Blackmore's book emphasizes what makes me so excited about the advent of ebooks. Here's a superbly written suspense story by a writer that I feel privileged to discover thanks to the accessibility and affordability of ebooks. It reminded me of Stephen King's "Bachman" books, where the suspense story also enfolds some pensive themes about life and death, and doesn't shy away from humor and more human qualities in the characters. On these counts, The Missing Boatman doesn't disappoint. Like another reviewer noted, I did find the gore a little heavy early on for my tastes, but that quickly takes a back seat to the rest of the story.

I didn't think this was "my kind of book." But I couldn't wait to see how it ended! The beginning set-up of the novel is quite gory in spots (Personal tip for the squeamish: Skim the fight scenes; just find out who is fighting, who wins and who loses! No need to keep count of broken bones.) but humor shines through in other parts of the book. Does anyone NOT come to really LIKE the Boatman? I don't think so. By the end of the book, you know so much more about him that you have to love the old cuss.
