Damn fine pie!
Pitch-perfect debut thriller set on the campus of the best law school in the country where a young man learns what is really important in life.
Pretty much one, long, tedious product placement shill, interrupted by cardboard-cut-out characters running around doing pointless and improbable things.
A confectionary of brigadeiro, quindim, pacoca, raspadinha and pe-de-maleque liberally mixed with thriller clichés, covered with a sweet topping of repressed romance, dollops of American jingoism along with a sprinkle of evil. Enjoy!
One might be tempted to call Linwood Barclay the poor man’s Harlan Coben, but Barclay is like one of the knock-off Fendi purses featured in this novel when compared to Coben.
Early story featuring Erast Fandorin!!!!
Much better storytelling than the “S/he Lover of Death” gambits.
Sometimes you read one unsatisfying book from a popular author and “write him off.” Then you read another and discover what the hype is about. Guilty.
