4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Addition to The Corbett Series
Mister Slaughter is an excellent addition to McCammon's Matthew Corbett series. It is better than the previous Queen of Bedlam, and can be read at a good clip. It could use more character development, but nonetheless it is good summer reading.

I look forward to his next volume in this series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Boring
Ever since McCammon's Swan Song, I have been a fan. His detour from the horror genre into this historical mystery series covering the adventures of Matthew Corbett in colonial America has been very entertaining. This third outing started with a well depicted tavern brawl. The description of characters and action was first-rate and promised a rousing novel. Unfortunately...

This review is from: Mister Slaughter (Hardcover)
Ever since McCammon's Swan Song, I have been a fan. His detour from the horror genre into this historical mystery series covering the adventures of Matthew Corbett in colonial America has been very entertaining. This third outing started with a well depicted tavern brawl. The description of characters and action was first-rate and promised a rousing novel. Unfortunately that was not the case despite a Jack the Ripper-type protagonist, an unceasingly fascinating backdrop, and the well-established, earnest character of Corbett. What results is a repetitive chase with unnecessary gore and some lazy stereotypes. The latter most example is a Native American who can only be related to because he had been Shanghai'd into a theater show in Britain at a young age - therefore he knew English and its customs. I still intend to read the fourth in the outing and hope that Corbett is placed in a plot requiring more nuanced detection.

This review is from: Mister Slaughter (Hardcover)
Cette chasse à l`homme est palpitante et ne manque pas de rebondissements.Certains passages sont parfois durs mais McCammon nous offre un très bon thriller.Ceci est le 3è tome des aventures de Matthew Corbett.Bravo!
