The storyline is intriguing, but the delivery might not be for everyone. The challenge is keeping track of the various characters as the locations shift continuously back and forth. That, in itself, could be problematic for some.
The writing style leaves a little to be desired for me. Grammatical errors detract from the flow and the author’s propensity to describe each character’s wearing apparel does nothing to advance the story and becomes an annoyance at best. Some strong editing would significantly improve the reading experience.
After reading this book I know “Law enforcements did whatever was necessary to the drug lords for hindering the drug traffic in multiple areas of the world.” The story really begins with the death of several mules do to the balloon of drugs rupturing in their stomach causing an overdose. Besides Clay, from MI4, there were officers from several top law enforce groups. CIA, FBI, and New Scotland Yard, that participated in this action plot. All this sets the scene for a lot of fights, gun smoke, blood, and death. What more could you want in a thriller?
Maybe you might want a little less of the fashion show. It seems that the author of this book spent too much time describing the attire of the characters. Better transitions between action scenes would be a better place for all this verbiage. Sometimes the transition between two paragraphs left me in confusion. That required retracing the transitions to realize that there was truly a change in the action; sometimes even different parts of the world and different characters (?).
Now that I have said all that I must also rate this book following my open statement. From my point of view, I am going to give this book a THREE STAR review because I found it hard to read and follow a very good plot that the author offered.
The case soon flowers into an international investigation with an international cast of characters. There are a number of possible suspects throughout the world that have to be sorted out.
The novel can be classified as an international detective story with a full measure of action and intrigue. A vast array of bad guys inhabit this novel, pursued by a large contingent of good guys; a rich tapestry of players.
The author has a collection of favorite words that he uses throughout. A few examples are dazzling, glorious, waltzing, snapped and thumping. I suspect the author used repetitiveness to create a style. Also noticed was repetitive or redundant phraseology -- one phrase immediately (or soon after) followed by the same words or thought. These practices may be disconcerting -- or not. Reviewed by the author of The Children's Story, About Good and Evil.
The story revolves around 18 high profile drug-related deaths. The investigation team wanted to loosen the knots to get the real culprit, who is behind this dreadful act. The action sequences were exemplary, yet the author had maintained the narration in very simple language. Even a non-native English person can easily understand and follow the storyline and can bring in the pictures in their minds.
The story got many twists and turns, we tend to be skeptical on the identity of the murderer, David had managed to retain the suspense till the end.
With drug mules dropping dead at airports around the world, the authorities in each country are keen to find the culprit. It’s not a surprise when one person has the condom full of cocaine burst in their stomach and they drop dead, however when it happens to several people, then something is definitely wrong. However, it’s not going to be an easy thing to investigate, as drug dealers are generally a pretty secretive bunch, and there aren’t too many people that are prepared to put their lives on the line to speak out. Special Agent Jason Clay from MI4 has no doubt that he can track down Drug King Pin responsible for the drugs coming into the UK. The CIA and the FBI also in the hunt, along with many other intelligent agencies from around the world. I couldn’t help but be pulled along by this very entertaining and interesting story.
