    The Murder Exchange by Simon Kernick That being said, THE MURDER EXCHANGE is one of the best books that I ve read recently The delivery of the narration through two points of view leads to an interesting contrast and juxtaposition of the two lead characters and the events of the story, as well as a very suspenseful conclusion to the book.

    2. Hi,another book read by Simon Kernick, a little slower to start with but builds to a fast pace in the second half, and you follow the story with the twomain characters.As usual lots of characters, and following it from two very different personalities, lots of guessing The last few chapters were very exciting.EnjoyregardsSean

    3. I quite enjoyed this 2nd Simon Kernick novel, I was pleasantly surprised as wasn t expecting too much if I m an honest I like the use reference of characters in Kenricks Debut novel similar to an otherUK other Michael Robotham The novel has plenty of violence pretty much what you would expect from a gritty London Underworld novel.

    4. After the previous Simon Kernick book I read, and after positive reviews of this one, I was expecting great things of this book But sadly not Yes, the storyline is a good one, and starts off with much promise of great things But it is all about guns and shooting and who killed who Yes, I like crime thrillers, but this is NOT one of those Characters are just not well developed for me Many of them rather one dimensional Such a letdown after the previous Tina Boyd one I read I was going to give thi [...]

    5. Started interesting, drug along through the middle and then went on a high speed roller coaster ride at the very very end The end was almost too fast action packed frenetic Had potential but could benefit from an editor encouraging better pacing.

    6. I find this author a bit hit miss but this was definitely one of his much better books IMHO anyhow A good story that moves at a fast pace I like the story was told by both Gallan Iversson sort of good versus bad

    7. I enjoy thrillers and could not put this book down until I had completed the read it definitely held my imagination however I did feel that the chapter about Krys Holtz was too graphic.

    8. BrilliantGreat book, keeps you reading and guessing Great twist the end to Highly recommend it, so sit back and enjoy it

    9. If the middle of the book was as fast paced as the final 100 odd pages then it would have easily scored higher than 3 stars Some characters were not ingrained in my mind either.

    10. I am slowly working my way through Simon Kernick s books and this is the second book he released Simon Kernick has a very certain type of writing style His books are usually very fast paced and normally it takes only a matter of a chapter or two before you are thrown in at the deep end of a story.This book followed the same format and we dive straight into Max Iversson s bad decision and when it all goes wrong However, although you are thrown in at the deep end very quickly, the suspense level i [...]

    11. I really like the style of Simon Kernicks writing, and I like the main characters, because they are always very well developed and interesting, not 2D, you can really imagine them living There are however some similarities to his other books that I ahev read, mainly the main character Iversson I felt he was very similar to Dennis Milne, maybe its the way Simon Kernick writes, but I had to remind myself this was Iversson and not Milne Also the involvement of the female character I think its Elain [...]

    12. This thriller mystery may be Simon Kernick s second novel but far from the second one I have read through the years I am just catching up with his repertoire In fact, I have highly recommended his novels in the past and I have a sneaking impression I will do so for many years, yes I admit being a huge fan The Murder Exchange is a gritty exploration of London s underworld The engaging plot is cleverly written, has a touch of humour to it and provides numerous twists to keep us tuned in and flipp [...]

    13. The five star rating scale implies the following categories Excellent, Good, OK Satisfactory , Poor, Failure Three stars is exactly what this book deserves It is an OK book It is a satisfactory book Nothing and nothing less The Business of Dying four stars from me by the same author has a wonderful undercurrent of moral ambiguity It is than just a crime story Despite the total idiocy of its fast action ending, The Business of Dying got me thinking.No thinking needed in The Murder Exchange It i [...]

    14. The second of the books by Simon Kernick and already I can spot that his plots are slightly formulaic It was obvious with 100 pages to go who was responsible for some of the plot outcomes and who would not be alive at the end of the book However, all is not doom and gloom with the book as the story was fast paced and, although so full of action, twists and turns that it was almost unbelievable, it is an interesting read, reasonably enjoyable and has characters for whom I felt some sympathy There [...]

    15. I have decided against giving this book a star rating as I feel that the story was greatly let down by the terrible narration by Dave John I think that the story was plausible, but I couldn t get into it due to John s reading Firstly, he used the same annoying East London verging on Cockney accent for both Iverson s and Gallon s first person narration which didn t help in identifying with the characters or following the different perspectives I also felt that the dialogues were awful, but knowin [...]

    16. Thrilling, fast paced, and packed with action What else can you ask for D Even though the plot wasn t anything outstanding, the ride through it was entertaining enough to let that slide The narration was well written It s great how we can see both side of the coin with 2 opposing mc Even better, both of their perspective are equally amusing Did I mention, the pacing was perfect too The book made sure I didn t have a break to put it down until the ending fell on me Overall, this was a fun read It [...]

    17. This picked up after about 100 pages and I ve been reading it for the last couple of hours and enjoying every minute It s typical Kernick Lots of twists and turns More bodies than clues I felt the two main characters were fairly similar I think I would have got confused if their sections had not had their names above them I liked them both until the end where I started to like Max less But then he lied to the reader in his POV which just seemed like an odd thing to do I mean he s basically talki [...]

    19. I have only given three stars The reason is that I found the plot somewhat protracted on occasions This said I have enjoyed a number of the later books and it maybe that I was expecting Please read it for yourself though and make up your own mind I will definitely be reading Simon Kernick.

    20. I got into Simon Kernick last year when i read Ultimatum, i since decided to go back a read all of his books from the start I ve finished Business for dying , A good day to die and now Murder Exchange and so far i can not fault any of them You can tell though that his writing style and story lines just keep getting better and better.

    21. This is a rare occasion for me marking so low on one of my favourite authors Simon Kernick I didn t enjoy this book at all and maybe it was because it was one of his early books but I found it predictable and lacking the usual high standard I have got used to If you are no familiar with his work read one of his later books which are of a particular high standard.

    22. Probably my least favourite of his books I didn t think the story flowed particularly well, and it certainly wasn t as much of a page turner as some of his other thrillers Worth a read, though, if you re a fan.

    23. Not nearly as good as the author s first book The Business of Dying, but an acceptable thriller with quite a lot of violence and convoluted plot.

    24. another wonderful book by simon kernick got off to a great start from the very beginning but slowed down a bit later on but the ending was superb had me up all night I just couldn t go to sleep without finishing it

    25. Decent thriller, though the switching out perspectives during the near climactic fight felt like a bit of a cheat and threw me out of the action Still, solid, and will probably check out by him.

    26. Not as good as Kernick s first book but an ok read A bit slow on the middle which was no problem to put the book down but the pace picked it up a bit in the end Story told by the two main characters, a detective sergeant Gallan, and a mercenary, Inversson.

    27. Was ok, this was I thought of a mans book, it took longer for me to read, as I was not into it as much as some of his other work.
