Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Strangers on BART, San Francisco's subway system, meet and make mayhem in this first novel by television writer/producer Clyde Phillips, who pays off on his debt to Alfred Hitchcock by updating the master and adding a few new twists. When lawyer David Perry blabs to his subway seatmate, a seedy mechanic named Barton Hubble, that he's about to be divorced by his rich wife, Hubble decides to do his new friend a favor by killing the offending wife. But then Perry refuses to acknowledge his share of the drunken bargain, and Hubble becomes a serious threat. There's a bright, attractive cop named Jane Candiotti and several exciting action scenes that take place far below and well above ground--even on the Golden Gate Bridge. --Dick Adler

Kurzbeschreibung

Veteran San Francisco homicide detective Jane Candiotti never had a problem drawing the line between her personal and professional lives—until the night she meets David Perry after his socialite wife, Jenna, is brutally murdered. The facts are damning: the Perrys were embroiled in a bitter divorce and now David stands to inherit millions in the wake of Jenna’s death. But Jane’s instincts tell her there’s more to this case than just greed and love gone sour.

To uncover the truth, she must dig into the sordid secrets of the city’s most powerful families, a quest that will draw her inextricably closer to David and his teenage daughter…and to the cold-blooded killer who’s stalking their every move. But when the case takes a shocking turn, it’s not just Jane’s reputation that’s hanging in the balance—it’s her life.

A terrifying noir thriller from the executive producer of Dexter, Fall From Grace was hailed by Dennis Lehane as “a deftly plotted first novel with the pace of a hurricane and the impact of an earthquake.”

1.0 von 5 Sternen 3 improbable things 6. August 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There improbable things about this book: (1) the plot; (2) the fact that it was ever published; and (3) that I actually wasted money on it. Wouldn't have been worth a quarter in a bargain bin at the used book store.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Shows how hype can influence people's opinions. 29. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is barely passable as a mystery-thriller. But everything in it has been done before and better. It does show, however, what the influence of mediocre television has on the author. It also shows how even reviewers are so sated with mediocrity that they elevate the mediocre to a higher plane. I just don't get it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Don't waste your time 12. September 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A creaky plot. An insipid heroine. Supporting characters straight out of the stereotype zone. There's nothing noir about this book except its cover. Jane Candiotti is more concerned about getting the ex-husband of the deceased in bed than finding the killer, and then she whines about how weary she is from everyone depending on her too much (when in fact it's her brother Timmy who's carrying the lion's share of responsibility for caring for ill Dad, and her male partner who's really working the murder investigation). Philips needs to spend more time around real-life detectives and less time fantasizing about a woman so needy and pliable. She's about as gritty and intriguing as a Harlequin romance.

1.0 von 5 Sternen The worst mystery book I've ever read in my life. 26. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The most unrealistic representation of police work I've ever read in a mystery book. Predictable plot twists, lame plot twists, outrageous plot twists. The dialog is wooden and stiff, as befitting one-dimensional characters. The prose is heavy-handed; at times it appears as if the author is simply trying to impress us with his knowledge of arcane words...anyone can buy a dictionary. Your system should be revised to include zero stars.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Plot Good! 15. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Basically, the plot involved in this tale is good. However, I have to agree with another of the reviewers about the writing style: it just doesn't cut it! While Clyde may be a former screenwriter, a literary genius he's not. There are traces of "screenwriting" dialogue throughout the book. However, I give him credit for the plot and story and for the character development. As a writer myself, I was disappointed in the use of the English language. Read a P.D. James! When the English speak English, it's an art form! Clyde used words such as "scooched and hunkered," which really turn me off. I hate slang in prose. It's ok if the characters say it, but don't use it in the text of the book. Reading nowadays has led me to believe that the proper use of the English language in this country is a dying art. I would expect top editors (not only of this book, but of other best sellers or mass markets, as well) to really fine-tooth comb the manuscript for poor use of the language. Again, best wishes to Clyde for his first book -- the plot and story were very interesting. A writer!

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
FALL FROM GRACE plasters you to the book on the first page and never let's go. The characters are compelling, commanding, real; the plot fascinating, with more twists than Hwy 1; and the pacing is break-neck beautiful. Rarely, if ever, have I read a debut novel (or one by an old hand) that has kept my heart in my throat and me on the edge of my chair from start to finish. Phillips' book did. He has a compelling style, a gritty insight into human nature--even the sides of it we want to recoil from--and explores them without flinching. (Kudos to him on that!) Obviously, since this is his first novel, it's my first opportunity to read Clyde Phillips' work. It definitely won't be the last!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Mystery With A Heart 28. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Fall From Grace has enough suspense to keep you hanging chapter after chapter -- believe me, if you're anything like me, you won't put it down until long after the sun comes up. And yet, even more compelling than the twists and turns in Phillips' plot is his heroine, Jane Candiotti, a shrewd detective with brains to spare but a heart full of longing. The combination of strength and vulnerability makes her one of the most absorbing characters you'll find in any mystery. I loved every delicious page of this clever, masterful thriller. Can't wait for the next one!

2.0 von 5 Sternen too much
A bit too much of everything (especially the bridge), predictable story, unbelievable coincidences. Thumped thru the second half only to get the book finished.

The plot was unfortunately more focused on the lonelyand desperate main character than on the investigation. A new genre of Harlequin ?
