Présentation de l'éditeur

Maggie Riley has settled into her new life in Thailand, working aboard her sailboat and doing her best to leave the past behind. When she receives a letter from a World War II vet claiming to have served with her grandfather who went missing in action, Riley is once again pulled into the intrigue that tore her family apart and led to the disappearance of her former search partner—and the love of her life.

Armed with the secret code her grandfather left behind, Riley must head to the Philippines to hunt for a mysterious shipwreck, uncover the truth of Yamashita’s gold, and find the answers to old questions about her own family.

Biographie de l'auteur

Christine Kling has spent more than thirty years messing about with boats. It was her sailing experience that led her to write her first four-book suspense series about Florida female tug and salvage captain Seychelle Sullivan. Christine earned an MFA in creative writing from Florida International University and her articles, essays, and short stories have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies. The first novel in the Shipwreck series, Circle of Bones, was released in 2013, and Dragon’s Triangle continues the adventures of Riley and Cole. Having retired from her job as an English professor at Broward College in Fort Lauderdale, Christine sails the waters of the Pacific, the Atlantic, and the Caribbean with her pup Barney, the Yorkshire Terror, and she goes wherever the wind and good Wi-Fi may take her.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Find a Thrilling Treasure in the DRAGON'S TRIANGLE 1 mai 2014
Par Tinfoot - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Want it all? Exotic chase scenes, deadly encompassing conspiracies, hidden war treasures, dastardly compelling villians, dark family secrets, witty one liners and a touch of steamy sex? DRAGON'S TRIANGLE struck me as sharing plot elements of Neal Stephenson's genre defining CRYPTONOMICON and action techniques of Ian Fleming's legendary international spy thrillers, giving it all in one non-stop go-go-go.

Christine Kling has included all the standard elements that makes an Action Thriller a real action thriller. Some more jaded readers may roll their eyes at the usual plot devices, but these devices are seamlessly interlocking with action, dialogue, characterization, and internal polish; no one can come away without the feeling one just witnessed within the theatre of imagination a truly worthy thriller, complete with the unexpected twist. Fluidly written with just enough technical jargon and accurate description to entice but without mind-numbing details to boggle the understanding or verbose word paintings to obstruct the pacing, Kling shows a depth of research that fits all the disparate story lines into a single cohesive, satisfying end. The novel itself is so fast paced that I finished it in seven hours, even with an after-lunch nap, but at the same time compelling enough to place it with my select number of novels that I will read again.

At the time I had entered into the high adventures of Riley and her comrades, I had no clue there was a preceeding novel, THE CIRCLE OF BONES. However, speaking as one who has always felt utterly compelled to read a series in order, I felt quite comfortable with DRAGON'S TRIANGLE as a stand-alone novel. The pre-existing complexity of the various characters' background gave rise to the impression of another novel, but continuing plots are melded into DRAGON'S TRIANGLE with a robust integration, never vague or partial, never requiring a prior knowledge as a "needful thing." I count this approach as added laurels to Kling's achievement; the easy assumption that one has followed from the beginning is a very common and sometimes dissuading one for new readers.

There were some small odd bits in the story, such as a chronological error concerning ship time (i.e. 0100 when the author obviously meant 1300), brief puzzling action choices (the heroine is in the midst of sabotaging with her bra- and takes time to do what? Okay...), and an intimate scene that wasn't graphic but still torrid, resulting in silly juvenile sexual innuendos sprinkled throughout the remainder of the novel. Yet aside from all these minor points, Kling has crafted an excellent entertainment, one that any fan of the genre will find fulfilling, perhaps even tongue-in-cheek amusing.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Didn't Work For Me 15 mai 2014
Par Darcia Helle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book did not work for me at all. My complaints are many:

First, there is a complete lack of character development. I had no idea who these character were or what drove their behavior. We have a lot of viewpoint characters, which likely contributes to this problem. We don't go deep into any character, but instead jump endlessly from one to another.

The characters' behavior often felt contrived, silly, and unrealistic. I don't want to give spoilers, so I'll just say that Riley's reactions to certain situations had me rolling my eyes. The "bad guys" were cardboard stereotypes with a network of similar stereotypical bad guys.

The plot was overly complicated, convoluted, and often far too convenient. There were a lot of near captures, escapes, running away, and chasing. Whenever one lost another, some other character would step in and conveniently give away the new location for no plausible reason. This didn't take place within a small town or even large city, but across countries and oceans. Yet there seemed no safe place to hide.

This is really two stories in one, with a back-and-forth switch to an event unraveling during the war in 1945. This historical aspect is really the only part I enjoyed. That being said, I think it was too much. While I respect the author's ambition, this was not simple flashbacks in order to provide history. This was a complete novel on its own, with its own characters, motivations, and plot. Even though the issues from the past entered into the present day story, the transitions felt disjointed, as if I was reading a historical novel at one moment and a modern adventure the next.

I have no doubt that the author put a lot of time and effort into researching this story. And the narrative style of her writing is well done and easy to read. I just could not find anything more than that to appreciate about this book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 way too much Deus ex machina 11 mai 2014
Par Carol M. Fish - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book has lots of action, but in order to pull it off virtually every situation is resolved using Deus ex machina like contrivances. I would also say the the portrayal of a 93 year old with as much energy and wit as is presented in "Peewee" is hard to accept as possible. I also found this elderly man's constant wearing of a bright red hat while he is trying to evade capture as to be so stupid that it wrecks the story. Be aware that this is apparently not the 1st book in a series and there is a lot of backstory presented that might ruin reading of this prior book or books.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 an insult to Filipino and Thai women 10 mai 2014
Par Oggi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I find this mediocre book insulting to Filipino and Thai women. The Filipino girls are described as "submissive" unlike strong American women, and Thai girls are giggling airheads with no fashion sense. The author got lots of things wrong about the Philippines. It's as though she saw the Philippines and the natives through the eyes of a tourist and nothing more. Maybe she never went there, never met actual Filipino women, and just "read" about them in books and magazines. Her writing style is also repetitive. How many times must she mention her iPhone and Irv's dentures? I can forgive her for that but the story and characters are total rip-off of the book GOLD WARRIORS written by Sterling and Peggy Seagrave, complete with a Norwegian psychic. Really Ms. Kling. No imagination whatsoever. But the most ignorant thing she included in the book and made me rate it a 1-star was the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos being a guerilla fighting the Japanese. No, he wasn't' and it was already proven a long time ago.

A terrific storyline, good characterization. My kind of modern day sea story. Plenty of action, just a bit of romance. Well written, well worth reading.
