Kurzbeschreibung

Mara Cunningham knew that sleeping with a married man was a bad idea. But when her lover shows up in the hospital after his wife and son are murdered, the rumors about Mara turn dangerous. Now she's the prime suspect in a double homicide, and the real killers will stop at nothing to silence her. Mara's race against time takes her from the dense heart of Boston to the dark woods of New Hampshire, from gritty streets to the halls of power. Before she's through, she'll learn just which of her friends she can trust - and she'll stare death in the face.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A thrilling read 5. Dezember 2011
Von Chacks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Too Close to Miss is an excellent addition to the thriller genre, with the added bonus of offering a strong, complex, female lead. Mara Cunningham is the kind of ass-kicking, morally ambiguous, yet ultimately relatable heroine that ensures that the thriller genre won't stay a boys club. The author writes with a cinematic eye; you can imagine this story on film. The book opens with a bang and never relents as you're pulled into a complicated world, where a mistress can be a hero, and not all is what it seems in the city of Boston. I stayed up way too late finishing this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Too good to miss! (I have a feeling that tag line has been used already...) 21. Dezember 2011
Von Mike Shapiro - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A compelling, incisively smart, and witty thriller; in some ways comparable to Lawrence Shames' work in its balance of character arc, plot, and immersion in a particular city (in this case, Boston). The story takes about two chapters to grab your interest fully, at which point you'll be hooked to the finish. Among the book's virtues is a legitimately likeable (yet imperfect) protagonist, a richly evocative setting, and a number of legitimately surprising plot twists which are nonetheless perfectly logical in retrospect. The author also offers a narrative device wherein the protagonist periodically synopsizes what she's learned about the mystery so far; this helps the reader from feeling lost at sea if s/he forgets some details along the way. The low price is in some senses unfortunate as it understates the book's unusually high quality, but this should encourage you to take the plunge with this new author.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Didn't want to finish it! 11. Mai 2012
Von Emtastic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I must say, I was really excited to read this book based on the other reviews. Like many other readers, I got through this book quickly, in 2-3 days. However, I differed than other readers in the fact that while I was interested in finding out what happened a lot of my drive to finish the book was because I just wanted it to be OVER.

About halfway through it hit me that I really disliked the main character Mara. I found her to be egotistical, cocky and somewhat annoying. Pulled from the other reviews and the book description, I also expected more action and "thrill" to make this fit the thriller genre. When I see that I'm 60% through a book and I'm still trying to figure out what exactly the drama factor is - that's not a good thing.

As the title of my review states, part of me didn't even want to finish this book, it really just wasn't doing it for me. However I have been an avid reader my whole life and have only once "quit" a book. So onward I prevailed. I continued to be disappointed. The ending was abrupt and slightly confusing. I won't go into details to ruin it for other readers but at least for me, there were parts that I was just glad it was at an end rather than try to figure out the answers to the new questions I'd come up with.

I thought this book had potential and was really underwhelmed by the time I got to the last page.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Book for a Trip 23. April 2012
Von Melissa C. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I highly recommend this book to someone who wants a plot-driven, easily consumable thriller. John Perich's debut novel surprised me. The clarity of his narrative voice and ease with which he unraveled a complicated story hinted at someone who has been writing for decades. The economy of style was refreshing. There were just enough descriptive touches to put the story in color, but not so many as to slow down the mystery. I enjoyed the strength of his female protagonist, Mara Cunningham, and hope we get to learn more about her in future books.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Impressive Debut 13. Dezember 2011
Von Bryan D Buckman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Disclaimer 1: The author is an online acquaintance. I like his blogging/commentary and I fully expected this book to be well written.

Disclaimer 2: I hate thrillers. I have had difficulty making it through Ludlum, Forsythe, etc. I especially hate thrillers with no politics and no threat of nuclear explosions.

Combining the two disclaimers, I expected to say that this was a really well written thriller that would be enjoyed by people who like thrillers, but that I was not one. Much to my surprise I found myself staying up last night until eleven (which is really late for me these days) to finish this book. No thriller will ever be Shakespeare; the modern genre just isn't built for that. But Perich here combines a deep knowledge and clear affection for his Boston setting with some enjoyable but human characters that are as well developed as thriller characters can be, and adds a pretty good plot. My criticisms amount to nitpicks: I didn't quite understand the motivations of one villain, and I thought another was a bit over the top, but for a thriller, that's high praise indeed. There are no nuclear explosions, and only a touch of politics, but it worked for me. If you are a thriller fan you will like this book, and if you aren't, like me, you may just like it anyway.
