Early Book - Great Reading but Poor Plot

Would you try another book from Andrew Taylor and/or Simon Shepherd?

I sure would and I have read the entire Roth Trilogy. They are an entirely different matter and are excellent both in performance and in substance.


What was most disappointing about Andrew Taylor???s story?

It was a boring story and I definitely care about the protagonist. While you can have anti-heroic protagonists but you must have some plot hinge to make what happens to them matter.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The reader was excellent. In fact, the only motive I had to keep reading.


Any additional comments?

Try other Andrew Taylor books because he has developed since this first book and is now an outstanding writer.
