Recent Comments "Wildcase"
THIS WAS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS I WASN'T SURE I WOULD LIKE. I WAS GLAD I TOOK THE CHANCE ON THIS BOOK. IT HAD ROMANCE, INTRIQUE AND PLENTY OF TWISTS AND TURNS. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ANYONE THAT WANTS A GOOD BOOK TO READ. IT WILL DEFINITELYKEEP YOU WONDERING WHAT IS GONNA HAPPEN NEXT. IT DEFINITELY DRAWS YOU IN.
Singularly one of the best books I have ever read. Wildcase is a real roller coaster ride that will take you half way around the world in high style. Rail Black is a billionaire problem solver part James Bond and part Casey Ryback. He lives hard, loves hard and kills people. He lives by his own code of honor and protects those he cares about. When two of his friends are brutally murdered in the California desert and the LAPD is keeping the crime quiet he can’t ignore it. His investigation unea [...]
There were some chapters early on that I never did figure out how they fit in the story. It was extremely and graphically violent in places and I am not sure it was always necessary. I liked the character Rail Black, but was never sure why he was investigating and not the authorities. The reasons given in the book just seemed unreal, and to keep murders like that,out of the press for so long I have a lot of trouble buying. I loved the ending.
Wildcase is suspenseful and exciting with just the right mix of action and intrigue. Rail Black is an amazing character and I found the information he imparts throughout the novel fascinating! A highly enjoyable read and I would recommend it to people who are unflinching when the going gets brutal!
Hard to follow
Two gruesome murders, a billionaire with seemingly scores of contacts, the FBI, Chinese, jade tigers, and an historical tale of the hunting and transportation of live tigers, all before page fifty. With Russell’s latest book, this is the beginning of a complex mystery with a slew of interesting, witty, and sometimes dangerous characters coming out of the woodwork at every turn. This one . . . well . . . it’ll drive you wild. Billionaire and ex Delta Force operative Rail Black (isn’t that j [...]
Hard to believe that Neil Russell could develop as a writer so fast, but the second Rail Black saga rapidly surpasses CITY OF WAR for writing, suspense, character development, in addition to murder, mystery, and international intrigue. I second the notion that Russell is unique in his ability to grab the reader with edge of your seat action in the first 5 pages. Rail Black, as an ex-Delta force vet British expat and Hollywood billionaire, reminds me of Paladin in HAVE GUN - WILL TRAVEL - another [...]
A great crime/mystery/suspense novel. It reads so well, I wanted to get to the next chapter to find out what happens. There are exciting scenes filled with action, some romantic scenes and some out of this world less believable events where the author took plenty of artistic liberties. Nevertheless it was well written, clever and intriguing. I would love to read another book starring Rail Black. *I won a copy of this book in a giveaway, thanks to the author and .
His hero, Mr. Black, is a bit fantastic, a la Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt. One can only handle so much steely eyed action. His plots is more interesting than his character, who is literally larger than life and yet oh-so-sensitive. The instant need for sex by every female who meets him is a little annoying as well.
Rail Black is a very wealthy individual and ex-delta force. He becomes is a deadly, tangled affair when two of his friends are horrible tortured and murdered. Along the way he uncovers a human smuggling scheme as he travels from the United States to Europe and Asia to reveal secrets. The body count keeps climbing as do coverups.
Loved the start and most of the roller coaster ride, but the ending seemed rushed. Really nice addition was the historical sections that helped wrap up the ending, but still the ending seemed rushed.
FTC disclosure: I received this book free from hoping I would review it.
Did not finish. The characters were stick figures, particularly the hero, a Mary Sue.
* Copy via First Reads and the author *Good thriller. I enjoyed it somewhat, but there were a lot of characters that I found extremely hard to keep track of.
