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 -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Von Ein Kunde am 15. Juni 1999
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!

"Fall From Grace", Clyde Phillips' first in a series of psychological thrillers, is written like a well-plotted television show---which comes as no surprise springing from the mastermind of many long-running shows ("Parker Lewis Can't Lose" being one of them). This wham-bam shoot-'em-up is furiously paced and intelligent as well. It all seems to begin when handsome lawyer David Perry is told by his beautiful wife that she is suing for divorce. The following emotional battle degenerates into a hateful tug-of-war. Perry moves into a recently purchased condo, pining for more time with his only daughter, Lily, whom his soon-to-be ex-wife wants to deny him visitation rights with. One day, while taking a seemingly random ride on San Francisco's BART transit system, Perry strikes up a conversation with Barton Hubble, a self-proclaimed "expert" on foreign cars...which Perry finds to be fortuitous, since his BMW's recent mechanical problems are the reason he says he's been forced to utilize public transit. The two become unlikely friends when Hubble offers to fix Perry's car "free of charge", in exchange for some free legal advice. Finding a sympathetic ear, Perry spills his anger and bitterness about his wife...and suddenly finds himself in the midst of a murder investigation. His wife is kidnapped from her own house one morning, only to be found brutally murdered and buried in a shallow grave in a nearby park. Enter Jane Candiotti, one of SF's finest homicide detectives. Her and her partner Kenny are handed the investigation, on top of an already full case-load. What the pair don't realize is exactly how complicated their lives and their careers are about to become.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Fall from Grace is a thrill ride from beginning to end. I loved the characters and was consistently intrigued by the twists and turns of the fast-moving story. Phillips makes the backdrop of San Fransisco and the Golden Gate Bridge come breathtakingly alive. An inviting and satisfying read.
