Two Complete Stand-Alone Novels - Each Book Ends with No Cliffhangers; Beware the Profanities, But Enjoy the Suspense...
on February 16, 2018
I recently began prefacing my reviews with an apt quote from one of my reference books. Today, though, I am in an ironic mood, so I will slip in a more humorous statement:
I think when the full horror of being fifty hits you, you should stay home and have a good cry.
Demakis, Joseph. The Ultimate Book of Quotations (p. 3). Unknown. Kindle Edition.
Now, on to my review of the boxed set of two books. “Snatched leads off with what originally was a series of three books in the series, “Missing.” It then is followed by three books in the series “Deadly Webs.”
If you had purchased only the first book in either series, you likely would have been upset to find each of the first two books in either series ended with cliffhangers. You also may have been disappointed by the language, as profanity is a bit excessive.
Other than the two above points, however, James Hunt is a natural at spinning yarns of suspense with the occasional twist that captures your interest and keeps you, or me at least, turning the pages. A glance at the excerpt below may pique your curiosity.
WHY PURCHASE? Two complete, stand-alone novels of some 750 pages is a bargain at any price south of $5, but free is a no-brainer. Unless you abhor excess profanity.
Four stars out of five.
