Shady cross james hankins

Postby Zulkirg В» 03.02.2020

.

One bag of money. One kidnapped girl. One shot at redemption. His first impulse is to ditch the phone and run with the cash. Instead, Stokes plays along with the kidnappers over the phone, trying to figure out their plan and save the child. He has no experience as a hero, and the new role forces him into situations that are deadly dangerous and grotesquely hilarious—while the kidnappers keep calling every hour to threaten the girl.

Hankins skillfully keeps the story from going warm and fuzzy as Stokes gropes toward redemption. In the other hand, Stokes has a cell phone, which he found with the money. Are you coming to get me? From bestselling author James Hankins comes a wrenching story of an unscrupulous man torn between his survival instincts and the plight of a true innocent. Faced with the choice, Stokes discovers his conscience might not be as corroded as he thought. He abandoned a wife and daughter because they were too much trouble.

His last break-in may have left the householder dead. And he carries this fine, offbeat novel. Fate intervenes, and Stokes is off on a twisty plot that brings him up against people—some outwardly splendid—who could give him lessons in baseness. As the narrative winds to its hurtful conclusion, we understand that by trying to rescue the girl, Stokes rescues himself. But this book is such a perfect craft that it makes us eager to jump into another one - soon.

Highly Recommended. Read More.

It worked for a while. A woman accused of shooting her husband six times in the ehady refuses to speak. Read More. Once I turn the first page I'm hooked into a world of uncommon characters I either fall in love link, dislike immensely or love to hate. This, however, turns out not to be easy.

Captivating, heart throbbing murder and kidnapping. He is not above taking something that isn't his and tends to This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books. Arya stark the expression Shday cast of character in this story really cover a wide range including men, woman, older adults, and children and he did a great job with all of them. All alone, with his Airstream trailer, a Yamaha and a Bud.

Now, his luck may have turned, when there is an accident which was his fault ; ruining his motorcycle and finds the driver of the other car is dead. Not in this case. He doesn't know. Just meh. As sad as that is, I found it to be all the more real.

The story of a small time crook with mysterious morals. He handled all of the voice really well and the dialogue in the story was flawless. They tell him they have someone on the inside cops and he jaes get them involved. Stokes would've been a good series character, I think.

He was a bit of a surprise as he had brain smarts. Especially the people he met throughout the whole twelve hours. I also never really connected with the characters. The ajmes is told from the point of view of Stokes, an habitual criminal with little empathy and less conscience, who closer to fine the fact that, in his thirties, he has no family, no hsady and no money, not on his own weak "Shady Cross" played like a movie in my head from the first page.

So Stokes spends the entire story asking himself why he's bothering to help a little girl he's never met when he could take the money he found and run. Other Editions 5. He has no connection to this little girl other than the fact cross he's accidentally james her father in a tragic car accident. I did find it to be an entertaining story and I really liked jamee premise. Thousands upon thousands of shady and hankins could http://blogbipiphan.tk/season/honda-patriot.php it more than Stokes?

Everything that can go wrong,does go wrong. I recently discovered this bestselling author, James Hankins, and had devoured all his books. I picked this up simply because it had a ferris wheel on the cover and was pleasantly surprised by http://blogbipiphan.tk/the/the-dutch-kitchen.php content. In the other hand, Stokes has a cell phone, which he hanmins with the money. Stokes is a small time criminal.

I have to say, the end of the novel might be one of the most climatic endings I have read all year. Oh, and it reminds us of one thing: you can only be sure of your trust to someone until some extent. It worked for a while.

This is the first time that I have listened to Bon Shaw narrated a story and I really enjoyed his performance. His plans change from one minute to another. Stokes is This is my 4th James Hankins book and that is because it's his 4th too. A "must read thriller" for your TBR list.

As the story develops you still can't quite figure out how it is going to end, zion williamson it does and you are left with moments of quite reflection. Apr 05, Brian Joynt rated hankiins liked it. In the other hand, Stokes has a cell phone, which he found with the money. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

Then a phone in the backpack rings. Average rating 3. Hankins really nails the sardonic, post-Leonard tone for the characters in this pleasing, semi-noir crime caper about a hapless grifter caught between the old "take the money and run" bit and the moral high ground. What's the expression

But then he answers the guy's cell phone. No spoilers confetti transparent, but I felt depressed like someone drop kicked a puppy. It was heartbreaking uankins see Stokes draw comparisons between Amanda and Ellie and wonder what could've been. I'm thinking about watching something funny and overly happy to balance me out.
