Présentation de l'éditeur

In Aspen, Colorado, a pop star and her entourage are brutally murdered in their luxury chalet. The lead assassin, ex-Navy SEAL Cyril Landry, has no qualms about carrying out his mission until the instant before he kills the young star—an intense, shared moment that will ultimately drive him to find out why these people had to die. Landry transforms from mercenary to hunter as he delves into the depths of The Shop, the shadowy organization that has hired him to execute people across the country.

Thousands of miles away, in a seedy motel in Gardenia, Florida, a local police chief is found shot to death. The scene has all the signs of a romantic rendezvous gone wrong, but Detective Jolie Burke isn’t so sure. As she digs for clues, the tangled threads of evidence lead to a disturbing place: Indigo, the lush tropical estate of the powerful Haddox clan and home of US Attorney General Franklin Haddox. As Jolie continues to pursue the truth, she quickly discovers that Haddox will do anything to protect his country’s ugly secrets—even kill.

Landry’s quest to uncover The Shop’s motives throws him into the dark currents of Jolie’s investigation, and they find themselves working together as an unlikely duo: a cop and a killer, joining forces to expose a shocking conspiracy that ascends to the highest offices in the land.

Intricate and fast-paced, The Shop is a breathtaking thriller in the vein of Nelson DeMille and David Baldacci.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Can Compete with the Top Sellers 26 mars 2011
Par Maynard F. Allington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Today's thriller market has a number of franchise authors who consistently grind out "best sellers." Their plots are, for the most part, skillfully constructed, and they know how to tell a story. But their writing skills are often ordinary, even mundane, and rarely soar into that rarefied atmosphere of "style" that is the mark of a great writer. There was a time when stylists such as Eric Ambler and Graham Greene owned the thriller genre and lifted it to the level of literature. J. Carson Black is a throwback to that generation. She not only has the technical skills to shape a novel, but a gift for words that crosses into that exclusive literary terrain of art.

THE SHOP opens in a tense action sequence with the assassination in Aspen, Colorado of Brienne Cross, a well known actress/pop star. The hit is carried out with military precision by a lone assassin who vanishes from the scene, leaving no clue behind, least of all a motive.

The assassin is Cyril Landry, former SEAL and now a member of a black ops unit (known as "the shop") operating within a private security firm. The firm has been used on occasion by the government for missions requiring solutions outside the law. Landry is a man of contradictions - on the one hand devoted to his family, on the other capable of killing dispassionately. But the execution of Brienne Cross troubles him. For the first time, he finds himself drawn emotionally to a dead target. The years of mental programming that have conditioned him to kill, never questioning an order, are suddenly coming apart. In the course of this psychological dislocation, Landry will come to learn why Brienne's death was ordered, and will turn against the shop.

A second story line opens in a motel room on the gulf coast of Florida where a police chief has been found dead. Sheriff's homicide detective Jolie Burke is assigned to investigate. She suspects the suspicious death was a suicide, covered up by the victim's wife to protect his name. A tough, seasoned investigator, Jolie has some deep issues in her life, and a terrifying, repressed fear from early childhood.

Jolie's investigation will lead to a puzzling string of interrelated homicides that reach into the highest corridors of power. Eventually it will bring her into contact with Landry, on his own mission of vengeance against the shop, and a confrontation with the childhood memory she has blocked out. The life and death climax, when the antagonists finally clash on a private island off the Florida coast,is a masterpiece of narrative tension and suspense.

THE SHOP is original in concept, skillfully plotted and paced, with three dimensional characters, all of which make for an intriguing read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A satisfying thriller 24 mars 2011
Par Ian K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Cyril Landry is a loving husband and father, a former SEAL, and now a killer working for The Shop. After his latest assignment -- a massacre in Aspen, Colorado -- Landry develops an emotional bond with one of his victims, a young and beautiful pop star. Feeling that something went wrong, Landry sets out to uncover the plot he's been part of. Meanwhile, homicide cop Jolie Burke is investigating a case that quickly goes out of control. As she untangles the mystery, the body count rises. When the subplots converge, Landry and Jolie find themselves facing a shocking conspiracy with an electrifying climax.
Anyone who enjoys a good thriller should check this one out. The Shop is full of intrigue, twists and turns. With such glowing blurb quotes from Gayle Lynds and David Morrell I knew I couldn't go wrong -- and I wasn't disappointed!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another winner from the pen of J Carson Black 11 avril 2011
Par Carol Davis Luce - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
So many thrillers nowadays seem to have the same premise, with nothing new to set it apart from the pack. Not so with J Carson Black's THE SHOP. Even the title hints at intrigue and something out of the ordinary. I've read all of this author's novels, and each one demonstrates her skill for the craft by way of extensive research, character development, prose that sings, and thought-provoking plots that stay with you long after you read The End. Black is truly a master at writing police procedurals and high-concept novels. They just get better and better. Once you've sampled one, you won't be able to stop there.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't Waste Your Time 18 mai 2011
Par Cherry Duke - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is terrible! After reading the other reviews I thought this book showed a lot of promise, but found the writing and plot to be confusing, disorganized, and boring. The character development was subpar and several characters were developed that then had almost no bearing on the story. The only reason I finished this book was in the hopes of it all making sense in the end, only to find the book has no ending! Instead you are directed to a website which is just a marketing ploy! I found this to be an abuse of the audience and a cheap ploy to market the author's other (probably just as terrible) books. It is as though the author wrote this the weekend before the deadline and felt no need to submit quality work. This book should never have been published. Do yourself a favor and do not waste your time reading this book.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Premise Intriguing - Excecution Awful 17 février 2012
Par Robert Goldberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Read this via the Kindle Lending Library over the last couple of days. The initial premise is intriguing, but the author tried way too hard to tie everything together, and have everything come to the end in one standoff. A better author might have done a better job of hiding the big "twist", which wasn't much of a twist at all, but J. Carson Black simply couldn't. A better solution might have been to not include all the family drama during the end, or have characters who were allegedly integral to the story die off page. But, to me, the biggest issues are (1) the cop's water phobia (a cop in Florida never had to deal with water before the events of this book? Really?) (2) the lone bad guy who ran the whole operation (haven't we seen enough of this ridiculous easy solution in thrillers?) and (3) the superhuman soldier who wipes out dozens of people throughout this book and never gets caught. That's the most ridiculous one, and just lazy writing.
