    One thought on “The Silent Pool”

    1. Erasmus Jones returned from Afghanistan haunted by demons which caused his marriage to Miranda to collapse. When she moved to Liverpool with his six year old daughter, Abby, he felt he had no choice but to follow them. Erasmus is attempting to retrain as a lawyer, but the much needed training contract to complete his studies is proving elusive and so he is currently working partly as a P.I. When he is asked by his friend Dan Trent to look into the disappearance of a man called Stephen Francis, w [...]

    2. **full version posted on my blog, Avid Reader**Plot: So, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know I love love LOVE crime/mystery books, but there are few authors who can pull off a really good crime/mystery plot well *cough James Patterson and Robert Galbraith/JK Rowling cough* so, as usual, I was wary of what would happen and if the plot would actually be good and I wouldn’t figure out ‘who dunit?’ earlier than I meant to. Thankfully, this did not disappoint at all! There were [...]

    3. Although this was a crime story, for me the more interesting aspect of this book was the Lightspeed Intracom sub-plot.The company agrees to finance an election if they are allowed to influence the curriculum in schools. Intracom has produced the search engine software Lightspeed, which is already installed on nearly 70% of existing laptops/computers. The search engine regulates what the searcher sees, ergo defining and controlling their information gathering and the results of their info request [...]

    4. Tedious at times, I thought that it was quite predictable in several areas - especially who the guy was who asks a specific question numerous times through the book. Unbelievable in a number of areas - especially when two people jumped 50 feet out of a building and both survived with virtually no injuries. I'm not really a total perfectionist, but there were numerous spelling mistakes and grammatical areas. I found them annoying, distracting and unnecessary - virtually all other books I have rea [...]

    5. Rating 3.5/5Having recently relocated to Liverpool, Erasmus Jones takes on a job for a law firm looking for Stephen who has disappeared suddenly. What starts out as a seemingly easy task very quickly becomes dangerous and complex, as Erasmus slowly begins to connect the man he is looking for and a series of other deaths and murders. Unsure of whom he can trust and how to find the truth when those involved aren’t being honest with him, he finds himself embroiled in not just finding the missing [...]

    6. This is a difficult book to review. It has some brilliant plot lines, plenty of tension, varying levels of graphic violence (if you are like me and hate eyes beware!!! Ewwwww!) all of which kept me engrossed. I really liked the main character, Erasmus he has been in war zones, returned to Liverpool and is now a PI. The case he is working on takes him in search of a missing man but there is obviously a lot more involved than he at first anticipates.Then comes the section involving the Mayor who [...]

    7. An intriguing and different, action packed and fast paced thriller. The setting of Liverpool is so well described you feel like you're it in it, and the characters are well developed and believable. The book goes beyond entertainment, asking how far governments are prepared to go and what limits, if any, religious extremists will go to in their attempts to control people. This important issue is wrapped around by a mystery, loaded with delicious plot twists and turns.Upon Erasmus Jones' return f [...]

    8. This is a bit of a difficult book to review for me. There were points in the story when I felt that the pacing was a bit laboured and other times when it fair cantered along. And that meant that I didn't find the story as a whole to be one that I could easily immerse myself in.That said, it was, at its core, a basically decent plotline. The religious element was interesting and added an extra dimension to the tale, as well as giving several potential bad guys to tilt at.Erasmus is a bit of a con [...]

    9. I thoroughly enjoyed this highly topical and intriguing mixture of political thriller, detective story and slightly alternate (but uncomfortably plausible) reality. The characters are well-observed and three dimensional and there are sub-plots and twists woven throughout the story, leading to a satisfyingly meaty read.The author's knowledge and love of Liverpool shines through the book and makes the city an important character in its own right, whilst avoiding lazy stereotypes and clichés. I he [...]

    10. Liked a lot about this book. However, heroes who carry on regardless despite severe injuries turn me right off. I also knew pretty early on who the killer was

    11. A brilliant piece of fast-moving action. A real page turner which keeps you wanting to know more all the way through. Intelligent and exciting. A very good read.
