Rk Rubinstein Begley s book has two competing lements that don t uite mesh It is a novel about revenge a retired US Marinesuccessful author avenges the death of his beloved high level lawyer uncle by a mega rich client but it is a novel set among the upper crust world that Begley writes about in his other novels The tone derives from the second A Fairly Honourable Defeat element the action from the first There is a clubby old boy feel to it that doesn t mesh with the murderous actions that set the main character into action nor his choice of how he plans to bring down the people responsible for his uncle s death It also has a feel of anarlier age to it probably that of the 1930s say with its assumptions about honorable behavior and family and personal connections I don t mean to disparage honorable behavior but the tone is somewhat at odds with the intent to murder It s a good book but you never have the sense that the central character is in danger nor does he think so so the tension doesn t build as intended When Dana kills the person he means to kill it s like reading about rat xtermination rather than a highly motional act of revengeThe title supports my argument I think And now finally I understand why I got this book for 3 instead of 12 Because it s a terrible book and I shouldn t Elisabeth Shue 135 Success Facts - Everything You Need to Know about Elisabeth Shue even have paid the 3 for itIt s supposed to be about pointless violence revenge and corruption among rich Americans well at least that s what the author says But really just from reading it s clear that the book isn t really about much of anything This is bullshit too her replied and you re taking way too much of my time Once again what do you wantI want you to send this guy to me Send him to kill me because I m going to kill him instead and that is what I want I want to kill him I want to watch him die And you better be uick There are only so many days before I release the stuff I have to the government Jack Danax military successful author and real contender for Most Boring Main Character Imaginable is kind of sad when his uncle a successful lawyer The Man Without a Face everyone in this book is successful and rich and smart commits suicide and suspects it wasn t really a suicide at all The plot goes on from there pretty much in the way you dxpect and nothing unexpected ver happens You might think there s some mystery Who could ve killed the uncle And why but there really isn t It s all pretty clear almost immediately The characters are flat and one dimensional and their realtionships to ach other are kept as simple as possible There s good people and there s bad people and the good people are all Jacks s friends and completely interchangeable They just do whatever he needs them to do Jack and Kerry s relationship is particularly bad because the author tries so hard to make you believe they truly love Gone (Gone, each other They ve met once or twice at parties They meet again after Jack s uncle has died They fall in love immediately After a week of dating Jack loves her than anything decides to marry her and plans to leave herverything in his will YA romance is nothing compared to thisThe writing is also uh interesting For some stylistic reason the author decided to use no uotation marks or any other sign when someone is speaking and when not The narrator parts indirect speech and direct speech just merge together and Threads Of The Shroud everything andveryone sounds All Seated on the Ground exactly the same The fact that the book also has a 1st person narrator doesn t really improve thingsither Is he speaking Thinking Wait who s speaking now Who knows And who caresThis felt like it was written based on one 1 vague plot idea and in a matter of 2 weeks and if it wasn t actually that s Untitled. even worseview spoilerAlso and this might just be me but Jack has a really weird attitude towards contract killers If someone hired an assassin to murder your uncle wouldn t you mainly blame the guy who hired the assassin Isn t it kind of his fault in the first place Jack is weirdly fixated on gettingven with the guy who was just doing his job okay an awful terrible job but still hide spoiler.
