Alana Woods’ book reviews: FADOESQUE by John L Work

I’ve read all of Work’s novels and without exception thought them classy thrillers, but this one is on a totally different level.

The story grips, the writing is masterful, and the main character, Mike Donnelly, is oh-so-real. In fact, everything about the book is so spot on I can’t fault it.

Work’s descriptions in places make you pause, go back, and re-read them, the second time to savour the wording and muse on how perfectly the phrases are constructed.

And I dare you not to smile at the reasoning of why a man, any man, is incapable of resisting a beautiful woman; it’s priceless.

I wondered at the title before beginning to read but it was quickly explained and I have to say how absolutely perfect and poetic it is for the story.

A final comment is about Work’s usual habit of anchoring his stories with facts; it’s one of the reasons why his stories are so good.

I’m not going to give anything away about the storyline except to say that FADOESQUE doesn’t disappoint.
