Anonymous reviewed The Cat Dancers (Cam Richter, Bk 1) on
This is a rare book in that I couldn't even finish it. I got it based on all the good reviews, but I compare it to watching a "B" movie with bad acting. Poor descriptions, poor word choice, unlikeable characters.
This one will keep you on the edge of your seat. Don't start it in the evening if you have to work the following day, 'cause you're going to be up all night finding out 'what happened.'
From back cover: THRILL SEEKER----Dangling silently in front of a cave eighty feet down the cliff's edge, the man snaps a picture of the enraged mountain lion. The furious beast lunges...but the man is gone, back up the rope.
JUSTICE DEALER----When a judge releases two unrepentant killers on a legal technicality, North Carolina police Lieutenant Cam Richter knows facing the victims' grieving families is going to be tough. But when Killer #1 turns up on the Internet riding a homemade electric chair, followed a few days later by Killer #2, Cam thinks despair may have turned to vigilante justice.
MAN EATER----But it doesn't add up, especially when Cam becomes a target. It looks like these vigilantes may also be cops, and he's quickly running out of people to trust. The answers lie deep in the North Carolina wilderness, where Cam must track down this mysterious group of adrenaline-driven 'Cat Dancers'âand risk losing everything he has leftâ¦
I've read all of Deuterman's books up through this one; he has been one of my favorite authors since his first. I'm probably prejudiced because he's one of several retired military who have made it big as authors. Like most of the others, he started out writing about what he knew best - the US Navy, but he has matured into writing great thrillers with very little military connec5tion.
'The Cat Dancers' is outstanding in plot, suspense, and character development. I won't spoil it for you be describing the action. Just let me say that, as far as I can remember, I've rated all of his books four stars. This one is a five! I usually read history during the day, but fiction at night till I fall asleep; this book kept me awake several nights past he point where I usually doze off.
