As others have noted in their reviews, the character development in Death Never Sleeps is superb. Several of the characters portrayed here are considerably different, and thus, more believeable than the sterotypical portrayal in other detective type novels. It's an interesting, fast paced novel, that keeps you turning pages...
Highly recommend this book, as well as others by this author..
I absolutely recommend this book, I loved it, you should also read The Concrete Kiss, same author, another great read.
The author has the right amount of events so the reader isn't overwhelmed and the story even though there are more mysteries than who put the person in the wood chipper. There are plots and sub-plots in this story.
I am not saying there is nothing but this crime solving subject in it either; it does have personal/career relationships that are developed. In other words, not only are the main characters developed as detectives, their working/social relationships are developed as well. Not everything is a good groundbreaking events either, disaster does strike which only adds to the believability of the characters, story and life as a whole.
The pace of the book was consistent from beginning to end. I liked that the author was able to bring these character's lives to life without slowing the pace down to a crawl. It kept me turning page after page and I do recommend this book.
*I received a free copy of this book for my honest review. This did not affect my review at all.
The base story is about the detectives finding the killer but if you don't pay attention, you will get lost in the other stories that intertwine in the main one. It took me about half the book before I got the connection between the two main characters.
I would recommend you read this when you are wide awake so you will be sure to follow all the twists and turns the author creates in his story. Stay on your toes or you will be rereading for find out what detail you missed.
So, I re-read it (because, of course, with almost 100 books in between, I’d forgotten the details), and I enjoyed it all over again. I rarely read a book twice anymore, so the fact that I read every single word a second time, rather than skimming through to refresh my memory, is a huge endorsement for this book.
I’m always looking for the trifecta of character, story and setting. This book hits all the marks. I live in Los Angeles, so I always enjoy stories set in LA. At times, the author seems to want to disguise the location, changing names of streets and some other locations, but for me, it wasn’t a distraction.
I realized how much I enjoy the character of Chris Hunter, and how Big Jim Donehan carefully schools the boy he sets out to mentor, to shape into a man who is not only a good person, but good for something. The reader sees how still waters run deep in the character of Chris, and how successful Big Jim has been in shaping his life.
For me, the story was mostly about character, and the characters. Each character is carefully constructed, serving as a foil for both Chris Hunter and the story.
The story could plod, yet it doesn’t. It flows steadily and thoughtfully from start to finish, mirroring Chris Hunter’s personality. It starts with the murder of a prostitute, and as the bodies start piling up, Chris finds himself having to sort through the data points, which he understands, and human nature, which he doesn’t, to solve the case. But this story isn’t just about solving a murder, it’s about how lives are shaped and about doing what’s right.
I definitely recommend this book. It’s well written, and there’s more here than just a murder and a police procedural on solving it.
