Reviewed in the United States on November 14, 2018
I have given it 3 stars despite the fact that I don’t mind it.
The first book, Killing Floor, was full of suspense and intrigue that I could not put it down until I finished it.
This book, 3rd book in the series, albeit the story was interesting and touched on the Vietnam war, I found it very difficult to complete. The book was very detailed and highly descriptive, particularly on the torture bit, that I had to put it aside to take a break. I have read a lot of murder and mystery book , and some of the parts in those books were gory but obviously not as descriptive and detailed as this one that I could not stomach it.
Additionally, I feel that the book drags on a bit that I got bored at times and skipped a few paragraphs and pages. I am not the type of reader who like skipping sentences, paragraphs and pages as I believe that every word, sentences counts. Hence, I took a long time to finish this book.
I know that it is his earliest book so I am not going to be too judgemental and critical on the author as his later or recent books have been excellent, such as the Midnight Line.
Therefore, the rating is 3 stars maybe representing neutrality, i.e. neither good nor bad but overall conclusion still sits as “Not Sure”.
