Snow Blind

Postby The Doctor » Wed May 12, 2010 3:41 am

Well, I've stepped back online after taking my time reading Red Snow.
I finally managed to read a Slade book in slow motion!!!
I make it 3 months in all... A chapter a week... then a 100 pages last night because I couldn't do it any longer! But it was worth savouring the yarn.
I thought all the mounties were gonna succumb to a Slade bloodbath, but we got lucky with our leads surviving.
Will Slade never disappoint? Obviously, never. His well read and knows what readers want. (Please add another couple of hundred pages into the next book!!!). As per usual, another rollercoaster story and extremely difficult to read as slow as I did, but well meant because as per usual I want another!
I don't do drugs, but I reckon I know what addicts feel like!
Slade, stay healthy, I want to live long and keep reading your books well into my nineties!!! (Note. I'm gonna be 43 this year!)

All the best

Mephistos trial is a farce, allowing Slade to highlight loopholes that need to be closed. Robert resigns in disgust at the system, along with mad dog, zinc, and ghost keeper.
Then the story returns to the past, with katt kidnapped by stopwatch.

Mad dog going in a kick ass fight scene, i agree with that, probably nuclear because he is a tough old sod.
Zinc would never take over as head of specialx as he couldn't be contained in the office.

We shall see, but with Rook on the scene, a crossover would be interesting.
Tortured in Angola, remember him?
Well we got tortured in Iraq lurking somewhere i reckon.

Morning Guv'nor..
Two questions one from me, and one from a friend who has just charged through all your books..

In Red Snow you give Mephisto's back story, vietnam father gone doolally bonkers big time, kid eating mum in cage...

You have said before that you start with the crimes and work backwards... So when did his back story appear in your fertile mind, and how does he go from that, into someone who has all this money flowing about when we first meet him?

from my friend...
Did you set out for de clerq and chandler to be akin to Holmes and Watson, or did it just meander its way towards that in the later books..
