    Kindle Edition´ Badlands Kindle ´ badlands mobile, Badlands KindleFirst off I read this book under its original title BadlandsSecond this book though engaging well written and filled with 'stuff' going on is very similar to the first three books written by Mr Montanari in thatPhiladelphia detectives Balzano and Byrne partnered together again are in search of a serial killer who after killing his victims poses them in various ways In this case the victims are put into position according to a series of magic tricks Yes the killer is the son of a famous magicianThis is no spoiler happens early on and we are treated once again to the brief thoughts and musings of the killer himself Now I know this is a novel and it needs to be interesting engaging filled with strings of evidence which take us here and there; however there is a formula at work here serial killers who go to elaborate lengths to stage their victims in a certain way and I'm getting just a little bit tired of it Maybe I'm reading too many of Mr Montanari's books in a row

    Kindle Edition´ Badlands Kindle ´ badlands mobile, Badlands KindleLet me begin with two points1 A lot of modern American thrillers read like a film script rendered into prose The chapters are short so that they cut uickly from one place of action to another much as a movie would do Further chapters tend to be very image and motivation focused there’s no real depth to them – much like an individual scene played out on the big screen Now I like books that are like books It’s a very different medium from cinema one in which you can create much substance and explore an internal life in a way no film would touch without reams of voiceover As such if a book is just aping the cinema then I can’t help thinking it’ll be easier to wait until the DVD comes out2 American serial killer novels – certainly since ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ – greatly enjoy the serial killer as ‘Genius’ I guess there's less scope for huge dramatic tension

    Kindle Edition´ Badlands Kindle ´ badlands mobile, Badlands KindleAn excellent police procedural involving sleight of hand magic and games The setting is familiar to me so that was fun The killer is the son of a magician who lives in an old mansion where he maintains a passion for puzzles and murder All of the clues point to a puzzle maniac An expert in disguise he preys on runaway girls whom he lures into the hidden passageways of the old house where he fails to understand why they don’t appreciate his ministrations before he kills sacrifices really them as part of his Seven WondersDetectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balazano are competent and what begins as the investigation of a cold case turns into a very hot one indeed The gradual uncovering of geographical clues and fitting them together into a tangram was clever The partners work well together even with their own demons and it was refreshing to have partners of the opposite sex who d

    Kindle Edition´ Badlands Kindle ´ badlands mobile, Badlands KindleI like Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano In fact I think that of all the old cliché male senior in rank and age and female sexy and feisty cop teams these are the best Add to that Richard Montanari's gruesome writing and I'm in

    Kindle Edition´ Badlands Kindle ´ badlands mobile, Badlands KindleFourth book in the series because I wanted a fast and easy read There are another four books in the series but this is probably the last one for me They are all pretty much the same if you exchange the shtick of serial killer This one has a fetish for magic tricks There isn't much explan

    Kindle Edition´ Badlands Kindle ´ badlands mobile, Badlands KindlePROTAGONISTS Detectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica BalzanoSETTING PhiladelphiaRATING 40One of the trends of the past several years has been a focus on the serial killer as the villain in crime fiction offerings At first uniue the device has become overdone and freuently ineffective It's almost the easy way out for an author to create a despicable character who does horrendous things and call that a mystery As a result I've become pretty turned off by the whole serial killer thing Therefore you can imagine my dismay when I picked up Badlands and found the Prologue to be told from the point of view of a serial killer Not a very promising start for me—but I'm pleased to say that my initial negative reaction was uickly overcome once the narrative progr
