Definitely the worst book I've read written by Nicci French

Definitely the worst book I've read written by Nicci French. Usually I really like their books, but this one was a bad thriller in every way: it wasn't exciting, no reason to read on, very predictable and an open ending (that last one is subjective, I just really don't like open endings).

But of course I won’t be using that number, Rupert, because you explained to me how perfectly safe this situation was and that I had nothing to worry about.

But of course I won’t be using that number, Rupert, because you explained to me how perfectly safe this situation was and that I had nothing to worry about. And that’s still the case, although we had hoped for a conviction by now.

The Safe House has been added to your Cart. This book was a little slow and had lots of social info which is always a staple of Vachss books. Nazis, and abused women, Feds, and boms, could you ask for more.

I hadn’t looked at her properly until now. Her pale oval face, behind the swing of dark-brown hair, was perfectly expressionless. Under her neat thick eyebrows, her brown eyes were unfocused. Under her neat thick eyebrows, her brown eyes were unfocused attractive, she could be lovely in different circumstances, but hers was a face from which all character seemed to have been wiped. Let me show you round the house,’ I said. Though that won’t take long.

Samantha Laschen, a doctor specialising in post-traumatic stress disorder, has moved to the Essex coast with her small daughter, Elsie, to escape the problems of her London life. Or so she thinks. Fiona Mackenzie barely survived the savage, murderous attack which left her parents dead. Now she is in need of sanctuary and the police see Sam as the ideal person to offer her a safe house. But as Fiona makes her way into the hearts of her hosts, Sam discovers that the risks she has foreseen are nothing to the terrifying danger she actually faces ...

An ok book with a terrible ending. There were some really good twists in the story but also some rather silly parts. I could not understand how Dr Sam was so distraught about the death of her lover after she had been constantly thinking of dumping him and moving away to have a break from him! Why would she go out in a small boat, in a storm, when she hates water and is a novice at sailing? Especially when she is having doubts about the person who is taking her, it doesn't make sense. I think I will stick with the Frieda KIein series.

The street word on this Burke novel was that it, like FALSE ALLEGATIONS and CHOICE OF EVIL, was spoiled by an excess of didacticism and a paucity of plot and action. When I finally located and read a copy, which was not easy, by the way, I found the word to be exaggerated.
There is indeed a plot, which blends white-supremacist movements with the societal problems of stalking and spousal abuse. To help out old friend Herk and new friend Crystal Beth, Burke and his "family" find themselves needing to murder a couple of bad guys in cold blood and put all their lives on the line to derail a plan to level a Federal building in NYC with half a dozen truckloads of explosives.
Burke finds himself working with an enigmatic undercover figure who calls himself Pryce, and who is multiply connected to the local and state police, and Feds, in extraordinary ways. There is a hint that Pryce may enter Burke's life again, once he gets a new face; let's hope he does.
In summary, this is another chilling Vachss tour of the underbelly of our society. If you have a strong stomach, it's a tour you won't regret taking.

It started out great but fizzled out very quickly and the only reason I kept reading was to find out what happened in the end.
The story was lack lustre and the characters boring

If you are a fan of Andrew Vachss and I am, you look forward to the next book, so was the way with SAFE HOUSE. Buke in NYC with all his crew, Mama, Prof, Max, Michelle, Clarence, his whole crew. And we meet Wolfe again and Vyra and introducing Crystal Beth. I like the book in NYC and with the crew, they all add so much. This book was a little slow and had lots of social info which is always a staple of Vachss books. Nazis, and abused women, Feds, and boms, could you ask for more. RECOMMENDED. On to CHOICE OF EVIL.

Once again, I have this book in hardback but had to buy it for my kindle, (eyes are not getting any younger) I am a great fan of Andrew Vachss books.
Once you start a Vachss book, you are in for the night. All great books deserve to be read again and again. Buy the book. Do yourself a favor and start with Flood.

Good book

This book was only ok because I thought the ending was very loose and I had to keep going back a few pages to see if I had missed something, so disappointed
Good
