The Forgotten: A Jon Dough Thriller written by Kevin Macklin was my first read by this author, I was glad to have discovered him because I feel like we need more black males writing in this genre. I dove into the book unjudging just waiting to see how the story would unfold and I was not disappointed. Kevin hooked me in from the very first paragraph. These truly are my types of books, the protagonists with a shaded past that lives by his own set of rules and has a moral code that he abides by no matter the outcome.
Overall it was a decent read, the only downfall for me as a reader was that I didn't know the race of the title character. Perhaps I overlooked that part or read too fast I don't remember him being described. I suppose it doesn't matter to some readers but for me, it took something away from the story.
Would I read another of Kevin's titles in the Jon Dough series? Most definitely! And I suggest others that are not hip to him do the same.
Scar Tissue by Trace Conger the 2nd book in the Mr. Finn title was really good! It is the 2nd title that I've read by this author and it did not disappoint. It started off a bit slow for my taste but as it moved on I understood why the author took the pace that took for the story. I really enjoyed it, now I'm off to read the third installment! Happy Reading.
This is my first read by this author and I was not impressed. It wasn't horrible, I finished the whole book, yet it wasn't very impressive either. I liked the fact that it went straight into action from the beginning. I thought that I may have liked the characters but I never got to know any of them, not even the main protagonist. The plot and the characters needed to be fleshed out more. Reading this was like watching an action movie, sure I love witty one-liners, shooting, and stuff blowing up but if you are looking for a plot driven story line you won't find it here.
