    I suppose excited would be wrong word but I was certainly intrigued by the sound of this book There are some pretty brutal crime fiction books out there but with the advent of self publishing it seems self published authors are pushing the boundaries , and writing books that perhaps bigger publishers might ask to be toned down I picked up this book then expecting that, unfortunately it was a bit long winded, not very well edited but otherwise a really enjoyable read that I had read in less than a day For the most part, it s a really good book but it is let down by the editing That said the Kindle store is absolutely littered with crap, but often among the detritus you find something worth reading, and One Man Crusade definitely is.The premise might not be for everybody, and Steven Suttie s advertising campaign didn t go down too well in Tameside, but it still asks a question that I would say most people have asked or alluded to when watching the news What is the reaction of most people when the latest paedophile is on the news Outrage, calling for them to be hung, drawn and quartered In this book somebody takes it upon themselves to start murdering paedophiles across Manchester by gunning them down, the killer has been on a bit of a spree over a fortnight and is showing no signs of slowing down The killer shoots the convicted paedophiles with an amount of bullets representative of the amount of convictions they have It s a bit of a Dexter situation These men have been convicted of one of the worst crimes, yet have now been released How is this fair But, is death, is murder the answer The public don t want to live among them after all Characters in the book, even within the police have varying opinions on the matter.A serial killer is always a frightening prospect for any city, and in order to keep citizens calm the police, or rather DCI Miller has no option but to reveal the full truth This is where politics come into play Miller is a high ranking officer but still those above him are making him do their dirty work He certainly has a job on his hands trying to apprehend this killer Does he even want to catch or stop the killer With no idea when the killer will strike next, it is an unpredictable, and exciting read at times It s hard to talk further about the plot, in fiction boundaries are pushed, it s perhaps not the most realistic book I ve read recently but it s certainly one of the addictive In terms of the ending, again not the most realistic and some might find it silly whilst others might think it s brilliant I did like it, but just think others might find it a bit too unrealistic to completely get on board with I think it s the ending you would want in real life, but it s an ending you just wouldn t get if it was real.I also felt that the book was a lot longer than it needed to be, and I found myself rereading parts because some of it just made no sense That said though given that I read it in just over 24 hours it s a clear sign that I did enjoy it But it did remind me why I tend to stick to traditionally published authors, they have their books edited, taking out the unnecessary parts and just giving it that overall polished look and feel Again though, for an author to write a book and get it out there, and then sell it is very difficult with all the have a go authors cluttering up the Kindle chart I do recommend this book, Suttie has potential as an author and I d definitely be interested in reading any books he writes in the future Thanks to Steven Suttie for the review copy.

    Absorbing and shocking in equal measure, One Man Crusade is the very definition of a Can t Put It Down crime thriller, with a plot that doesn t let up and characters drawn with a detail and affection it s rare to see in this genre This is unquestionably an author to look out for.

    The blurb for this book got me very intrigued, and the story quite literally starts with a bang in the form of gun shots The shots are being fired by someone who is taking it upon themselves to rid society of paedophiles This is how the story gets you thinking about the rights and wrongs of our justice system, and apparent lack of police powers I enjoyed this book and liked the mix of character personalities DCI Miller and his team, and the problems they encountered during the investigation, made for interesting reading This is the first book in a series, and the first book I ve read by Suttie I ll be reading soon.

    Difficult I have read a lot of indie work over the last couple of years, some good, some bad Mostly not quite up to scratch because the writing, the grammar, the spellchecking, the basic editing various things can go wrong, and often do Much indie publishing is amateur, but that does not excuse blatant amateurism This is an odd one It is not absolutely wonderful, but the writing is grammatical, without glaring errors, and the author can write pretty well and I mean that, this guy has storytelling skills.But there are problems.The story is police based, set in Manchester and surrounding towns We have a juicy murder near the start, which we then find is part of a much larger pattern The motive is explained but then the problems start The police reaction particularly among senior officers is not entirely credible at least, not to me Individual officers are well drawn characters but some of their reactions to particular crimes did not feel right and much of the plot depends on a form of conspiracy theory that I could not accept.There are plot holes the criminal has access to information that is not easily available, and this access was not explained, and he has firearms skills that imply truly exceptional talent or a lot training opportunities than are specified.The criticisms above are regrettable, because this author shows quite a lot of promise The descriptions, the conversations, the action scenes all held my interest Basically what I am saying is that this author is a pretty good storyteller, with a good command of written English both rare skills in indie work.But he needs to work on plots and either plug those plot holes or spend a lot time drawing the wool over the readers eyes so they won t be noticed.Just a suggestion crime may be the wrong genre Perhaps if the author tried near future SF which could still be crime or Fantasy, then his storytelling skills would be less undermined by that credibility gap Go for it With regret, three stars and I even thought about cutting down to two Even so, I will look out for other work by this author there is promise there.

    What an excellent read The author really has set out a brilliant plot The reader first encounters the murder of a young boy, enough to enrage any normal adult This is followed by the murder of a man at work and you think what the hell, poor bloke until you find out he is a paedophile.This book is very thought provoking If the law has it s hands tied is it right for a person to dish out justice to protect society s children Pop decides after trying all the ways he possible can to lobby for justice he has no choice but to do the job himself It was strange but understandable that the British public loved this hero of justice I haven t read a book before where no one wants the murderer caught, a brilliant concept of writing.The frustration of DCI Andrew Miller is commendable, a true solid bloke after justice as the law says A killer is a killer, but he has obstacle after obstacle put in his way with his seniors Karen Ellis is again a brilliant DI, on leave after having a baby only weeks before she returns to work determined to solve this case along side Miller These two are personal friends outside work too, so we get to know their families Nice touch as both have children of their own.Very well written book, it seems to have every angle covered, the police, the murderer and his reasons, the tv and press and the general public Totally engrossing read Would recommend this book to detective and thriller readers I will be reading of this author s books

    I loved this book and it hits the ground running with two men sharing a cigarette break at work, and one of them is shot dead by the time DCI Andy Miller arrived at the crime scene it seemed that all the newspaper reporters and TV crews had beaten him to it The victim was a known sex offender and this was not the first one to have been killed The killer announces that he wants to rid the streets of sex offenders which makes the public reluctant to help capture him.It seems Miller and his team are on their own and as the killings escalate the team get frustrated Will he ever be caught you will have to read the book to find out.I really do not want to spoil it for you The book was well written and I do hope that there will be another DCI Andy miller book.

    I found this book slightly slow to start with but as you get further into the book it really starts to grab you Its a very clever storyline, a vigilante killer taking the law into his own hands going around killing Pedophiles As the story unfolds and you find out the back ground of the killer you start to be behind what he is doing like the community in the book Obviously someone taking the law into their own hands puts the police into a predicament as they try to capture the killer This is a good book that has a shocking turn of events at the end look forward to reading by this author.

    A very good debut detective thriller Set in Manchester it focuses on a serial killer killing convicted paedophiles as most people don t see this as a problem Detective Miller has his work cut out The writing is a bit blokey and in the Kindle version the layout is sometimes disrupted and there are no chapter markers at the bottom The absent chapter markers are irksome and should be easy enough to put in that s not the fault of the author though A very good read and recommended

    Interesting premise but The premise of the book was interesting but the number of victims was highly unlikely.The book needed some heavier editing It was disjointed and didn t flow well I liked the banter within the police but the political interferences and corruption with that volume of bodies ,no way.The twists in the end were ridiculous and totally laughable.
