A very good mystery.

Jan 28, 2015

An excellent rating is given to Lisa Black's 'Blunt Impact' due to her being a creative and unique story teller. In particular the manner in which she maintains continuity, flow and interweaving three separate storylines and does it seamlessly. Although some loos ends were left untied and a frenzied paced, physically questionable ending it was a good read. Also, let me add, I do not approve or condone any author's who over use children or teens characters to launch a storyline in spite of a somewhat flawed premise, logic of circumstances, diatribes of the youth character, and it's lack of rationale to the reader.
