Now to book 12. In a word “HURRAY”. I gave the read 5 stars, i.e., I “love it.”
You have to understand that I do not like ascribing such a designation to an inanimate object. I love my wife, but I don’t “love” a book and so I always feel awkward giving 5 stars to a review with that as the explanation for my grade. I have said in the past that I would much prefer some other title be accorded a 5 star rating. I think “excellent” or “outstanding” would better serve to complement the quality of the read.
Jeff Carson is an excellent writer. He knows that. I know that and have told him so. It’s the mechanics of his writing that most appeals to me. I don’t re tell story lines in my reviews, so what’s important to me is the construction of the story: plot, character development, rising action, falling action, anti-climax (where applicable), and resolution. Those characteristics in a book are of major importance to me.
Plot dictates the flow of the story in a linear fashion from page one to page last. I measure good plot development by putting a book down for a time to see if I can recall what was going on when I return without having to re read pages for recollection. When I can, that’s tight plot. No gaps. No filler wondering if the author ran out of ideas of where the story was to go next.
The plot flowed so well in this read, it was so linear, it so held me that I wouldn’t even put the book down to test my theory. That’s to say, outstanding plot in my view.
Character development was equally well developed for all the protagonists from David Wolf on through all the other characters. I can’t talk about antagonists without getting into a **Spoiler Alert*** so I won’t go there.
The rising action was continuous to the point of leaving me exhausted in places. The narrative of the chase through the mountains was incredible.
The anti climax was, I thought, well constructed and added a neat explanation to better explain the overall story. Falling action and resolution were both very satisfying as well.
There’s no question, “David Wolf” is to Jeff Carson as “Harry Bosch” is to Michael Connelly. The Wolf series is the reason why I and the likes of others who have read the prior eleven books will continue to do so never mind how many other stories Carson intends putting out.
This may be the best David Wolf story yet, which says a lot for the skill of the author, Jeff Carson. The characters remain fresh, interesting, and well developed. Surprises you won’t see coming, and a complex who-done-it just add to the fun. Book 12 of this series does stand alone well, but you may want to start at the beginning of the series to fully enjoy the David Wolf experience. An engaging and entertaining read!
Short review: read it.
Jeff Carson is a must buy, must read author. His David Wolf series are realistic stand-alones. No editing errors, gratuitous violence or drag-you-down drama.
Intriguing storyline with descriptive writing that draws one into each scene. Whatever the character is experiencing; glorious scenery, miserable weather, emotional turmoil or physical issues, you are there. Several twists throughout keep the reader guessing. Realistic procedures, actions and reactions.
Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking, informative and occasionally snarky dialogue.
“Have you ever heard of a samskara?”
"The word has several meanings in Indian philosophy. I like to think of them as trapped energy stored in our hearts.”
“If anyone says a word to the media about what’s going on with any of our fellow deputies, either with any current situation that may or may not be happening, or any future situations that might occur, I will personally shove my fist so far up their a@@ I’ll be combing their hair through their nostrils. Thanks, Patty.” He sat down.
I will re-read this story and always look forward to new works by this author.
