review 1: A real page turner-I rushed through the last few chapters to see who lived and who didn't! Very violent but with a love story at its heart, and gripping throughout. Inspired in part by the teenage spree killer, Charles Starkweather, it also reminded me of Badlands, the Terrence M...

review 1: A really enjoyable and interesting novel. As with previous novels by the author the story moves along in an in intricate multi layered fashion which really pulls the reader in. The characters are detailed and thought provoking, added to the well researched theme along with a very...

review 1: The latest R J Ellory and a pre-order so no doubt I was going to buy and read. Having read a few of his books now, I've enjoyed most - dark, complex and often surprising - the best have been compelling reads. A Dark and Broken Heart is a disappointment in some ways. After the ope...

review 1: Loved it. Was very suspenseful in the third act, so much so that I kept turning pages. But I wanted to echo another reviewer of this book who said that "the research literally drips off the page." And it literally does. Loved the way he described Frank's feelings as a cop, the ov...

review 1: Ellory, R. J. THE ANNIVERSARY MAN. (2010). ****. It’s unfortunate, but I tend to rate books by given authors based on their best works. Although this is a terrific thriller that is well-written and well-plotted, there are holes that you won’t find in the author’s previous wo...

review 1: I can't exactly say I didn't enjoy this book, that would be dishonest. But even while enjoying it, I had strong misgivings. Main character Ernesto Perez' narration is a hellish string of hair-raising murders told in graphic detail. At least the character evolves over the course o...

review 1: An unforgettable thriller. Perhaps the best one, in this genre, I have ever read. It's a hell (of a) ride. The tension is practically unbearable and despite the gruesome murders, there is so much tenderness to be found. Excellent!quotes:The most dangerous thing about Earl Sherida...

review 1: Audiobook Review - 4 1/2 StarsNarrated by Doug ColemanAs my first R.J. Ellory novel, "Bad Signs" was a superb pick. Set in 1960's Americana, this novel chronicles the lives of two orphaned half-brothers who survive the horrors of an abusive childhood, abusive juvenile situations,...

review 1: As a brief caveat, this book is definitely "R-rated" due to strong language, violence, and disturbing subject matter.Great plot twists, great storyline, suspenseful, thought-provoking. Very original, a break from the same old story. At times a bit too political as well as conspir...

review 1: R.J. Ellory’s new mystery, A Simple Act of Violence gives the reader a fictional (but all too believable) insight into the political workings of the D.C. justice system. Detective Robert Miller is pulled into what looks like a typical serial murder case — four women have been bru...

review 1: I recently reviewed Ellory’s A Dark and Broken Heart. I said I was less than thrilled because: it’s too much like a movie I've seen too many times before; and because of the protagonist’s limited range, despite the many thousands of words given to his inter-chapter inner monologu...

review 1: I have bought a couple of R J Ellory's novels but I'd never gotten round to reading when I saw this one in an Amazon Kindle sale and thought I'd give it a try.I must admit that I wasn't hooked straight away as the main protagonist NYPD Detective Frank Parrish initially comes acro...

review 1: Too much back story on the mafia that this particular reader wasn't interested in. I almost gave up part of the way through but decided to keep going and I'm glad I did. But even so the pace kept slackening, and once Frank had decided who'd done it - it felt a bit flat to me, eve...

review 1: weer een mooi geschreven thriller van Ellory. Het gaat over een seriemoordenaar en over overlevenden van een seriemoordenaar. De moorden waar het nu over gaat zijn replica's van moorden die jaren terug zijn gepleegd en allemaal door daders die of overleden of in de gevangenis zit...
