  • John Pellam, while scouting locations in Missouri for a movie, due to a casual incident, is taken as the key witness of a street murder that leaves two people dead and a cop paralyzed, from then on he is wanted by the Feds and the boss of the gang of thugs who committed that crime.
    Although I liked the other episodes of the location scout series, I was not pleased with this one, I have experienced a slow cold boring novel with a poor plot and shallow characters with the exception of Donnie Buffet, the crippled cop. Suspense was not well recreated when it has to be done and I could count just only one interesting twist that turns the whole story the other way, now Pellam goes after the perpetrators of the crime (the Feds, the thugs) , trying to find who was behind that act and why.
    This novel was written around or before 1993, it is clear that at that time Mr. Deaver was polishing his writing skills in order to become the excellent writer that he is today. So I conclude that William Jefferies and Jeffery Deaver are both the same "individual" but two different "writers"
    If you are looking for a good location scout mystery series novel, better try another attempt like Shallow Graves, is in my opinion the best of the trilogy (Shallow Graves - Bloody River Blues - Hell's Kitchen)

  • The 2nd in the Location Scout series, BLOODY RIVER BLUES, starts out like most good mysteries...Pellam literally gets caught in the middle of a hit on a person walking the street. When the dust settles, 2 people have been killed and a cop crippled.
    Pellam befriends the cop and together they try and put together the who's and why's. Deaver strengthens Pellam's character and lets him fight through all kinds of different scenarios to reach the truth. From beginning to end, Deaver never shys away from what Pellam has to do and draws into his world all sorts of bad guys, good guys and people who are definitely in the middle.
    Deaver delivers another strong mystery and you will be guessing up to the bone shattering climax as to whom did what. Jeffery Deaver triumphs again!

  • This Kindle edition is a disgrace. No whitespace between paragraphs often makes it hard to understand who is saying or doing what, or even what's happening. I can imagine someone editing a free book for Kindle in a hurry doing a job like this, but this is a book that's pretty expensive. Since writers get 30 percent of the sales -soon even 70 I think- they should take responsibility for how their work is sold.
    Mr. Deaver, show us what you are made of! Oversee the editing yourself and let everyone who bought this Kindle edition based on your good name as an author have a refund or a properly edited book.
    The book itself would get 5 stars from me (I read the paperback years ago and liked it), but the shoddy editing job takes away three of those stars for the Kindle edition.

  • Came as expectedwith no complaints. Hve not read it yet.

  • Have read a lot of Jeffrery Deavers' books, but the other ones I've read were better. This one was alright, but liked his other books better.

  • This Location Scout series has not been my favorite. Very slow read

  • Excellent
    This review requires that I write ten more words. Word, word, word, word, word, word, word, word, word, word.

  • Mr Deaver is my favourite author and this book does not disappoint.
