SUMMARY × MEMORYCARDZOO.CO.UK ´ Chris Mooney

.
My biggest complaint about this book IS THAT THERE WAS NO RESOLUTION that there was no resolution ust ended The bad guys weren t caught and no motive just ended The bad guys weren t caught and no motive their unspeakably cruel behavior was ever determined The whole book seemed to be a vehicle for showing how much of a fighter Darby is Then there is her relationship with Coop It hits a snag which seems weak I do admire Darby s strength smarts and courage But she seems to be in over her head with this book I will proba Brilliant book Real page turner which at some points made me worry for the sanity of this talented author A disappointing ending in that you were left wanting so much and I hope that is what mr mooney is working on right now Time taken to read in and out over 4 days Pages 468Publisher PenguinSource Bought copyBlurb from Goodreads Charlie Rizzo has his family at gunpoint and when Darby arrives to defuse the scene she finds him horrifically mutilated with a mask of human skin sewn in place over his own face Within minutes a group of men disguised as SWAT officers bursts in and releases deadly Sarin gas killing the Rizzo family outright and leaving Darby herself barely *aliveWhere has Charlie Rizzo been held all these years Who are The Twelve who have been executing this gruesome torture And *has Charlie Rizzo been held all these years Who are The Twelve who have been executing this gruesome torture And are the FBI running scared in the face of this particular chilling episode Darby is facing the toughest case of her careerand as the body count rises one that will bring her into great personal danger and leave her in fear of losing her mind if not her soulMy Review Darby has been called to a hostage situation a Wow this book was even better than I expected The best Mooney book I have read so far A gripping tale of secret religious cults and missing children that starts off with a bang and only lets up somewhat in the middle before moving non stop towards a tension filled finish that leads one to believe the story is not yet over and will be continued in later books Well written and suspenseful Highly recommended The Soul Collectors35 StarsOn suspension following the events of the previous book forensics investigator Darby McCormick is called in to assist a SWAT team when a man who has taken his entire family hostage asks for her specifically Just as Darby is about to defuse the situation a group of armed men storm the house setting in motion a series of events that reveal the dark and deadly deeds of an extremist group involved in child kidnapping torture and mutilation While The Soul Collectors is a fast paced and action packed thriller it is not as satisfying as the other books in the series mainly due to the rather far fetched cultconspiracy plot as well as Darby s unrealistic transition from forensic expert to Zena Warrior Princ. Charlie Rizzo has his family at gunpoint and when Darby arrives to defuse the scene she finds him horrifically mutilated with a mask of human skin sewn in place over his own face Within minutes a group of men disguised as SWAT officers bursts. Ess The basic premise of a religious cult abducting and indoctrinating children is compelling and the villains come across as an even diabolical incarnation of the Opus Dei in Dan Brown s Da Vinci Code However the motives behind the crimes are obscure and the group s ability to infiltrate a variety of agencies is implausible Darby is an engaging heroine and it is entertaining to see her getting the better of the men in the book Nevertheless her sudden militant persona is at odds with her characterization from earlier in the series and the change is not for the better Moreover the developments in her relationship with coop are also disappointing they seem to take are also disappointing They seem to take welcome steps forward in accepting their attraction but this is immediately followed by a huge step back The inclusion of view spoilerCoop s sudden girlfriendfianc e in London hide spoiler I have read a few other

Mooney novels other Darby McCormick novels I had enjoyed them enough to keep picking up Chris Mooney novels as I ve found them Unfortunately I ust could not get on with The Soul Collectors at all finding it bordering on the side of far fetched and ridiculous I really enjoyed the first few chapters I was dying to know what happened to Charlie and who had tortured him in such a way What had happened Who had done it What involvement had his family had I flew through the chapters uite uickly even during the chemical attack Right up until Darby gets taken for decontamination and then the book seemed to grind to a halt It became a repetitive cycle of frustrating events that had no real plot progression Darby was written like a Angelina Joile look a like Bruce Lee She was bringing down multiple men in seconds without blinking she was ducking and diving and full ninja at points I don t remember her other novels with much clarity but I don t remember her being action woman Her role ust added to the sense of the ridiculous that was supported by the scale of the plot The plot itself had started so well but devolved into this frustrating series of events in which everyone was the bad guy and Darby was hunted and alone I had to admit novels where the big bad is omnipotent and has infiltrated every political office and or law enforcement branch really frustrate me and I rarely finish them if starting them at all if I get branch really frustrate me and I rarely finish them if starting them at all if I get vibe from the blurb The fact that the FBI and army and such all seemed to be against Darby ust really annoyed me and seemed so ridiculous On top of Darby Lee running round attacking everyone I ust couldn t finish it DO NOT READ THIS BOOK Not even A Streetcar Named Desire.
