This is a place to read what I think about various books and to give your own opinions about books. I am a plain-spoken person but this is not the place for any hurtful words. Being hurtful accomplishes nothing for anyone.
This was my first experience reading Catherine Coulter and
how lucky I am that she has written so many books for me to read. The title
most certainly matches the storyline. I can’t help but wonder how an author
lays out such an intricate plot. There must be a blueprint drawn up first like
an architect would draw or maybe a mathematician with a long equation. One
thing about this deep and complex plot is
that it is not hard to follow. This
is a book you must focus on when reading because it has plenty of twists and
turns but then this isn’t a cozy. It’s a complex novel of the crime fiction
When you read a book and immediately like the characters and
the relationships between them, I think this is due to the skill of the author in
defining and describing them to a point where you can get to know them. I immediately
liked Savich and Sherlock. I felt the same about Ty and Sala. Well, this isn’t
fair…I felt the same way about Gunney and her Godfather too. Heck, I guess I
liked them all, except for the bad guys, of course.
Another thing that was done
well is the technique of combining two very serious, very complex crimes at the
same time. This switching back and forth can often be confusing and very
frustrating but somehow Coulter manages to keep her storyline weaving
throughout all the time. Making you only anxious to read more about each crime
and wanting to get back to it to know what is happening. Quite a feat or maybe
just excellent writing.
