I was surprised I liked this story so much, when the leading character was not a rugged action character (like Bruce, Sly, or Arnold), but instead, a small young female. But Trish is one tough cookie, yes indeed. This would make a great movie, and I figure they could even adapt it to fit into the "Die Hard" franchise by getting Mary Elizabeth Winstead to reprise her role as John McClane's daughter (from Live Free or Die Hard [Blu-ray]), and base the movie on her, instead of her famous father. The book features some really "bad" bad guys (and one girl). Every time they think they have killed Trish or have her trapped she survives and keeps coming back. Determination must be her middle name. This was my first book by Michael Prescott, but it will not be the last. I think I will get Stealing Faces next, as that book looks up my alley as well.
What a great movie this would make!
Finding out why and who caused everything to happen so soon in the story, took away that surprise element of betrayal that I love so much. This story would have been over-the-top amazing had everything been revealed when the other characters actually figured out what was really happening and why.
This book is fast paced and exiciting. Trish is a fighter and a worthy opponent. The killers revel in their ruthlessness and I was glad that there was no attempt to mitigate their badness. Even Lillith, child sex victim and adult sadist, is irredeemable. There is no moral equivacation. Even though I figured out who all the bad people were quite early on, it still was a fun read. The Trish/Cain connection was not terribly convincing but there is nothing wrong with a little lsuspension of belief. All in all, a fast paced thriller,well worth the read.
It pits a rookie cop, Trish Robinson, up against some very brutal & cold bad guys. The plot seems to be a home invasion of a wealthy family & their dinner guests. There may be more than meets the eye to the story.
The action & violence can be on the graphic side. The characters are nicely developed. Especially the protagonist & antagonist.
As a rookie, Trish may be a bit above her capabilities in creative license taken by the author. No matter, it's still a page turner.
At a Kindle price of $0.99, the novel becomes even more attractive
Trish Robinson, a newly appointed police officer in the small town of Santa Barbara is on her first patrol with Pete Wald, her training officer. They receive a call about a prowler in the yard of a local, prominent and very wealthy, family. They answer the call and the non-stop action begins and continues to the very end with Trish involved in endless life-threatening situations.
With respect to the mechanics of presentation, suffice it to say, that Prescott/Harper has so intricately woven all of the features together that further description can only interfere with the reader's enjoyment. Additionally, he has characterized Trish and her involvement so adroitly, that even when some of her feats stretch credibility, your reader will not take time to analyze them - a feat not often accomplished by an author.
I recommend the book highly as a fun read, unless you find violence against women, even in murder mysteries, too abhorrent. Reviewed by John H. Manhold, award winning fiction/non-fiction author.
