I was given 3 Omnibus editions last birthday, each featuring 3 of the Myron Bolitar series. Having just finished the first of 9, Deal Breaker, I think I might struggle getting through them all. Entertaining enough in its way, but the set-up is a bit far-fetched, and the humour a bit repetitive so that it became mildly irritating half way through. The mystery / crime bit is quite well done but not very gripping. (In opening this thread I had to go and have a quick peek at Amazon to remind me of the plot.) I am now 2/3rds into the 2nd one, Drop Shot, and much the same comments apply. Any fans out there in BGO-land? Does the style remain constant or does it evolve as the series progresses?
This is an awsone, if somewhat predictable, book. Story: David Beck's wife is taken from him on their anniversary, she is found a few months later dead on the side of the road. Eight years later Beck starts getting mysterious e-mails containing information that only him and his wife know. This makes him think that his wife might just be alive all these years. There is someone very powerful in the city who wants Elizabeth Beck to stay dead. Eight years ago she started unearthing information that threattens said powerful man's reputation. Have you read it? Do you like it?
