The central player, Sam Case, was put through so much that he could not keep track of everything himself. Of course, through it all, Donovan Creed was masterminding the action so there could be a happy ending for all the players that he thought to be important.
Sam Case is in the business of hiding money. He hides money for several very rich very nasty people. He has come up with a way to keep the government form finding out about billions of dollars. Most of this money belongs to mobsters, terrorists, and other people you don't want to cross like Donavan Creed ( a terrorist assassin for the government and general killer for hire). Now someone has found out and wants to pressure Sam into giving them information so they can steal all that money.
Saving Rachel A Donovan Creed Novel by John Locke is the third in the Donovan Creed series and the fastest passed yet.
It's certainly pacy, it's a mystery story, and there are enough twists and turns in the plots to keep you hooked. I did like the way the writer used his language, and how he laid out the story. What I did Not like much is his characterization. It could have been better and if he had paid attention to his characters a bit more, I would have granted another star in the rating. Saving Rachel would certainly have been placed much higher in the lists if some more time had been devoted in the development of characters.
In all, a good pacy read for a relaxed day and the money spent is well-justified.
I also found the ending to be too abrupt, I felt like more could have been added to wrap the storyline up.
On the plus side, it was a short read and it only cost me .99.
Do not waste your time reading this! The entire premise is unbelievable as is the dialog and main character. I am glad to see real reviews coming on line as the earlier reviews must have been created by a marketing company. Save your time and money and find anything else.
The prose actually wasn't too bad except for excessively detailed descriptions. There's hope that the author may produce something worth reading some day if he can learn to outline a plot--but this novel isn't it. Who selects this stuff?
