Second, nobody crafts a thriller like Barry Eisler, except maybe Daniel Silva and few others. Every sentence drives the action. Nothing is wasted. Nonstop tension and drama. If you don't like the story itself, but you're interested in what makes a good story, get this, dissect it, and you've got the formula, not at all easy to replicate, but excellently executed by Eisler in the Lost Coast.
Third, hey, it's $2.99. You haven't got $2.99 to pitch in towards Eisler's experiment at self-publishing? Eisler is the author of not one but many international bestsellers. At a time when the literary market is going through a wrenching transition, Eisler is out there, experimenting with this new venue, self-publishing the Lost Coast through Amazon and other outlets. $2.99 gets you a story, an exciting hour or two, a lesson in what makes a great thriller, and you help fund a continuing experiment that may well help the publishing industry find its legs in this new marketplace.
Mostly though you want to read this story because Eisler's next novel isn't on the shelves yet, and yeah, nasty as he is, it's fun -- if just in fiction or perhaps especially only in fiction -- to see Larison dish out some rough justice. Ok maybe a little too rough for some, maybe a little too rough for me, but the fact that Eisler brings Larison to life to the point where the reader even thinks that, tells you something about his craft as an author.
Larison is a wonderful character from INSIDE OUT, deep and intriguing. It is not necessary to have read the book to appreciate the story, however. Barry's ability to create this episode in the character's life stands by itself. His writing style will pull you in from the beginning.
Included you will find an interview with J. A. Konrath (surprise) the King of E-publishing and also a brief excerpt from Barry's next novel THE DETACHMENT which will bring together Ben Treven and John Rain. I will probably have to read this many times before it is finally published. :-)
Its the new year and I'm feeling charitable.
Im a big fan of Eisler and of John Rain. This story had some surprises for me, not knowing anything about Larison.
If you know the Larison character you can probably guess pretty much what going to happen. For me it was a brief introduction but didn't really make me want to spend more time with him.
The story wasn't developed but did provide a certain catharsis.
It would be perfectible suitable for a magazine or collection.
There's is a lot of publicity and self promoting material added at the end of the book? Story? E- publication? It wasn't particularly enlightening or interesting.
I guess i was hoping for more. I like Eisler's blog.
Mr. Eisler deserves my monetary support and I don't regret paying but this "package" falls short of my expectations.
