I picked this book knowing absolutely nothing about it. Truthfully I was pleasantly surprised to find it was about a wounded retired cop. I certainly wasn't expecting much from a free Kindle read, but was constantly and pleasantly surprised.
The multiple plot changes were smooth, believable and surprising! I knew exactly how Mr. Prichard felt at every surprising turn.
When I describe The Grave Man this way, it sounds incredibly intriguing. And honestly the premise is good - the story is appealing. I found some of the plot was a little over the top. Sending a low-level drug dealer to transport something so vitally important didn't seem like a great idea to me, no matter how crucial it was to throw the bad guys off the trail. Indie and her four year old experience an extremely traumatic event and an hour later they're in the backyard, frolicking and kicking balls around? But this is fiction and plausibility is often thrown out for the sake of entertainment. I did enjoy the author's nod to a certain conspiracy theory, however.
There's a lot of action in the book, so that was a plus. It's not a long read, in fact the last 10% or so of this book is really the beginning of the author's next book. The huge problem I had with this book was the atrocious editing. There's no excuse for poor editing, even (especially?) when self-publishing and even if the book is free. I'm not the only reviewer to mention this, so I would hope the author uses this constructive criticism to do a complete re-edit. Considering the incredible amount of typos, I can only give this book 3 stars.
The language of the whole book felt like story time for adults. If you're an accomplished reader you'll go crazy reading this book. The excessive placement of exclamation marks alone made me want to edit the book for FREE for this author. However, I didn't notice the typos that others mentioned, so I am guessing the book has been updated. Throughout the story, I felt like the writer had a MLS guide pulled up to verify punctuation and sentence structure. It bothered me bad enough that I did not and probably won't buy the next book.
For the characters, I felt like there could have been a lot more description. Many readers are visual people, so take a dang minute and tell me what they look like. Tall, pretty and cute are not the best descriptors. In my opinion, a GREAT book should play like a movie in your head while reading.
Those things aside, the story was entertaining, and if it was written 10% better, I would have become a fan.
