Unfortunately, the author did not intend it as a comedy. WARNING: Anyone who cares about the English language should NOT read this book. You will retch. I'll give you some examples a bit later in this review.
Aside from the obvious butchery of our language, it is equally obvious this author didn't bother to get a competent editor to look at this work. Why do I say this? The characters aren't credible, the plot just doesn't work, the author tries so hard to be clever and "creative" with words that he winds up sounding like a seventh grader attempting to emulate one of the greats, and give me a break... the bad guy gets away at the end? There is no satisfactory conclusion to the book.
Perhaps the author is attempting to lure the gullible into purchasing future books, which I see he has written. I can only hope that he's learned from his mistakes.
Okay, here are some of the examples I promised, some of the absolutely wretched writing inflicted on us readers. Note: what follows is a mere sampling of the comedic blunders with which this book is riddled. If you see a misspelling, please assume (sic) immediately following.
"There was a mutual, cosmic tear that her and her intended soul mate needed to mend."
"'This is going to be one hell of a vacation,' he clenched. 'At least for me.'"
[character name]... "let out a soughed breath and left this world, windpipe crushed like a twig in a vice."
"The words [on the paper] reached out and grabbed him by the front of his uniform."
"She purged a full belly laugh."
"...after he had wrangled into the black tux..."
"Mixed emotions strolled into his mind like they owned the place.Read more ›
While docked in San Juan, a grizzly murder is committed in a San Juan hotel, which brings in Detective Christina Perez of the San Juan Police Department and FBI Special Agents Corner & Tucker. Soon, another murder occurs on board the Ocean Duchess and the MO is strikingly similar to a case the Lansing Detectives had worked and solved, with the killer in prison. Doesn't take long for the Lansing cops to be fully engaged with Chief of Security Richardson, a retired NYPD Detective with an alcohol problem, and Captain Vicente Serafini, the Ship's Captain. As you read this carefully plotted novel you are gripped in suspense as you scroll down your Kindle. The scenes are masterfully and vividly laid out, you feel the Caribbean brerezes, smell the coconuts, the rich Pina Coladas and Cuba Libres. You get to know the characters indepth, and you like them. Then Robert Peppercorn appears as he is released from prison. You learn first-hand from him that he is now Eli Jenkins. He next appears in San Juan, and you learn he is a passenger on the Ocean Duchess . . . with a score to settle with the Lansing cops.Read more ›
However this book has the rare honor of being so annoyingly written I only made it half way through. The grammar is terrible; perhaps English is the second language for the author? For example, "It appeared someone had mistaken her suitcase with a trampoline." bring the reader to a grating halt.
Also, if you removed the word "like" from this book it would be half as long. Someone must have told Rick that the way to liven up his prose is through similes, and almost every sentence has one. For example, "His heart rate quickened as his anticipation strutted like a wild Arabian stallion." Really?
This is the first review I have ever written. I would recommend taking your $3 and buying a nice latte instead of this book. I appreciate and admire start-up authors, but please at least have a friend run through it for a quick edit to make it readable.
