Books need work
Reviewed in the United States on December 26, 2016
This is the 8th book I have read by Mr.Carson...I have to say, that in general, they are entertaining stories. I do, however, see plenty of room for improvement. I spent many years in Law Enforcement and my feeling is, if you re going to have a protagonist that is a Law Enforcement Officer, you should have some general idea how it works. Mr. Carson needs to do some research. There is not an honest officer anywhere that would allow himself to be sexually assaulted by a City Council member without charging them immediately....It was pretty obviously just a sexually gratuitous scene. The book could easily have done without that. Detective Wolfe has been so beat up so many times, in real life he would be on medical leave...no one, not even Wolfe, could survive so many severe injuries and still function as an officer. Not to mention that some of his tactics are illegal and he would be on Admin leave, summarily fired if not charged with several felonies, and likely brought up on federal Civil Rights violations. There is also the fact that it is difficult to believe there is so much illegal, dishonest, and subversive politics going on in one small town...I mean, really? Seems it is present in every book. There is also the issue of every heroine being small, with a perfect figure, and for the most part, with big,
perfect, blue or green eyes...is there something in the water? I want to move there if there is.... There is also the issue of frequent grammatical errors. Either spelling errors, or simply the wrong word being used. Most of them are simple mistakes that would be covered in English 101. Yes, these books are Fiction but if the stories continue in the same vein, maybe they should be called Fantasy.
