4.0 von 5 Sternen Deadly Motive - great crime reading 24. Dezember 2012
Von Lynxie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Deadly motive is a fast-paced and twisting crime thriller. The Mystery is thoroughly thought out and is not obvious. This takes a brilliant writer to produce this level of suspense without letting the cat out of the bag in advance.

I liked the characters, DS Mackinnon (Jack) and DC Brown (Charlotte) were realistic and believable. They had their flaws and they worked with them, instead of being Hollywood-ised. This was a nice change. The down side to this was that I wanted to know more about their personal lives. You were provided with some aspects of their lives outside of work, but I felt it was too restricted. I wanted to know more. I did, however, love the involvement of Charlotte's Nan, that is a soft spot for me at the moment and it made my connection to Charlotte that much stronger.

There were some unanswered questions in this book, but not to do with the main plot, more to do with the personal aspects we were introduced to. This annoyed me more than anything else, because I wanted to know how things worked out for them.

Now, I understand that some of these questions I have may be answered in the recently released Deadly Obsession: DS Mackinnon series prequel, but I haven't read that, even though in chronological order I should have. Oh well... That will be the next of Butler's books I read for sure!

The science aspect of the story was well researched and was interesting. It felt relevant to the story, without going overboard and into too much nerd-speak. This also, is hard to do, and I think Butler did it well.

If you're looking for a punchy crime book to read, give Deadly Motive a try, you might be surprised how much you enjoy it!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good story, but characters lack depth. 8. Juli 2012
Von ReyGirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The plot was good, the science details were not onerous, and the writing was engaging. But when I finished the book, I was left unsatisfied because it was lacking in character development. When I'm reading a really good book, I get involved in the characters - love them, hate them, feel sympathy for them, whatever - I want to know what happens to them. With this book, however, I didn't feel anything for the characters because I couldn't imagine them as real people. For example, Jack Mackinnon is tall, involved with an older woman, and has a bit of a temper. Beyond that, he's a blank.

I'm interested enough to read the next book - but I hope the author develops the characters more.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good starter 16. August 2013
Von Kenneth G. Bristow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Deadly Motive, was a pleasant read; first in the series about McKinnon. A little slow but Mckinnon was portray d as downtrodden DS in the London Police. He feel foul of the Chief because the Chef's son was bad mouthing him at a party so Mckiinon slugged him. Pretty decent story line. Just started reading the second in the series, "Deadly revenge" so I must not have found it too bad. .

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good but not his best 30. April 2013
Von Barron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Another good case for DS Jack McKinnon. I found this one a little harder to keep up with who's who and a storyline that's pretty much been done before. However, if scientific research stories are your thing this could be one you would enjoy...
