Resenhas

Blame by Jeff Abbott is a uniquely plotted psychological thriller. It’s filled with suspense, a neighborhood full of people keeping secrets, and a lot of suspicion. The deeper I got into this book, the less characters I trusted. Everyone was a suspect!

We meet Jane Norton two years after her car accident that left her neighborhood best friend, David, tragically dead. Jane has amnesia that wiped her memory for the three years prior to the accident. She has to relearn so many things about herself and the people surrounding her. She gets reacquainted with her newer friends and has to be re-told that her father died.

Initially, people are sympathetic to Jane’s struggles. Once what appears to be a suicide note written by Jane is revealed, almost everyone turns against her. She decides to take measures into her own hands to determine what happened the night of the accident. This move takes the story on an adventure. One that will reveal who Jane can trust and those she shouldn’t.

I purchased the audiobook of Blame from Audible. Good narration by the cast of Bailey Carr, Lauren Fortgang, Greg Tremblay, and Vanessa Johnson.

I have photos and additional information that I'm unable to include here. It can all be found on my blog, in the link below.

I'm not usually a spy/covert operations reader, but this book had me fully immersed within a few chapters.

I didn't realise at the time this book is #^ in a series, but not having read the previous 5 did not spoil my enjoyment of this book. The way in which the Author tackled this genre, made it easy to read and it wasn't bogged down with all techno speak this kind of novel can sometimes have.

I started reading this and seemed to go on and nothing was happening. I decided to read until the first murder and then quit. It took off and there were a lot of twists and turns I did not expect. I did not figure out who the murderer was until revealed. I actually enjoyed the story.

Jordan Poteet and his pals are up in a tree house determined to ride out Hurricane Althea. A tornado comes and the boys go running for shelter. After it is over, the boys find a body of a young girl. Fast forward to present day and they are all adults. One of the men is murdered. The following day another of the group dies in a shooting. Jordan, a librarian goes into investigative mode. Junebug, the police chief and boyfriend of Jordan's sister is shot at and then hospitalized. Are all these incidents related? And do they all relate back to that long ago day when they found the body of Rennie Clifton?… (mais)

Downfall moves our hero, Sam Capra, away from the story that has dominated the first two books into new adventures with some level of success. The good: the story features a villain with a plan that is both high-enough stakes to matter without being so over the top evil that it strains your credulity too much. The bad: the ending didn't entirely make sense to me.
