    A Bit of a Letdown

    I have have enjoyed the other books in the series but I found this one a bit twee. There were some corny end to chapters. It felt like the character had run out of steam.

    Disappointed

    When Jessica Lyle is kidnapped Max Wolfe is determined to find out why she was a target. Are things as simple as first imagined? #Taken was the first book I’ve read in the Max Wolfe series and I must admit I wasn’t really that impressed. For me a good crime thriller series should have strong and interesting main characters or, failing that, have a really well thought out and complex crime spree to hold my interest. I found Max to be a bit wooden and lacking in personality I’m afraid. I also found the crime plot arc itself to be a little predictable and formulaic – there was no twist or moment to make me go ‘whoa’ at any point. There were also a few moments later in the book where the plot jumps too quickly and made me actually go back to see if I missed a chapter which was confusing. I understand that as I haven’t read any of the previous 5 books I may have missed out on some of the more complex relationships and backstories but this book can easily be read as a standalone piece as it’s more about the crime than the characters. That said, I didn’t understand why the alcoholic boss wasn’t taken to task and questioned more thoroughly in the book, particularly as her drinking problem was mentioned so many times. I also didn’t really understand why the book is called #taken as the hashtag seems to only have been mentioned once in passing. The title, and the inclusion of the hashtag in one sentence of the book seems to be trying to give it a younger edge and perhaps introduce it to a different audience but with no mention of technology or social media in the plot to back it up I was left a little disappointed. Overall I found #Taken to be a disappointing read with wooden main character and formulaic plot. Thank you to NetGalley, Random House UK – Cornerstone & Century for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Exciting

    An exciting and engrossing mystery with authentic characters and dedicated police, hunting for a missing woman and the criminals who took her away. Well written and hard to put down.
