few years. John Locke really outdoes himself in this plot and the surprises woven into the storyline.
This is must read for every John Locke fan, but it is also highly recommended to any fan of a really good mystery story.
Then I read Now and Then .. wow was this book bad. We go from action hero, good/bad guy with a heart, to ... handyman/cook in a Restaurant. Half of the book is a pirate story that completely unrelated to Creed!!!! This book SHOULD BE SKIPPED. Do yourself a favor!
This book was all over the place and I couldn't wait to get through it so I could move on to Wish List .. but I just read the reviews on that and it appears it has a lot of the same problems this did.
Just wanted to warn other readers out there .. I went and bought the rest of the books in the series after reading the first two ... buy them one at a time, skip Now and Then, and I'll post on Wish List after I'm done with it.
Great locations and set pieces as well as enough characters to hold you over for some time. I really don't like empathizing with the criminal element, but it's unavoidable here.
I just finished up 'wish list', also by John Locke, and jumped right into this on a plane ride for business, and the stewardess had to ask me what was wrong. I was throbbing with adrenaline and actually got off the plane and sat in the boarding area to finish a section. Great fun.
Now and Then.
I figure that the ending of Now and Then will start the next Donovan Creed novel. So be it!

The writing is sharp and amusing, like the private eye movies of the 1950s. Fun to read on an airline flight, when you want something light and fast.Published 11 months ago by David Emil Henderson
