While Turn, book #1, started well, was fast paced and action packed, there were some things difficult to swallow. For example (spoiler): there's no way a military leader in charge of a takeover/evacuation would allow two civilians to take charge. OK, let that slide, but the comment that the Colonel "retreated to his corps" had me laughing since that's not in this character's vocabulary. Also, the officer left in charge by the Colonel is not portrayed properly. (Maybe the author is a civilian and doesn't understand the Military?) The sheriff suffers too jumping from a leader to an idiot to an out-of-control savage; he's negligent in the wrong places. Research would have made this correct and realistic.
These types of inconsistencies are prevalent and distracting. But the twists and turns, along with the stress and events keeps the reader interested in the story. Among other editing errors, this author follows the trend of using god when it is God; prejudice and intolerance, or not standing up to his publisher?
With Detour, book #2, the inconsistencies are coming out of the walls since the author appears not to have planned a better path through this book. The storylines are weak, the thoughts and actions of the sheriff are ridiculous. He's close to his daughter's whereabouts but a weak link keeps him from finding out where she went. Anger and stupidity are now the norm for him. Another spoiler: he's accomplished his mission at the hospital (which the hours spent there are unrealistic - plot planning) and is saved by an armed gang. Does he stay hidden, with his weapons and supplies; nope, he's here I am, take my weapons and goodies, and let me tell you about my secret weapon and where the rest of my people and supplies are hidden. All without a punch to his gut or a drop of water forced down his throat.
I made it almost to the end of Detour, but the poorly thought out storylines, which were mostly good in Turn, and the exponential increase in the stupidity of the sheriff's actions and the farfetched "realism" (yes, zombie story but plot better, then ambiguities aren't glaring at the reader) had me so annoyed I lost total interest in the rest of the story, after 60 percent read. Mr. Kohler started so well and floundered when he could have really had a different zombie story. These books have been out and still have not been corrected? 2*
I thought I had the story all figured out. Nope. You’ll be shocked, too.
The book wraps up this phase of the series very nicely. At the same time, it’s left open for more of the story.
If you’re looking for more Paul Kohler, his shorter works are also incredibly thrilling. Linear Shift is a series of four short stories. Single father Peter tries to raise two teens, loses his job, and is on the edge of losing his home. When a face from his military past surfaces with the answer to all of his problems, Peter embarks on an exciting secret mission.
