My only complaint is that sometimes there are excessive dialogue exchanges, especially in the first eight chapters before crises and actions take place. After that, I could not put it down. The characters are very realistic. The rascal cop who “intimidates people simply by the way he wears his badge”, the woman politician who answers every question by not answering the question … I especially like the way the devils are brought down - not by justice, but by the selfishness of their own people. That’s the sad reality!
I hope the author will keep producing good work like this!
Camille seeks to excise the demons of her past while simultaneously probing the circumstances of the latest trauma. As she relentlessly pursues the case, a cloud of evil conspirators gathers around her, leading to a dramatic confrontation in book's finale.
I rarely give five-star ratings, but with "The Strategist," first-time author John Hardy Bell has defied the odds and delivered the goods. Finely-described, three-dimensional characters, lucid descriptions of people and action, a plot that keeps the reader guessing until the very end, and protagonists possessing the right balance of strengths and failings all serve to move this page-turner along at a brisk pace. While the book certainly stands on its own merits, it also invites a sequel, which this reader would welcome.
The good guys were not quite as well developed. While Camille's father and Detective Sullivan hit the mark (I liked Sullivan's internal conflict between her instincts and how she should behave as a junior detective), Julia, did not seem rational at all and was very unbelievable, and Camille was simply annoying. This "tough-as-nails" former FBI agent was anything but that. She is described by others in very glowing terms but was just an incompetent, whiny, pity-party.
There were a few gaps in logic such as the reason for a project getting commissioned (why, when the outcome was pretty much already set?) Issues like this made me wonder, but they were not serious enough to ruin the book for me.
There were a few typos, but not enough to really detract from the story.
This book is not at the absolute top of the genre, but it was a pretty good effort from the author. I would certainly give the author another shot, especially if a sequel focused on Sullivan instead of Camille.
