Beschreibung

Adrian Mole is thirty-four and three quarters, almost officially middle-aged, when Mr Blair tells Parliament that Weapons of Mass Destruction can be deployed in forty-five minutes and can reach Cyprus. Adrian is worried that he might not get a refund on his holiday. But that's not all that is bothering him. There's his odd girlfriend Marigold who has become distressingly New Age. And his son Glenn who is in Deepcut Barracks. Would Mr Blair have been quite so keen if it had been his son manning a roadblock?

Über den Autor

Sue Townsend was born in Leicester, England, in 1946. Despite not learning to read until the age of eight, leaving school at fifteen with no qualifications, and having three children by the time she was in her mid-twenties, she managed to be very well read. Townsend wrote secretly for twenty years, and after joining a writers’ group at the Phoenix Theatre, Leicester, she won a Thames Television Award for her first play, Womberang, and became a professional playwright and novelist. Following the publication of The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13¾, she continued to make the nation laugh and prick its conscience with seven more volumes of Adrian’s diaries, five popular novels—including The Queen and I, Number Ten, and The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year—and numerous well-received plays. Townsend passed away in 2014 at the age of sixty-eight, and remains widely regarded as Britain’s favorite comic writer.

    Enough, Mr. Deaver. This is the second book where Amelia gets fooled. If it happens a third time, you've either got no imagination or a problem with women police officers.
  • (3/5)
    Not quite as good as the others in the series, but not bad.
  • (3/5)
    too long and drawn out...still a good read.
  • (3/5)
    A fast paced read......a bit predictable.
  • (5/5)
    Another great mystery in the so far excellent series. Serial killer, human smuggler, the Ghost - brings a cargo of a few dozen Chinese illegal immigrants to the shore of New York City. But just before reaching land, he's tracked by the Coast Guard, so he blows up the ship just before making his escape. About a dozen immigrants escape as well, so the Ghost must catch and kill them all before they blow his scheme and identity. As usual, with a lot of shrewd deduction on the barest shreds of evidence, with the help of a very likeable and resourceful Chinese detective Sonny Li, who was undercover as one of the immigrants, Lincoln and Amelia nab their man.

    This is the first Jeffery Deaver novel I have read, and I was happy with it. It might not have been the most suspenseful thriller I have ever read, but it was a good mystery. I am looking forward to reading more.
  • (4/5)
    A great thriller with an unexpected twist.
  • (4/5)
    Another thriller with lots of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing - although I did begin did guess the true identity of The Ghost a few pages before it was announced, but this did not diminish my enjoyment of the book, especially as the final dénouement explained a major element of the plot which needed further explanation.
  • (3/5)
    Not bad. There were a few leaps of faith in here but overall I liked it.
  • (5/5)
    Tone of language: Deadly realistic tempered by philosophical musings Characters: At the top of their game, savvy and focused Plot twists: Clever maneuvers countered by brillliant deductions and a few surprising switched identities Pace: Unrelenting, ruthless Values: Embrace your limitations and accept the challenges Sexuality: Mostly sane, stable committed relationships. Background research: Chinese culture, spinal cord injury, forensics, deep sea diving Objectionable to any group: Chinese, the FBI Target audience: Everyone Flaws: One major flaw concerning why the smuggler would kill the immigrants on the boat instead of simply escaping from the boat is resolved at the end.

    At first I didn't think I would like this one as much as The Empty Chair, but I was wrong. Jeffery Deaver once again creates a fabulous tale starring Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs--a quadraplegic and a woman with a painful case of chronic arthritis--who pair up time and again as an amazing team.I'll be looking for more Lincoln Rhyme/Amelia Sachs novels by Mr. Deaver.
  • (3/5)
    Very entertaining if overlong. I whizzed through this 400-page thriller in a matter of 3 days. I doubt I’ll actively look for more Deaver, but, if he’s on the shelf when I’m looking for a beach read, then I might just pick up another.

    A Lincoln Rhyme story - sequel to "The Bone Collector" which was made into a film starring Denzel (Drool) Washington and Angelina Jolie. This time they're into people smuggling with lots of twists and turns in the plot and I didn't guess the major plot twist until more than half way through (usually I know well within a few pages). I like these books and will have to borrow more.The Human smuggler is Chinese and he scuttles the boat he's bringing from China just as it arrives at the US coast killing almost everyone on board. Some people manage to escape and he starts hunting them down. There's a Chinese cop working with Lincoln and Amelia who is quite cool and interesting, his knowledge and attitude add tremendously to the story.
