Ratcatcher review ¶ 103 download â eBook or Kindle ePUB ½ James McGee read & download Ratcatcher To emerge an attempt by the Emperor Napoleon to bring about a crushing military and psychological blow to Britain the means of which would bring terror to the seas for years to com The prologue sets the dark tone for the whole book The two highwaymen who robbed the coach killed a coachman and an officer in cold blood One of them even cut off the officer s hand And that is the case Matthew Hawkwood an ex army officer and now one of the best Bow Street Runners is assigned to solveI loved how the hero is introduced Two urchins pick pocketed some officers and then ran to the place they live Mother Gant lets them live with her as long as they bring whatever they steal And there Matthew Hawkwood is introduced He simply appeared at Mother Gant s door to catch a well known fenceThe first time we get a glimpse of his past is not through his own reminisces but a story told by a major Lawrence to his friend after Hawkwood returned his stolen watch and refused to admit he recognized him France and Britain are at war and everything is in its shadow I was never interested in France that much I don t have and reasons so for me it was easy whose side I m onI don t know if the author intention was to make Matthew Hawkwood really hot but I can say he succeeded completely Hawkwood is as real as you get He isn t some flawless knows it all He makes mistakes and he needs as much help as he can get Nothing comes easy to him Well nothing except women but that isn t that important for the story The main character could have existed for real Some people turned out to be better friends to him than expected There are no completely black or white sides in this story not counting individual actions since the killings from the beginning of the book could hardly be anything other than black And if nothing else the ending is enough to love this bookAs much as I wanted to sympathize with the villain and I did at first because he does have valid and understandable reasons why he is doing what he is doing by the end of the book he became a blubbering idiot one of those I am going to talk you to death about my plans types After reading tons of pages of that he lost all the sympathy I had for himI was than satisfied with the ending
