A slow start, but in the end it's great.,
This review is from: Mister Slaughter (Hardcover)Robert McCammon is a great story teller. I've read most of his books and they are all good. Over the years he has moved from horror into mainstream suspense and is now writing historical. Actually, I think Mr. Slaughter is a thriller that just happens to be set in the 1700's.
This is McCammon's third Matthew Corbett thriller. It is a pretty good book. But it starts off very slow. The first 80 pages or so take forever to get through. I actually put the book down and read another book. But when I atarted in again the main plot kicked into gear, and it got interesting. By the end of the story I understood why McCammom wrote the first 80 pages. But they were still hard to wade through.
I ended up liking the book alot. But I think it would have been better if it was nearly 100 pages shorter.
If you are a Robert McCammon fan or enjoy historical fiction you'll like Mr. Slaughter a lot.
