AyeNow I m hopeful that JP fans and James himself can forgive me for this review given that he sold like 400 million copies of his books since BUT this was slowwwwwww This is James s first ever published novel back in 1976 I m not surprised however that James s first few novels have been lost in history amid the Alex Cross craze Not many people have even heard of this novel including myself up until not long ago called The Thomas Berryman Number I ll start with the writing I know that since this first novel James s writing has improved a lot It s not terrible in this novel but it s a bit stunted and lacks the sort of paciness that he s become famous for since I was also a bit distracted by freuent paragraph breaks where they shouldn t have been It felt a bit jumpy or something like it lacked fluidity I d also have a hard time calling this book a thriller Mystery novel yes Thriller debatable It so read like a sort of hardboiled fiction And I couldn t help but imagine this as though it was a black and white filmFurther I found the plot kind of confusing I think this was mostly because the plot was slow and not all that interesting so I became a bit dazed and inattentive while reading it I lost interest fairly uickly in the story and the characters But the story jumps back and forth between present and past uite often and it s easy to miss the timeline switches if you aren t paying close attention Okay back to the writing uickly to James s credit it is clear that he s always been a very very good writer of first person narration Even here in his first ever novel it is clear that he s always had a gift at tapping into the first person First person narration is the most difficult style in my opinion but James does it well when few others can Not much else to say This is a shortish novel easy to read in a day or two or three But I d recommend sticking to James s popular novels

This book has NOT aged well In a nutshell it s about a reporter investigating the assassination of a Tennessee politician killed because he s Black Besides the freuent racial slurs and stereotypes yes I realize this was written in the 70s and the subject cannot avoid some of that fr the bad guys this was just BAD The storyline was difficult to follow numerous threads were just abandoned or tied up very sloppily and the biggest event of the whole book was written so anticlimactic ly I wasn t even sure what was happening 2 stars is a HARSH rating from me but this is firmly 2 stars
