Présentation de l'éditeur

A career man, Edwin Murphy has always put more effort into his work than his family. Everything changes for Edwin when his wife files for divorce. On the brink of losing his home, his job and his little girl, Edwin orchestrates an intricate plan to eliminate his wife and regain his former lifestyle.

The police are baffled when bodies begin to appear all over London with no apparent connection between them. Inspector David Morton must think outside the box as he investigates the deadly web of deceit behind the murders.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun read, interesting plot twists, but littered with errors 29 mai 2013
Par Martin Colloby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This was an interesting story, with a lot of twists and turns, but it was spoiled for me by the poor editing and factual errors. It feels like it was written for an American audience, and so used American English terms which made little sense for a story set in London. For example, no English pub landlord would offer a customer "burger and fries" - it would be "burger and chips". Similarly, London does not have a subway, it has the underground, or tube. And detectives do not carry guns, nor do they refer to junior officers as deputies. If you can look past these inconsistencies, and the spelling and punctuation errors that crop up throughout the story, this is a good read.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Predictable and lazy 10 septembre 2012
Par Rachel Hazen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Let me start off by saying that while I didn't like this book at all, I did end up reading all of it in one sitting. It may have been a very frustrating read but it was read. This was very clearly written in three months and then never read again. There's even a "twist" at the end that I hope to God they don't think is a twist. I'm just glad I didn't spend any money on this one.

The book centers around multiple murders in London, the stupid people who commit those crimes, and the poor policemen tasked with solving them. Much of the scenes are unnecessary and are only there to shock and scandalize, the main one being the scene of a prostitute having sex. This is one of the first scenes in the book and seems there just to pander to those who want a gritty read. There was a torture scene that was barely explained (someone else wants it to happen! Why? Who cares!) and most of the gruesome murders were described in great detail for no reason. Welcome to this violent novel, very much not suitable for children as was so graciously stated in the description. Thanks for the intentional warning that was placed only to garner more readers!

The poor plot wasn't even the worst part. It contained multiple typos, tenses magically changed, and several commas were missing which made the sentences quite stilted. The dialogue was awkward and at times made no sense. The writing style involved switching from character to character from page to page, explaining only a brief action that character was taking at that time. In the beginning, I found it to be an interesting way to go about things but then I realized it was going to happen for the entire approximately 80,000 words (thanks again, description!). This was very annoying as the second you got into the action, you were thrown into another person's boring situation. It feel like the authors stopped writing when they couldn't think of anywhere to go with the story and covered it up by changing perspectives. There was either no editor or the editor was very sloppy. Some characters were randomly reexplained and reintroduced while others you were forced to remember on your own. Some abbreviations were defined while others weren't. If I had to read one more explanation of fingerprinting, I wouldn't have finished the book.

The characters themselves had no redeeming qualities and I didn't care about reading the terrible holes they had dug for themselves. Every problem they had (spoiler alert), could be magically solved by killing someone. It was like watching a horror movie: I had no one to root for but the murderers and I didn't care to root for them. Toward the end of the book, the dialogue got noticeably more sloppy, racist, and stereotypical. The Indian boyfriend (and illegal resident) barely spoke English. The Italian suspect had an Italian accent! The man with a Scottish last name had a Scottish accent! The worst one was the homosexual man questioned near the finale. He's dressed flamboyantly! He has a lisp! He calls people silly and has a nickname for his boyfriend! He is wearing a monogrammed bathrobe! At that point it was just offensive and disgusting.

This book is good for a summer read as long as you're willing to excuse half of this lazy book. I'd recommend skipping it. There are a lot of crime novels out there that are better written, more coherent, and at this point, cheaper.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AMAZING FOR A DEBUT NOVEL!! 8 mai 2012
Par Cinta Garcia de la Rosa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
When I first heard about a novel that was going to be written in a maximum of 90 days, I thought that I definitely would need to read that book. My curiosity is huge, especially if the mystery and suspense deal with books. For those people who may think that a novel written in 2 months must be very bad and not worthy of reading I say, you are all wrong. Sean and Daniel Campbell have proved that it is possible to write a very clever, thrilling, and gripping thriller in such a short notice. Written by two different writers, you don't notice the change of writer. The language and style used are professional and very accurate for the kind of novel chosen. The story flows so easily that it is impossible to put the book down. I read it in 3 days (or 3 nights).

About the plot, it is quite original and clever. The main protagonist, Edwin Murphy, has the kind of perfect life that everybody could dream, till he discovers his wife wants to divorce him and leave the country with their daughter. He will plan a very complex plan to kill his wife and, in that way, recover the control of his life. But becoming a murderer is not that easy, and that's how his plan becomes more and more complicated. Is it possible to be a serial killer in the distance? How can the police, with David Morton on the lead, discover what is going on in the streets of London, where they are finding more and more dead bodies? Read this book and follow the steps the police follows to try to solve the mystery.

Lots of different characters in this novel, but every one of them has a very well developed personality, so you feel them quite real. You can pity them, be angry at them, and even take sides. This book will take you in a gripping journey throughout the darkest side of London and its inhabitants.

Highly recommendable. The perfect read for every occasion.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 pointless violence, poor characterisation 17 février 2014
Par Laurel - Publié sur Amazon.com
I tried hard; I made it to chapter 36 before I just quit, with a sigh of relief. I kept thinking there would be more to this book; the author has some writing skills. But no. It just became stupider with more senseless violence as the book went on. I'm guessing the writer is in his early twenties, from his peurile fantasies of torture and murder.

The protagonist is an enigma. He cheerfully plans one murder after another, in the best sociopath tradition, then randomly is concerned about his daughter. (At first I thought it was irony or dark humor but have decided I was wrong.) Zero development of realistic characters.

The book appeared to be a detective story but in order to find out how he gets caught, you have to be willing to slog through chapters of torture done by and to shallow characters. I could attempt to skip some chapters to see what happens, but what's the point? This book Is a lot of work to read, and I imagine it will go on and on until the writer figures he has enough words down.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dead Good! 11 mai 2012
Par Rusty the Hamster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
There are lots of reasons I like this novel. For a start, it has the word 'dead' in it which means that it is either a crime novel or it has ghosts in it. It's the former, so I'm happy. What makes this novel interesting is that it was written, edited and produced in just 90 days, which is three months in old money.

It tells the story of Edwin Murphy, who is having a really bad day. He's lost his job, his wife and stands to lose his daughter and he decides to take action. Chief Inspector David Morton heads the team to investigate a series of seemingly unrelated deaths, a chase to find the truth ensues and it's a gripping read to the end.

This is a crime thriller in the vein of 'Strangers on a Train' only with a modern twist. This isn't a whodunnit but a how-and-canhegetawaywithit and you won't be able to put your Kindle down until you find out. This is a real page turner with lots of twists and turns and the Chief Inspector is a character that I really hope appears again as his character is built upon nicely and I hope, set up to start a series of novels.
