Good, Suspenseful Crime Story,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: In Broad Daylight (Taschenbuch)
Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
'In Broad Daylight' is a good and well-written crime novel. The story is fast-paced and suspenseful. I was so interested in the story that I hardly put the book down as I was wanted to find out what would happen next and how the tough FBI investigator would catch the serial killer. Set in Alaska was interesting (at least to me, who's never been there), the crimes were mysterious and the characters interesting.
However, as good and entertaining as the novel was, for me there was something lacking. Everything was a little too predictable and gave me the impression that it was written according to some (possibly even existing) handbook for crime writers. Take a) a brutal serial killer, b) a tough agent, with a small personal handicap, and c) an interesting locale that most of your readers are unfamiliar with. Fasten the pace and make it personal. I may simply be demanding too much, but for me the difference between a good book like this and an excellent book is that the latter breaks the mould, that there is something surprising, unusual, something that makes me go back and re-read the book even though I know the story already. 'In Broad Daylight' is a good, gripping crime novel and a very entertaining read, but lacking that little extra spark to make it great.
