W ith a tag line like ‘The most gripping thriller you’ll ever read’ I was rather curious as to what this book had in store for me. Unfortunately, it did not live up to the hype. .
Premise goes like this: Max is a former coast guard who is in Amsterdam to watch his new girlfriend present her research which will save millions of lives. However before she could do so, she disappears and soon Max is sucked into a plot bigger than he could have anticipated. .
When I read the blurb I immediately likened this book to Dan Brown’s thrillers. I don’t know why I did so but that is where it all went a little downhill. .
It had a solid start but slowly it lost its grip on me. The plot seems slow and confusing. It was missing the essential ‘it’ factor which would have had me turning the pages. While a lot of research had been done for this book, it was the execution which let it down. .
Overall, Bite was a promising book, with a good start and everything going for it, but along the way it loses its grip on its reader. It will appeal to crime fiction and lovers of Thrillers. .
