The King Tides Reviews
It could have been better.
I really dislike giving bad reviews because I know every writer deserves recognition for putting themselves out here. This book was irritating in the fact that it was so repetitive about every situation. There's no reason to repeat every detail of each person, place, and thing because it takes away from the story. I didn't like the "problem" in this criminal thriller because it seemed too drastic of an effect brought about by an unrealistic cause. Child pornography is n ...more
Over the top laughable cliche after cliche
This book was so bad. It was cliche after cliche. The characters were over the top, Telenovela style. They were also very one dimensional rather than fleshed out. There is our main character who [read in a dramatic voice] is a private investigator who used to be a cop, but now he operates outside of the law and is a loose cannon. He fights for his clients and wants to bring the bad guys to justice.
I kept rolling my eyes and laughing out loud every oth ...more
This is one of those books where it seems the author has taken all those ideas he has had that didn't really fit in the other series he wrote, and jammed them into a new book. There are just a bunch of hackneyed characters and worn out tropes.
I just didn't buy it.
A nice quick detective story. I really enjoyed this one, with the exception of the fact that the investigation involves a child porn storyline. It's not too graphic, so it's fine, but it wouldn't be my first choice if I had known that going in.
I enjoyed mostly the Fort Lauderdale settings and having places I've been to in my new home state. Nice to have an author actually keep things in place. I have seen movies where someone is driving south on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago to get north to the Cuneo Estate in the northern suburbs. And one story recently when a horse ride from Janesville to the Mississippi river took 20 minutes. It takes longer than that by far to drive it in a car. So, thank you, Mr. Swain, for an enjoyable few days.
This book needs to take a few more trips to the editors desk. I thought this book was written by an amateur. I was quite surprised when I found out that this author has written about 20 other books. Does he not read his own writing? Besides the obvious typos, this book is full of cliches and has a ton of useless fluff.
(3). A really decent Amazon Prime freebie. Jon Lancaster is a protagonist who you cannot help but like from page 1. This story is a little crazy, but Jon is so solid, smart and tough that it is easy to go with the flow. When we add Beth Daniel as a co-protagonist it gets a little confusing at times, but Swain does a good job of making it work. I will definitely read the next one in this series. Good stuff.
He has done it again!
I loved all his books and this one is no exception.
Lancaster & Daniels join force to capture pedophiles and serial killers. Their intelligence and tenacity makes them an unforgettable duo. Once started hard to put it down. Great mystery, great plot, smooth writing keeps one turning the pages. Great read.
