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.

3.0 su 5 stelle Where's Jack? 28 giugno 2014
Di Ted Streuli - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
It's book four of the Jack Carpenter series -- sort of. In the same way that Lisa Scottoline's Rosatto and Associates series moves the point of view to different protagonists in successive stories, Swain relegates series hero Carpenter to a cameo in The Program. The difference is in the lead-up; in this series the first three books star Carpenter and book four inexplicably switches to FBI Special Agent Ken Linderman. Unfortunately, Linderman is a much flatter character than Carpenter and Swain tests the reader's ability to suspend disbelief in his attempt to add a little more depth.

Linderman tries to solve a series of murders and suspects the mastermind is a serial killer who is already in prison. Swain tries to draft a Hannibal-esque character from Silence of the Lambs all the way down to the muzzle, but it's less creepy and a lot less believable. Predictable, Linderman resolves his sole personal issue by the book's final chapter in a hurry-up-and-finish-the-book sort of way.

The Program isn't very satisfying by Swain standards and the Kindle edition i read was filled with typographical errors that were distracting at times. Fine for the beach, but don't pass on your favorite author's newest to read s one.

5.0 su 5 stelle On par with Silence of the Lambs, a must read 27 novembre 2016

James Swain is one of my favorite mystery/thriller authors. I got I initially hooked on his Las Vegas series. His background in law enforcement lends gravitas to his descriptions of both the bad guys and the people who take them down. This book however is his darkest by far, taking us into the minds and actions of multiple serial killers. Swain's story telling is masterful, his prose terse, and the conflict and tension in this book are some of the most riveting.

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.)

I give it a 3, as I do any book I'm willing to read all the way through. But be aware this is not a Carpenter book; he's barely in it. The hero is an FBI agent, world-weary and burned out due to his career catching criminal monsters and having mental problems he barely has a grip on. His partner is a young female agent to whom he gives a case she may not be ready for. There's also a sub-plot involving his long-missing daughter.

To me the book was excessively psychological and tedious. Many scenes and events seems implausible and much of the dialogue didn't quite ring true--all this just my opinion. The final event involving the missing daughter seemed to pat, especially regarding the agent's mental state.

Swain's fans will probably enjoy, others could probably take it or leave it.

I've been a big fan of James Swain's work for years. The Program is one of my favorites. Swain presents us with an intricate plot with not one, but two villains.

A serial killer, Mr. Clean, is kidnapping violent teenage boys and putting them through a horrifying ordeal called "The Program" in an attempt to turn them into sadistic, vicious killers---mirror images of him. He's aided by Crutch, another greatly drawn villain who's as cruel and brutal as Mr. Clean. Crutch is serving time in a federal prison, but manages to communicate through a smuggled cell phone.

The main character, FBI Special Agent Ken Linderman, a profiler, and another FBI agent, Rachel Vick, are using all of their resources to get inside Mr. Clean and Crutch's heads and rescue the abducted boy before he's turned.

You can tell that Swain did a lot of research for this book. The insight he shares about the mind of a serial killer and the inner workings of the FBI are fascinating.

There are plot twists and turns in this book and a surprise ending you won't see coming.

One of the things I like most about Swain is his ability to grab you and not let go. I was reading this book on my iPad when I ran out of battery power. I was so eager to get to the next page that I ran around my house searching for my charger. The cord was too short, so I sat on the floor near the outlet to finish the book.

This is one of those books that stays with you long after you've read it. If you read this book, make sure your digital reader is fully charged and get ready for a thrilling ride!
