Bed of Bones (Sloane Monroe Book 5) (English Edition) Reviews
Alles beginnt im Sommer 1956 mit der Geschichte zweier Jungen, von denen einer in einen alten Minenschacht fällt und stirbt. Bei der verzweifelten Suche nach ihm, werden 7 tote Frauen gefunden.Ausgerechnet diese Geschichte verfilmt eine junge Regisseurin in ihrer Arbeit, was dazu führt, dass es prompt ein Attentat bei der Erstsendung des Filmes gibt. Das Kino fliegt in die Luft.In ihm sitzt auch Sloane's Freund, der schwerverletzt gerade noch überlebt. Sein Leibwächter überlebt leider nicht.Natürlich muss Sloane der Sache auf den Grund gehen. Denn es verschwinden wieder Frauen in der Gegend und in der Nähe des verschlossenen Minenschachtes werden ihre Leichen gefunden.Ein Serienmörder geht um, den Sloane unbedingt stellen will...Wieder ein handfester Band um die Privatdetektivin Sloane Monroe, der wieder mit Spannung und einer unglaublichen Geschichte glänzt. Einer Geschichte, die die Vergangenheit auf den Kopf stellt, Sloane's Beziehung zu Giovanni dauerhaft ändert und einen neuen Mann näher an sie heranbringt.Wie schon die vorherigen Bände habe ich die Geschichte genossen, da Sloane einfach eine Klassefrau ist. Die Story wieder einmal sehr spannend war, und ich bis kurz vor Schluss nicht ahnte, wer der Mörder in der Vergangenheit (also zu Zeiten der beiden Jungs) und der in der Gegenwart gewesen ist.Auch der 5. Band dieser Serie ist genauso gut wie die Vorgänger. Daher hab ich mir auch den Nachfolgeband gegönnt.
I want to like this book. It's my first by this author, and I doubt I'll buy more. I'm glad this was $.99. I feel it's poorly written. I'm not sure how it got past an editor. The author uses odd expressions that don't make sense ("One by one my street became quiet again" or "I felt like a parrot. Press record and pull the string") Her subjects/verbs don't always agree, the main character talks like a teenager, the teenage character is way over the top in the irritating category. I finished it because I wanted to know how it ended. The answer is - it ended abruptly. Fortunately, it's a quick read and I didn't lose too many hours.
Disjointed and fragmented. Sketchy character development and limping plot. Monroe never developed out of two dimensions and most of the other forgettable people stayed flat.It was as if the author felt she had to use every dramatic device she had before she forgot about them.Entirely forgettable.
This book started out pretty good and gets your interest (In the past). Then after those few pages you speed ahead to the present and are introduced to Sloane. From that point on it is a very boring read thru to about 50% of the book where it finally can ties into the beginning of the book (the past). This is where I am right now.....if the book gets boring again..I will read the last chapter to see how it ends and never buy another Sloane book again.
Okay but left me hanging. First book I read was better and don't think I will invest time in another. Sloane is getting a little dark and unbelievable. Can't quite put my finger on it but from time to time her reactions leave me thinking "really?" They just don't match the situation. Maybe she needs to be a little less complex and not so cynical about everything and everyone.
I'm not sure if I read the same book as some of the 5 star raters. I found this book to be simplistic and childishly written. Some of the characters were so annoying, including Sloane herself, that I wanted to yell at them sometimes. The teenager was horrid, and I don't enjoy reading about horrid teenagers unless I bought a book about them (which I never do). Sloane is so full of herself that it's like eating sugar; hard to swallow. I haven't read any other books by this author, and bought this because it was on special, but there is nothing special about it. It goes into great detail about some things that have nothing important to do with the plot, such as the contents of her refrigerator. The adjectives used to describe things were also more along the lines of a romance novel - lustrous hair, strong but slender build. I hung in there just to see how it ended, and I did enjoy the twist at the end, but one reviewer said there were twists and turns every moment, and that's just not true. Also, is "on line" now as accepted as "in line", as in she waited on line versus she waited in line? Made me shudder. Too much hurry then wait...too much that the Sloane character did without any help, as if the police and FBI were just twiddling their thumbs, therefore, not too believable. i won't be buying any more of her books.
