REVIEW à PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ö Roger HobbsGhostman

REVIEW Ghostman ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Stunningly dark hugely intelligent and thoroughly addictive Ghostman announces the arrival of an exciting and highly distinctive novelist When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from someone who’s occasionally called Jack While it’s doubtful that anyone knows his actual name or anything at all about his true identity or even if he’s still alive he’s in his mid thirties and lives completely off the grid a criminal’s criminal who does entirely as he pleases and is almost impossible to get in touch with But within hours a private jet is flying this e. The main character from Ghostman makes some toast I went into the kitchen and put two pieces of sliced sourdough bread into the toaster You can use any type of bread to make toast but I prefer sourdough Other professional toast makers use whole grain or even raisin bread but I like the taste and consistency of sourdough when toasted properly Only a fool or an amateur would use white Wonder BreadI was using a Proctor Silex 22605 Cool Wall 2 Slice Toaster with white plastic sides and chrome top I put the bread in the slots and pressed down the handle which activated the contacts and applied power to the circuit board 120 volts of power ran through the contacts to the nichrome wires at temperatures exceeding 300 degrees to toast the bread When the capacitor reached a certain voltage it cut the power to the electromagnet inside and allowed the spring to pop the toast up If you don t know what you re doing it s easy to burn the bread or not have it toasted enough but I had practiced with the Proctor Silex enough to have the settings memorized Some may use fancier toasters capable of holding four slices and a real showboat might have one of those fancy bagel toasters The Proctor Silex had always gotten the job done for meSo that s the deal with this book You re going to learn a whole lot of shit about every single piece of hardware or procedure involved whether you want to or not But since I m a junkie for heist novels I still liked itJack is a ghostman a professional armed robber who lives off the grid and is a master of disguise After a hit on the money delivery from an ard car to an Atlantic City casino goes horribly wrong the guy who planned the job Marcus calls Jack in to track down the missing cash and heisters Jack ordinarily wouldn t touch something this messy but he owes Marcus a debt for a job that went sideways in Kuala Lumpur Besides he s bored There was a lot about this debut book from Roger Hobbs that I loved In the early chapters from the ard car robbery through our introduction to Jack it seemed like we may be getting a new version of Parker for the digital age The action and pace are brisk the plot makes for an original page turner filled with all kinds of underworld types and the flashbacks to the botched job in Kuala Lumpur added another layer to it I especially liked that Jack was kind of a slippery character to the reader too He shows himself capable of decisive and cold blooded action When he threatens others and boasts of a nature that seems to delight in bloodshed and misery to avoid boredom you re not entirely sure how much of that is true It makes him an enigma and that s a nice way to handle a main guy when we don t even know his real nameHowever what dragged this one down from 4 to 3 stars was that Roger Hobbs didn t know when to just say I made some toast instead of elaborating on every detail like I spoofed at the beginning of this review From the interview I read with Hobbs here on Goodreads I get the feeling that he got so caught up with his research and invention of criminal procedures that he didn t know when to stop So we get a whole lot of info dumpingFor example with every gun that makes an appearance in the story we also learn the magazine capacity caliber muzzle velocity etc etc whether it gets fired or not I d chalk that up as gun porn but Hobbs does it with everything not just firearms So when Jack confronts a shotgun wielding thug we get treated to a graphic description of the type of shells in the weapon and what they would do to a fleeing person Which also begs the uestion how Jack would know what type of ammo was loaded into the gun without some kind of x ray specs For all he knows it could be rock salt or bird shot in there Then minutes later he breaks down all the reasons why a shovel makes a terrible weaponWhen he provides details critical to the story it s fascinating The idea of booby trapped federal reserve money is great not just because it s awesome Gee Whiz tech but because it s an important plot point But Hobbs doesn t discriminate At one point Jack finds an apartment that has been broken into and the lock on the front door was splintered where it was pried open He notes that the police wouldn t enter like that so he knows someone else was there but then he goes on to detail all the ways that the police would access an apartment from getting a pass key to using a battering ram Why It has nothing to do with the story All he had to say was that the police don t break into places like that We didn t need a laundry list of how they would do it if necessaryI probably got hung up on these details than I should have because I was so interested in the main story that I resented deviations from it Still I hope that Hobbs continues to refine what he did here and delivers some crime novels in the future because he s got a lot of very cool ideas and a helluva readable style He just needs to learn not to tell us everything he learned in one bookCross posted at Shelf Inflicted

REVIEW Ghostman ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Xceptionally experienced fixer and cleaner upper from Seattle to New Jersey and right into a spectacular mess one heister dead in the parking lot another winged but on the run the shooter a complete mystery the 12 million in freshly printed bills god knows where and the FBI already waiting for Jack at the airport to be joined shortly by other extremely interested and elusive parties He has only forty eight hours until the twice stolen cash literally explodes taking with it the wider byzantine ambitions behind the theft To contend with all this will reuire every gram of his skill ingenuity and self protective instincts especially wh. I wish I read Ghostman on a plane I have a set of plane reading rules1 Nothing too intense2 Nothing that makes me think too much3 Something that would make a good movie is idealSince I hate planes and wasn t going anywhere however I read Ghostman over a long weekend I only picked up the book because of the online hype filtered through the NY Times and Barnes and Noble sites Now my expectations were high and while I didn t love the novel I read the sucker in two days and I only checked to see how much was left once or twice I m not going to pee my pants in praise though probably because I m not a mystery person In fact the high praise bestowed on Ghostman from fans of that genre makes me wonder if the majority of mystery books on the shelves are way shitty I don t know Maybe the comparison doesn t fit Ghostman functions as a well constructed crime novel and I think the film has potential but I wasn t moved or excited and I m not emailing my friends to check out the book Good Not great Better than okay
