The Dark Tide: Andrew Gross
3 / 5
A readable thriller.
Goodreads Rating: 3.65 / 5
Published: 1st March 2008. Pages: 598. Publisher: William Morrow and Company.
Having read some James Patterson books I was given The Dark Tide because Andrew Gross has wrote some joint novels with Patterson. However, this novel was Gross’s own work, and although the premise for story was a good one it never really captivated me and my assessment of The Dark Tide is that it is a perfectly acceptable read for when you go on holiday and if you fancy some an easy reading thriller.
James Patterson & Mark Pearson
3.75 / 5
A pacy, smooth and brutally thrilling page-turner.
The story is filled with brilliant twists and turns, and it has more tricks up its sleeve than any magician, with misdirections, red herrings and cliffhangers aplenty. The story starts off as a simple kidnapping with ransom demands, but quickly becomes something that has massive consequences if Dan Carter and Private’s London branch do not crack the case.
James Patterson & Maxine Paetro
3.5 / 5
Quick-paced and very readable.
James Morgan, a former marine copter pilot during the war in Afghanistan, is entrusted with responsibility of a private investigation company, Private, started by his father.
