Smashwords book reviews by Gordon Tatler

  • Black Mountain Affair on May 18, 2012

    Blood thirsty, but a great read. I really couldn'lt put it down.
  • Election Day on June 04, 2012

    It is a really great read. I could hardly tear myself away from it. I'm sure I shall read it again and again.
  • The Son of Man on June 17, 2012

    It seems absolutely and utterly stupid but I just could not put it down ! So unbelievable, so badly written, but boy what a read.

    A good story spoiled by the grammatical errors in translation. Really needs a complete edit by an English proof reader.

    I came across this book after my Doctor had problems with my EKG (ECG ad it is called in the UK) and could not resist reading it. Although set in 1930's America I found it a fabulously good read right from page one, and I just could not put it down until I finished it. Absolutely fascinating early analysis of EKG's, and a good, fast moving tale. Great stuff. Really is a brilliant book.
  • The Shroud on Oct. 25, 2012

    Not an original idea - others have used the DNA/Shroud theme, but this one has a lovely twist in the tale which had me rocking with laughter. Good read. Couldn't put it down.
  • Dead End on Oct. 25, 2012

    A good read, but a disappointing ending.

    Read the free 20% version. Couldn't put it down. Bought the full version, and read the whole thing in one day. Great tale with two strands to keep track of part way through. A lot of people might be surprised at the finale, but I had my suspicions by chapter 15 - there are 27 chapters - and was certain by chapter 24. And I was right ! Absolutely riveting book. BUY IT !
  • Dead End on Oct. 29, 2012

    The solution was a bit obvious fairly early in the book. However, it is a jolly good read.

    I was put off even before reading chapter one. The formatting is absolutely terrible. The chapter index is filled with blank spaces, and there are no page trows between chapters once reading is begun. NEEDS A FULL OVERHAUL.

    A fascinating tale, fast paced, with lots of twists and turns, particularly in the final few pages. Altogether a great read.

    Having now read the book I have to say that it was the most brilliant fun read that I have had in years. A most unbelievable plot started slowly, then gathered to a furious pace with plenty of side turnings, and ended with just a nice little sting in the tale. BRILLIANT. Well done. I would recommend it to anyone. And now I'm looking forward to reading the other two books in the trilogy.

    Absolutely brilliant. What a well written tale. Almost ever page ha a new e vent - and it was not until the las but one chapter that I finally guessed the solution to several mysteries. I would recommend it to everyone, and I can't wait for the next book in the series.
  • Deniable Assets (Out of the East) on May 06, 2013

    An exciting book with a great storyline. A great read, I just couldn't put it down. Just a bit spoilt by the innumerable grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. Now to the second book in the series 'Hostages' which I am sure will follow on the excitement.
