I read No Cry for Help in an evening. I seldom read books so quickly and I consider it high praise. McKenzie has a knack for making me ask questions that I really want to know the answer for and keeping me reading until the very last page. Compelling characters and conflict make this thriller a great read!

On a side note, I enjoyed the incorporation of several First Nations characters. I felt they were well written. I'll look for McKenzie's next novel.

HASH(0x9c5aec6c) out of 5 stars fast paced thriller Feb. 22 2013
By The book review cafe - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the first book I have read by this author, after coming across him through recommendations on Amazon, and I wonder what took me so long. The main character Wallace is a unusual character compared to most hero's, he is a bus driver with a limp! No Cry For Help drags you in from the first page, and keeps you riveted throughout. Why would a "average Joe", who has led a quiet life have his family taken from him? I tried to guess through much of the book, but it is full of twist and turns and keeps the suspense going right to the last chapter. The story moves fast and is hugely enjoyable. I was rooting for Wallace throughout, as his love for his family make him do things that are completely out of character, this is a man who will cross the line to have them found. The chapters are short but are full of suspense, and I flew through this book. I do not want to spoil the story for you by giving away to much of the plot, but if you love a good thriller I would highly recommend giving this book ago.... A well-written thriller and one of those books that is almost impossible to put down!

HASH(0x9c5aecc0) out of 5 stars When a Canadian Bus Driver's Family Disappears in the US, It's No More Mr Nice Family Guy! Dec 25 2010
By James N Simpson - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a fast paced Harlan Coben/Linwood Barclay style adventure where an every day guy's comfortable content world is thrown upside down when his family disappears from a shopping centre. Canadian Wallace Carver is on holiday with his wife and two sons when they fail to show at a meeting point. He freaks out becomes abusive to the security guards and police and is promptly deported when evidence shows that he crossed the border alone. Only this overweight bus driver with a bad knee knows he didn't cross the border alone but what he doesn't know is why his family has disappeared. Meanwhile Canadian police have also been looking for his family since his house is covered in blood and all possessions that don't belong to Wallace have been cleaned out. It's only that neither border town's police bothered to contact each other that Wallace isn't behind bars, which was obviously someone's plan. Wallace must sneak across the border back into the US to find out what happened to his family, luckily for him his best friend Crow is part of the Indian mafia.

That's the only real downside to this novel, it's not really a what would you do in this situation read as most people don't have the convenient connections to border smuggling and weaponry that this bus driver does through his mafia friend. However it's still a fast fun, action packed edge of your seat read. Ending is a bit unrealistic but other than that, you'll enjoy this one. Grant McKenzie's first novel Switch was also very good.

HASH(0x9c5b1114) out of 5 stars Great Read! Jan. 19 2011
By Sarah Hamilton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved McKenzie's debut Switch, and I wondered if this would keep the same fast pace as that - and I wasn't disappointed. I read it in a little over a day as I couldn't put it down.

The characters were wonderful (if in places a little - well, ok, alot - scary and unhinged) and I hope at some point McKenzie gets the chance to come back to some of them - especially Chevyo, I'm sure there's scope for a whole book about him! As in Switch - ordinary people are forced to do extraordinary things in horrible circumstances, and I hope a US publisher gives him a chance and that we get more from him.

HASH(0x9c5b10fc) out of 5 stars Gripping Feb. 21 2013
By D. Farrell - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
If you're looking for a fast-paced thriller that grips you from the first page then this is the book for you. Great story and believable characters, this book is hard to put down. My only disappointment was reaching the end. Can't wait for the next one!

HASH(0x9c5b15b8) out of 5 stars This book was too bloody for my taste. Also ... April 1 2015
By Kiana Krout - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was too bloody for my taste. Also, I felt the plot contained a lot of unlikely coincidences that provided the hero with just the person he needed to help him out at the very moment he required their help.
