THE PICTURE KILLS
By Ian Bull
Murder, rape, vengeance
One chapter is from the standpoint of the female protagonist, a new movie star, and the next chapter would be from the standpoint of the male protagonist, Stephan, an ex-ranger who now makes his living by photographing as a paparazzi. Ordinarily this would make a story easier to read, but this is a story in which there are so many new characters in each chapter and it becomes so convoluted, that the reader can lose sight of the plot.
It is definitely an action story, action in many different ways, even to the extent that a reader wonders if, especially some of the medical procedures, are possible. Of course, since this is fiction, the author can make up anything he wishes. But each chapter is so long, and there is so much action and so many characters that the reader becomes impatient for the chapter to end.
The characters are strong, the scenes are strong and yet there were times when I was bored because the actions were so complex and strung out so far. For readers who simply like to read stories filled with violence and sex, this will be your cup of tea.
I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review.
