Sinossi

THE PROGRAM

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From the national bestselling mystery novelist the Wall Street Journal calls “One terrific writer” comes a heart-pounding thriller pitting a deadly serial killer against two determined FBI agents.

Is it possible to create a serial killer? FBI Special Agent Ken Linderman (last seen alongside Jack Carpenter in bestseller The Night Monster) is about to find out. A serial killer has kidnaped seventeen-year-old Wayne Ladd, and is putting the boy through the Program, a fiendish project designed to turn young boys into raging killers. Along with hot-headed FBI Agent Rachel Vick, Linderman must race against the clock to save Wayne before he’s turned into a monster.

With the odds against them and time running out, Linderman and Vick will stop at nothing to save Wayne, and bring a sadistic criminal to justice.

5.0 su 5 stelle TOP NOTCH THRILLER 3 ottobre 2010
Di Rich Dugger - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
"Swain is one of my favorite writers, and he didn't disappoint me with this terrific story. The basic plot involves two FBI agents trying to catch a serial killer called Mr. Clean who's abducted a troubled teenager named Wayne Ladd, and is attempting to groom him into becoming a killer like himself. He's being helped by a great villain named Crutch who's sitting in a federal prison, and communicates to him through an illegal cell phone. The plot is filled with plenty of twists and turns and lots of great characters and fast-paced action. There is an underlying story about one of the FBI agents finding his missing daughter, which gets solved at the end. Swain also introduces a new character, a female FBI agent named Rachel Vick, who's seriously flawed and a great addition to the ensemble he's put together. I read this book in two sittings, and enjoyed every minute of it."

5.0 su 5 stelle What a great read 19 ottobre 2010
Di Jeanne M. Williams - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I love the Jack Carpenter series of books by James Swain. This book is an offshoot of that series. The main character, Ken Linderman, a retired FBI profiler appeared in other Jack Carpenter books. In this book he is working on a difficult case. A serial killer is kidnapping violent teenage boys and putting them through "the program" - attempting to create the next generation of killers to carry on his work. As Linderman & his subordinate work the case it brings up difficult memories of his daughter who disappeared from college several years earlier. Through the fast paced action & the many plot twists the reader is swept up into the case. I read this over two evenings because I could not put it down - loved this book.

2.0 su 5 stelle Not as good as some of his others 13 gennaio 2013
Di Eric C. Welch - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
Part of Swain's Jack Carpenter series --I was introduced to Swain with the excellent Valentino books-- Carpenter doesn't make an appearance until about a third into the book. The FBI agent working on the case recommends to a newly in charge agent, Rachel Vick, that she seek Carpenter's advice as one especially knowing about missing persons, abductions, and serial killers, but also as someone more interest in "justice" than in the "law." (Ah, those wanting to make that distinction rearing their ugly torsos since, in my opinion, they should not be separate and to permit individuals to define what constitutes "justice" is dangerous, indeed.)

I have enjoyed some of Swain's other books, particularly his "grifter" series. This one, while a fast read that holds the interest, seemed wildly implausible, with a convict in virtual solitary running a serial killer on the outside who recruits to killing through the "program," which seemed to be hardly novel or unusual. And yet the implausible is intermixed with the prosaic but little actual investigation. And the Danni business. Didn't buy it. But the cookie business was interesting (sorry, you'll have to read the book to see how that fits in.)

My friend recommended this book to me. It grabbed me right from the beginning! This is my first book I read by Mr. Swain and won't be my last. I am a big fan now. The pages came alive for me. Looking forward to a Crutch sequel.

4.0 su 5 stelle Decent Thriller 19 gennaio 2011
Di Rick Mitchell - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
This is a decent thriller. Nothing out of the ordinary and Mr. Swain's other books are all far better. FBI agent Ken Linderman is joined by the young Rachel Vick searching for a serial killer. They both specialize in serial killers. The hunt brings in another serial killer named Crutch who, according to the author, is based upon a true killer who died in 2002.

The action is fairly normal for this genre, although Mr. Swain is able to keep the tension high throughout. Much of the plot is predictable. There is a gratuitous extra story near the end that really did not enhance the book.

The two FBI agents are good characters with some depth. Linderman fights his personal terrors which adds a dimension to him. The serial killer and their handling by the agents is the best aspect of the book, especially Crutch.

This was a good thriller, but by no means great. I would suggest Swain's other books which feature Jack Carpenter (he makes cameo appearances in this one) or his series starring a casino cop over this book. This is a fast-paced read and amusing, but there are plenty of this genre out there better.
