1.0 out of 5 stars POS BS, January 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I received my radio and accessories a couple of days back. This disc and cable came today. I installed the disc on my laptop, downloaded everything...BUT...there are NO instructions on what to do with it all or how to get my radio programmed with this. There is supposed to be an instruction manual with this, but I did NOT get one and now I'm sitting here with a radio and no idea how to program it!
Guess this is what happens when I buy foreign made, eh?

How do I even begin with a book like this with so many great and talented authors lending their skills to making it the best book possible for fans to read? If you haven't read this book yet, why not? Get started NOW! You won't be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story and Plot, May 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Killing Plato is the first of Jake Needham's books I've read, but it won't be the last. He has great detail in his writing that helps to flesh out the characters and scenery, without being overkill the way some authors write. I felt like I was actually there in the various parts of Thailand where this book takes place, though I've never come close to that nation geographically.
Looking forward to the other books in this series and then I'll branch off to others by this same author.

2.0 out of 5 stars The illustrations are great and I'm sure the story is, May 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The illustrations are great and I'm sure the story is, too, but the text is too small and having the black letters outlined in white makes it even harder to read. With any picture book for kids on Kindle the words should always be separate from the pictures so they can be enlarged if necessary. I decided to get this book to read to my granddaughter, but my old eyes simply cannot read the text. Epic fail for me. Maybe if the author had gotten a professional formatter to handle getting this book ready?

4.0 out of 5 stars Police Procedues Well Defined, February 26, 2014
In a book based upon a crime being investigated by police it's good to read an author who seems to know proper police procedure. The story flows well enough, though at times bespeaks an atmosphere that suggests slightly less than a professional author when it comes to storytelling. Overall a good story in the crime fiction genre.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfinished Draft of Laundry Man, February 17, 2014
This review is from: Tea money: A novel (Paperback)
No doubt this is a well-written book, since it comes from the expert mind of Jake Needham, but it is a rough draft that has been published without the authorization of this author and should not be purchased. If you want to purchase the official and final version of the story you need to read "Laundry Man" at this link: http://www.amazon.com/LAUNDRY-Shepherd-International-Crime-Novels-ebook/dp/B006H9KYPY/

Here is what the author himself says about this unauthorized version: Jake Needham - "TEA MONEY is an unauthorized distribution from about 15 years ago of the first draft of the manuscript that eventually became LAUNDRY MAN. Since it's a first draft, it's not very good and the existence of the unauthorized version has become a constant embarrassment to me. I did my best to get Amazon to remove it from their search engine, but they say they can't do that as long as copies actually exist at the used booksellers they include in their catalogue. And, sadly, they do."

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Storyline, Fun Writing Style, October 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Subtraction (Kindle Edition)
Have you ever read a book by Andrew peters before? No? Too bad. Mr. Peters has a light-hearted style that makes his stories reminiscent of the old-line detective books from the 40s and 50s. This style makes his books easily read so the reader doesn't get bogged down by too much description or information that is always unnecessary in reading for entertainment purposes. And entertainment is certainly what this book is. The "hero" is not a PI, ex-cop or any of the old cliches, but simply someone who likes to help others in various matters generally reserved for private detectives.

Subtraction holds a glimmer of sexuality without actually being over-sexed or pornographic, just the same as it gives hints of violence without actually providing gratuitous violence too prevalent in so many other books today.

A satisfying read that is sure to please you and help you relax before turning in to bed at night. Download it and read it tonight. Then check out the various other offerings Mr. Peters has published.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasingly Seductive, June 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Joe Soap (Kindle Edition)
Just finished reading Joe Soap, by Andrew Peters and I have to say, it was quite interesting. It wasn't actually about anyone named Joe Soap, but you'll have to read the book to figure out why, or why not, as the case may be. Still, the actual plot and execution of this crime fiction thriller was quite interesting to follow and try to figure out. Some I did and some I didn't, but overall the storyline kept me reading until I finished. The author could use a good editor for proofing, but the story was well worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Imaginative, October 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you have read anything previous from Andrew Peters you know he isn't much for following the rules of writing. To Andrew, it would seem, rules are not only meant to be broken, but shot to hell, slit across the throat and stuffed into a deep hole to later be filled with cement. But Andrew Peters is nothing if not imaginative. This latest fiasco, er, I mean lark, ah, perhaps selection would be a good word? seems to follow this total lack of rules and is a very enjoyable piece of (Okay, I simply cannot use the term literature in this regard, but...) quirky amusement. Yes, that's it exactly. Mr. Peters has dug so far down into the well of his imagination in conjuring up the plot and story line for this offering that I believe he may have come out on the other side of the Earth. Read "The Venusian Vamp" at your peril, er, I mean leisure, sure, and marvel at the wondrous story-fracturing, er, telling Mr. Peters weaves for us once more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertainingly Humorous, May 23, 2012
Most erotica simply goes for the hardcore sexual action. While Stephen Leather has enough sex in this book to keep the attention of even the most jaded among readers, it's the humor he injected within his telling of this story that kept me reading to the very end. Leather has a wry wit in even the most provocative plot lines.
