Présentation de l'éditeur

“A master of no-nonsense, good, old-fashioned suspense….Littered with surprises from start to finish, Don’t Look Twice offers the perfect blend of menace and normality.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Venetian Betrayal

 

Don’t Look Twice, the third solo effort—and third consecutive New York Times bestseller—from Andrew Gross, author of The Blue Zone and The Dark Tide, brings back Detective Ty Hauck and ensnares him in a lethal maze of cover-up and corruption. Gross, who co-wrote several bestsellers with suspense superstar James Patterson, soars to new heights with his intrepid action hero Hauck—whom the Connecticut Post calls, “a Jack Reacher with heart.”

Quatrième de couverture

In this dramatic new novel following the bestselling The Dark Tide, a drive-by shooting rocks the posh suburb of Greenwich, Connecticut, and an innocent bystander is left dead.

Detective Ty Hauck plunges into what seems like a vicious case of retribution and follows the trail to a sinister gambling scheme at an upstate casino. Until Annie Fletcher, a young restaurateur in the midst of rebuilding her life, witnesses something she shouldn't have—and immediately runs to him with what she knows. Suddenly, Hauck is pulled into a rising storm far greater than it first appeared—a storm wide enough to encompass corruption inside Greenwich's circle of wealthy and powerful citizens. And punishing enough to consume Hauck's own family, and tear brothers apart forever . . . if it doesn't kill them first.

Don't Look Twice is a gripping story of profiteering on an international scale and an emotionally resonant domestic thriller from one of the hottest new talents in suspense fiction.

It's an exciting time to be listening to audio books - just when you think they can't get any better they do. Christian Hoff's narration of Don't Look Twice is a prime example.

An award winning stage actor, Tony Award for "Jersey Boys," Drama Desk Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award, Hoff brings a wealth of talent to this reading. He has voiced more than 200 characters for an audio book which, by the way, is a world record. Hoff's television credits are numerous (Ugly Betty, ER, etc).

Now, this acclaimed actor brings his stage and screen experience to a can't-stop-listening-to narration of this artfully plotted, suspense laden thriller by Andrew Gross.

Don't Look Twice begins in a disarmingly peaceful manner as Connecticut Detective Ty Hauck prepares for time with his daughter. They stop by a gas station convenience store to buy some groceries when they are suddenly the victims of a drive-by shooting. The girl is unhurt, Hauck is wounded and a federal prosecutor is killed.

Random violence? Don't believe it for a minute when Gross is writing the story. Hauck gets more than he suspected or bargained for as he investigates - in fact, more than he ever wanted to know.

I was not a big fan of Andrew Gross's first two novels, but I think his third one qualifies as a considerable improvement. DON'T LOOK TWICE is an interesting, well-plotted murder mystery.

Andrew Gross used to be a co-writer for James Patterson, and he writes this book in the Patterson style. The book contains a lot of short chapters, and is very fast paced and action-oriented. Unlike Patterson, however, Gross invests sizable energy into his characterization, so all the main characters seem more like flesh-and-blood human beings, as opposed to the superheroes and supervillains that dominate Patterson's work.

DON'T LOOK TWICE is not an over-the-top, high-concept thriller. It is instead structured more like a whodunnit, and I think it works well at that level. If this novel has a major flaw, it's the sheer predictability of some of its plot twists. It's not very difficult to figure out who the guilty culprits are, which diminishes the suspense level of the storyline. This book also has some political content near the end, and I wouldn't recommend this book to a hardcore Republican for that reason.

Overall, DON'T LOOK TWICE is an enjoyable diversion, and reads better than most of the James Patterson books I've read over the past several years. If you like Patterson, it's worth a try.

HASH(0x8f995330) étoiles sur 5 Murder, greed and corruption in Greenwich... 8 mars 2009
Par Denise Crawford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This novel was a fun page turner that kept me guessing most of the way through. The plot has some depth and the story was interesting even though the characters were quite stereotypical of thrillers involving detectives, murder, gambling, crooked government and the requisite love interest. Along the way is the building body count, and the reader learns quickly that it's dangerous to trust anyone involved in the case.

This was the second book in a series featuring Lt. Ty Hauck and I did not read the former, The Dark Tide, so am basing my analysis of the character on this novel only. He's the typical man without a family - estranged from an ex -- and his current love interest is lukewarm, so he's the solitary voice of truth and justice fighting against the rich and powerful. This type of character has become a cliché of detective novels - probably because it works. It would be hard for a man with any type of family or home life to rarely sleep, eat or interact with anyone but those involved in the case. He has a daughter, brother and father and those all make brief appearances in the story but his relationships are never fully fleshed out. The reader doesn't really get to know Ty although he certainly seems to have a conscience even as he displays a lapse or two in judgment that almost compromises the investigation.

All in all -- an entertaining, if somewhat convoluted, tale of murder, greed, and corruption. I will most likely read another installment in this series in the future.

Here we go, a novel with a complex and interesting plot that the author lays out and explains in a reasonable length of time. Too many novels are painful exercises in inordinate detail and background that make you think you should be taking notes to remember it all.

You get into it quickly, the story is compelling, there is entertainment and, sadly, an end. Does this mean the book is "light" or cheats you with too few words? No, it means it is good and fun to read, exciting and you don't want to put it down just because you have an obligation or it is late.

It takes skill to lay down a complex plot and situation that doesn't get in the way of the story. Gross does this very well, with a refreshing ease and clarity. Very impressive and recommended for anyone who wants a little fun in their reading while still being engaged in the subject.

My wife, a native Spanish speaker, found errors in the Spanish. She always does(roll-eyes emoticon). The errors were confined to the first half of the book for some reason. Still, she loved it and also recommends five stars.

HASH(0x8f87d5c4) étoiles sur 5 Not worth the effort 7 avril 2009

This novel really started out as a winner, I couldn't put it down, however the further I got into it, it became boring, twisted without reason and multiple characters that added little to the story. It was a bunch of uncompleted circles and seemed to try too hard to pull it all together and weave the ends into a story that made any sense. It appeared that the author was trying too hard. I did not enjoy this book.

Lieutenant Ty Hauck returns in this sequel to "The Dark Tide" with a bang. It has been a year since those events and much has changed. Hauck has become something of a media darling. His relationship with Karen has become increasingly problematic far beyond the different worlds they inhabit. Then, there is his 13 year old daughter, Jessie who is moving into adolescence and Ty is experiencing the culture shock that hits all fathers. He has all that and a lot more on his mind on a routine Saturday morning when he stops to pick up a few things at the local Exxon station.

A routine morning until the gunman, seemingly targeting Ty Hauck at first, opens fire sending bullets into the Exxon station. In the aftermath, while Jessie and Ty survive, the man in line behind them was shot twice in the chest and killed. The dead man was a federal prosecutor by the name of David Sanger working out of Hartford, Connecticut. Ty and his team from the Violent Crimes Unit of the Greenwich Police will soon be working a wide ranging investigation that leads far from the initial shooting with the help and hindrance of the FBI.

Experience has shown that the more strident blurbs on a book or in the promotional copy, the weaker the book and that is certainly the case here. Following the same tired formula of the previous book with this character, this is another paint by the numbers thriller despite the promising beginning. It doesn't take too long to meet the newest vulnerable widow who had no idea her husband had hundreds of thousands of dollars in a secret account. Ty Hauck is, of course, attracted to her and her family while the last widow he romanced seems to be moving on with her life. There are other comparisons but it becomes tedious to list all the way this book follows the same format.

Formulaic with its clichéd and shallow characters, teasers at the end of each very short chapter, frantic pacing encouraging readers to ignore the shallowness of this extended short story, the resulting read shows virtually zero improvement over the previous book. Fans of the author's work as co-author to James Patterson through a number of novels may appreciate this read. Those looking for something beyond clichéd, shallow characters and an actual story of any depth, will not.
