A great book A must read.
Judgment Tramp was a fun read right from the beginning Suspenseful with touches of humor What I loved about the characters in this book was how real they seemed The hero, Eb MacLean, is a veteran struggling with real issues and relationships a real guy Unlike most thrillers in which the male protagonist is self assured and the center of the book, the author brings Eb s uncertainties right into the open making him likable and someone the reader can relate to, and surrounds him with strong female [...]
While I prefer my thrillers to have some sort of underlying speculative element making the reader question things from the first page e.g Preston Child, Rollins , I was pulled in immediately by Judgment Tramp The main character, Eb, was anything but perfect and certainly not overly confident in his ability to do things He has problems, and those problems act almost as a third antagonist, a weight that keeps him down I found his character and the lead female characters, as well engaging, sometime [...]
This book could be considered a mixture of Family Drama and mystery thriller.Eb is confronted by his family s past as he tries to understand why his sister s vehicle has been bombed and he has been set up as the patsy While his sister wasn t in the vehicle at the time, a friend of hers was blown up Will Eb find the truth or will the web of lies keep him from saving the people he loves This is the only book I have read so far in this series, so it was almost like coming into the middle of a movie [...]
I received this book as a Free Friday selection in March, 2012 at WLC Judgement Tramp was a good read It is a well written, fast paced, action adventure with intrigue and a dash of romance and lust Along the way Eb discovers that many things are not what they seem to be he has been lied to over and over again and he discovers that even his family ties are not what he thought they were The plot had surprising twists and turns to the very end.I liked Eb Maclean s character He is far from perfect h [...]
A man who is shuttled around his life by the women who surround him describes main character Eb Maclean He has a twisted relationship with his sister Maggie that becomes convoluted when she is accused of murder Each woman who shows up in this story brings out undesirable characteristics in our main character.I found it hard to get involved with the story There is plenty of action and intrigue, but the characters failed to have any redeeming qualities, in my opinion There are bad tempers all ar [...]
I don t know but I just didn t enjoy this book Eb, an ex helicopter army pilot, is supposedly suffering from PTSD but I didn t really see it factor in until the very end of the novel The mystery of who and why a bomb was placed in his sister s car an ex FBI agent was really kind of confusing with so many undercover and double undercover people and who s retired and who isn t And how many surprise, hidden relatives can there be in one novel Sorry, it just seemed convoluted and the author just see [...]
Ed Maclean is a troubled PTSD former helicopter pilot living in small town Michigan HiS sister, a former FBI agent, is running a restaurant there that they Own together When her car is bombed Ed begins to look into what is going on The plot is convoluted than complex but it is fast reading although than a bit unrealistic.
A thriller with lots of twists and red herrings A helicopter pilot having returned from Afghanistan and still suffering from the aftereffects must find out who set off a car bomb and is murdering people in order to save his sister.
Spy thrillerLots of action and deceit going on here Just who is telling the truth The author did a good job of bringing the past into the book for the reader so we weren t confused for too long.
It was okay but too technical and too much government crap for my taste
FBI, ATF agents, car bombing, murder, kidnapping and Secrets and lies being told Eb MacLean is right in the middle of it and his sister, Maggie is one of the ones telling lies.
Looking forward to book 2.
A little confusingMaybe it s because I didn t read any of Eb MacLean before this one, but I was confused several times during the read Not sure I ll try any of the others.
The author made a decent effort but the writing seem very amateurish to me.
