3.0 von 5 Sternen Hmmmmmmm .... 18. Juli 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich lese Sharon Bolton liebend gerne, ich liebe die Reihe mit Lacey Flint & Co und so hatte ich mich auf spannende Stunden mit "A dark and twisted tide" gefreut. Spannend waren die Stunden auch - allerdings war die Auflöung auf den letzten Seiten des Buches in einem Maße "twisted", dass ich nur noch die Augen verdrehen konnte ... Shyamalan ist nichts dagegen. So gern ich an sich ja überraschende Wendungen mag - aber wenn ich mich am Ende frage wozu ich 440 Seiten lese damit dann auf den letzten 9 Seiten doch aus heiterem Himmel alles anders ist bleibt einfach ein schales Gefühl.
Für meinen Geschmack ist DAS Buch von S.J. Bolton sicher nicht das Beste - auch wenn es durchaus Spaß gemacht hat zu lesen - zumal mit den Entwicklungen der Nebenfiguren. Ich freu mich einfach auf das nächste Buch ... :-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Lacey so far 14. Mai 2014
Von Sophie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Sharon Bolton is such an intelligent writer and I always know, the moment I pick up one of her Lacey Flint books, nothing will be important until I’ve finished it. A Dark and Twisted Tide was another fantastic novel from an author who can do no wrong in my eyes. The suspense and mystery was gripping and I think this is probably the best Lacey book so far for me.

So, Lacey, living on her boat, has become a bit of a fan of swimming in the Thames. That is, of course, until the moment she finds a body floating in there. I’ve always quite fancied staying on a boat – thought it would be nice, peaceful and serene. Safe to say, I’m never stepping near another boat again! It makes me shudder just thinking about it. As the plot unfolds, it becomes more chilling, more unnerving and more disturbing yet brilliant as you realise you’re reading Bolton at her best.

The twists were executed wonderfully and I was in suspense right from the beginning. As the story went back and forth, my attention was stole and I was drawn into the investigation, the perfect setting and the even-more developed, great character of Lacey. Lacey is probably my favourite book character in any series but I loved her even more in A Dark and Twisted Tide. Bolton’s character development is flawless and there was a whole host of intriguing characters in this book, as well of the return of brilliant names from past series too like Dana and the fantastic Joesbury. There is just so much excellence poured into this book, it’s impossible for me to not recommend this to you!

A Dark and Twisted Tide was spine-tingling, all-consuming and so, so good. I feel like I’ve been at the Thames myself, pulled through twist after twist with no clue where it was going to go next. Bolton’s writing can get no better (although remind me of that when I tell you otherwise in the next book) – A Dark and Twisted Tide is very spooky and completely stunning.

5/5.

*Book gifted for honest review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Till human voices wake us, and we drown..." 9. Mai 2014
Von FictionFan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
After her recent experiences, Lacey has stepped back from her role as a detective and joined the Met's Marine Unit, patrolling the Thames. She's also moved to live on a houseboat moored in Deptford Creek and taken up the highly dangerous sport of river-swimming. And it's when she's out swimming alone one early morning that she finds the first body...

This is another excellent entry in the Lacey Flint series, with all the regulars back in fine form. Mark Joesbury (sigh!) is off on an undercover mission but we know he won't be able to stay away from Lacey for long. Dana's long-distance relationship with Helen is still continuing, and Dana is becoming desperate to have a child. And Lacey, although still suffering the after-effects of her last couple of cases, is continuing to move towards a more normal existence - she's just about ready to finally accept that there may be a life for her with Mark.

I'd suggest that although at a push this book could work as a standalone, it would be much better to read the series in order starting with Now You See Me. The crime story works fine on its own, but the characters develop and grow so much throughout these books that a new reader coming in in the middle might be left a bit puzzled as to the dynamics amongst the members of the team.

Normally Bolton's plotting is one of her major strengths but, to be honest, I didn't think the plot of this one was quite up to her usual standard. It relied a bit too much on coincidence and stretched credulity a little too often and, more than that, I felt the main points of the solution were too easy to work out fairly early on. I also found myself questioning how often we can believe that a killer will specifically target Lacey. However, one of Bolton's slightly less good plots is still about twenty times better than most people's best, and what it perhaps lacked in tension was made up for by the brilliant descriptions of the Thames and the people who live and work on it. There are some of Bolton's trademark creepy moments that set my spine nicely a-tingle - I was never a huge fan of crabs but oooh! Well! They may figure in my nightmares for a while now...

The story is hard-hitting but as always Bolton manages to tell it without gratuitously-described violence or excessive foul language; and, though the murder victims are young women, Bolton is far too talented and original to rely on tedious scenes of sexual humiliation and torture to harrow her reader's soul. Lacey is a bit of a maverick, but thankfully not a drunken one, and more and more we see her trying to conform to rules and procedures. One of the most enjoyable aspects of this series has been watching Lacey's gradual transformation from weird loner to valued team-member - she's not completely there yet, but she's getting close. And the fact that she's changed so much and yet remained completely credible is a testament to Bolton's skill in characterisation.

By a tiny margin, not the best in the series perhaps, but still one of the best books I've read or expect to read this year - highly recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Dark and Twisted Tide 3. Juni 2014
Von K. Branfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
In A Dark and Twisted Tide, Sharon Bolton’s newest addition to the Lacey Flint series, the River Thames is an intriguing and unique setting for a murder investigation. Ex-homicide detective Lacey Flint not only lives on the Thames, but as a member of the Marine Unit, she also works there as well. After she discovers the shrouded remains of a young woman, the subsequent investigation reveals an eerie similarity to previously recovered remains.

With her curiosity piqued by the body she discovered, Lacey tries to remain on the periphery of the ensuing investigation. However, it soon becomes clear that someone is trying to draw her attention to the unnoticed deaths. Unexplained gifts, glimpses of a mysterious swimmer and the blatant display of the latest victim make it obvious that someone wants Lacey involved in the case. So Lacey, along with DCI Dana Tulloch, keep digging for any possible connection between the victims, but fitting together the pieces of this perplexing mystery is virtually impossible.

Lacey is still the fascinating, if somewhat mysterious, heroine that she has always been. She has carved out a quiet life on the Thames and she has become friends with a few of her neighbors, but she still closely guards her secrets. Lacey’s romance with fellow detective Mark Joesbury is hindered by his current case which takes him deep undercover, but they do make a little progress during his quick, but meaningful, visits. Her uneasy professional relationship with Dana Tulloch becomes less rocky and they actually work well together once their investigation begins to produce results.

The mystery element of A Dark and Twisted Tide is full of unexpected twists and turns and easily keeps the reader guessing the killer’s identity for much of the novel. While I had a good idea that some of the secondary characters were somehow involved in the unfolding story, I could not figure out how or why. The chapters shift between different viewpoints and while interesting, there is little context to fit these different perspectives into the investigation. The pacing is a little slow until the last quarter of the novel and then it rushes at a breakneck speed to a dramatic and very surprising conclusion.

A Dark and Twisted Tide is another superb installment in Sharon Bolton’s Lacey Flint series and although it can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend the entire series

I received a complimentary copy for review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read 5. Juni 2014
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As do many of the author's books, this one leaves you aching with both tears and joy for the way so many of us manage to grow through, beyond and in despite of the damage we suffer. Lacey, the main character is brilliant, resilient and scarred, Thessa is a marvellous character, and the story goes surprising and deeply touching places.

4.0 von 5 Sternen No one can make the River Thames a character in a book the way Sharon Bolton can 5. Juni 2014
Von Cathy G. Cole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
One of the best parts of Sharon Bolton's Lacey Flint series is her main character's growth. From someone adept at masking her true self, a self who doesn't play well with others, Lacey is slowing growing and learning to become part of a team. She has flashes of true brilliance as a homicide detective, but her prickly, standoffish nature has made most (but not all) of her fellow detectives unwilling to work with her. In A Dark and Twisted Tide, Lacey almost fits in with her fellow detectives, and it will be interesting to see the progress she may-- or may not-- make in the next book.

There's not another writer today who can make the River Thames a living, breathing, and at times malevolent character the way Bolton does. I've learned so much about the river, its behavior, and its history from following Lacey. I've also learned that the Thames can be so eerie and menacing that it can make chills run down my spine.

Combined with her two main characters-- Lacey and the Thames-- Bolton adds a tightly woven plot with plenty of twists and turns. Moreover, although there are dead bodies, women in extreme danger, and those scenes that make you jump out of your skin if there's the slightest noise behind you as you read, Bolton doesn't create her tension with graphic violence, torture, or gore. There are quite a few writers who could learn a lot from her.

A Dark and Twisted Tide can be read as a standalone, but to appreciate fully the character of Lacey Flint, I'd suggest that you begin at the beginning with Now You See Me. If you do, I'll envy your being able to meet this extraordinary character for the very first time.
