Surprisingly Strong Ending
May 20, 2011
This book is worth reading for the third act, which is highly suspenseful and contains a superb twist.
Getting there is somewhat more problematic. There are times when credulity is strained. For instance, there's a murky character named Buck who appears somewhere near the beginning of the book. Even the author doesn't seem to know what to do with him and quickly gives him the axe.
This novel screams out for a strong editor. For while it's highly entertaining and completely credible in places, the story is often undercut by awkward passages and plot lines.
There's a terrific novel hidden somewhere in these pages. Sadly, A TOUCH OF REVENGE reads like an early draft in places.
