Author:  Cody McFadyen
Genre:  Thriller, Smoky Barrett Series #5
Published:  2016
Personal Rating:  DNF #1
Format:  eBook

I could cry over this book.  This author has had me on a roller coaster.  Loved, loved, loved his books, then he disappeared (moved to Germany apparently).  Lo and behold a new book was published and FINALLY translated to English (for the left behind crew here!), and it's an absolute DUD.  What happened Cody?!?  It had an intriguing beginning, but soon after that -- plummet!  I have been struggling to get through it (hoping the tide would change) since the end of October.  I made it 1/2 way and can't do it anymore.  I'm done.  :(

Thoughts of Joy  


  1. I am so, so sad to hear this. I didn't even know that this book had been published and I do remember this author and his great character, Smoky. Sigh. Well, maybe just go back and reread the first 4.

    1. Kay ~ Ha Ha! This one was incredibly disappointing.

  2. No!!!!!!! What a bummer. :(

    1. Les ~ I don't think I've ever been so upset, angry, annoyed, etc. about a book. I think I was just looking so forward to it and to be let down was crushing. Talking about it now makes me a little ruffled, but for the most part, I'm over it. :) :) :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
