Beware the Sock Puppeting Author Sept. 4 2012
By RT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I feel compelled to add one more warning for people considering this novel. The author, RJ Ellory, has admitted writing glowing reviews for his own books using assumed names. I read some of the reviews for this novel, and it is hard to believe they were written by regular people. I encourage everyone to use common sense when reading reviews, and to make sure they look at some of the negative reviews as well. (Although you also have to be careful with those reviews because RJ Ellory has also admitted to writing stink bomb reviews for the work of competing authors.)

If he could write novels as good as he writes his own reviews Sept. 3 2012
By Alucard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It is a shame that he can only write reviews well as his stories are full of clichés, bad stereotypes, plot holes, and sadly lacking in originally

A Quiet Vendetta-what an ironic title Sept. 4 2012
By L D Hudson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I imagine old R.J. must have had quite a laugh when he chose the title for this book, given that he himself was secretly engaged in a vendetta against other crime writers. I believe I may have fallen victim to his despicable tactics. At one point, I had been about to buy works by Mark Billingham, but decided against it based on convincing, negative reviews. Like most people, I hate to be duped, and I'm sure what Mr Ellory has done will backfire on him.

Great writing May 13 2013
By Linda M Rink - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent writing and wonderful intrigue. This is one of the best books I have read this year. Ellory really develops his character and plot and ideas in a suspenseful way. I think back to Oliver North and the contra affair and now would really like to read the congressional report and see if its indeed truth or fiction. I am glad Ellory got me interested in that subject. I love mysteries and this is one of the best written mysteries I have ever read.
talent! June 13 2014
By Janet B. Killeen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Excellent read. His use of language makes you stop just to re-read descriptions and really feel with your senses what is being described.talen
