Madisin other works will love The Incumbentbut, if you’re new to the author’s works, I suggest starting with the aforementioned Dark Moon. A good pick for Oct. Kindle Freebie Very good first of a series. In general, when men try to gansk from a woman’s point of view, it doesn’t work, and this was no exception. This is one of those books that you can’t find anything really wrong with; but it also doesn’t jump right out and grab you either.

There’s no need to fear the ending of this book–Alton Gansky is a master storyteller. Refresh and try again. However, there were some great scenes that left me laughing, incensed and wanting more.

The end was predictable, as well.

It’s sort of like starting a conversation with someone in a bar, and 20 minutes in they tell you they’re a Jehovah’s Witness, and ganskyy badgering you about accepting Jesus Christ as your personal saviour. It was fast paced and there was some interesting tension between the main character and the lead detective.

For some reason, Gansky chose to inject Bible quotes and verses into the story no, not some evangelical killer who is doing it because THE BOOK told him to for no apparent reason.

The Incumbent

If I read this book without knowing the author, Tansky would have never guessed it was him writing it. Can’t beat that price. I feel like I got stupider reading the end of this book. Want to Read saving…. I definitely will be reading the next book in the series.

Yet, when it all fades to black, readers will sigh with relief and contentment.

Gratuitous proselytizing and stereotyped characters. I enjoyed the set-up of this political thriller, but it soon descended into nonsense.

And of course that’s not all. A chilling sense of foreboding creeps in, which won’t be fully eased until the final pages.

While some say they knew who did it in Chapter 3, I just wanted to see why Hide in fear gansy carry on like she has always done things, confronting the abductions and even a killer bravely and headfirst.

Apr 22, Linda added it. I was kind serifs enjoying this as a silly fluffy thriller until there was a sudden awkward attempt to shoehorn a Christian message into it.
