    1. A jewel thief with a conscience and an old-school detective go head to head as a series of robberies across the United Kingdom escalate.This book is part of a series in which the author poses interesting questions – in this case, what if the bad guy of the story was someone the reader actually felt a great deal of sympathy for? The result is a very enjoyable read, with great characters and a twisting plot. There was a fair bit of introduction, but once the story really got going I found it har [...]

    3. Kerry Donovan and DCI Jones: What a great of a combination!Mr. Donovan has outdone himself in his newest DCI Jones Casebook series. This installment features master safecracker and bad guy Sean Freeman in a rip-roaring police procedural that absolutely rocks! As complex a plot as possible, with several side trips to boot, this story kept me glued to the pages. It is also obvious that Mr. Donovan not only researched the facts and background thoroughly, he created an iconic figure in DCI David Jon [...]

    6. I have really loved the DCI Jones casebook stories, and would recommend to everyone who loves a good crime book, they are really good stories full of life, death, love and tears, stories that grip you so strongly, you become part of the team and not just the reader, plus the excitement goes on right to the last page, in a word-brilliant.

    7. I believe John Grisham is the world's finest story teller and when I read his novels I can see him around a camp fire holding everyone engrossed by his tales. He is also my yardstick for comparison with other authors.By way of comparison Kerry Donovan ticks all the boxes and has the same almost unique skill except that in his case, I can see him in a crowded Dublin bar regaling his audience with on-the-edge-of-your-seat stories.The DCI Jones Casebook: Sean Freeman is riveting stuff where an incr [...]

    9. Very good cops and robbers (British version) procedural. I liked how Donovan told two stories in parallel - one each from the good guys' and bad guys' point of view. There is a main protagonist on each side and we end up rooting for both of them to win. The writing was convincingly believable and the story unfolded with a quick pace. I would like to read more about DCI Jones and his crew.

    12. Reviewed by me as a member of Rosie Amber's Review TeamI read another of Kerry Donovan's books, 'On Lucky Shores' for Rosie's review blog, which I liked a lot, so chose to review this one as soon as it was submitted. Whereas 'On Lucky Shores' is an all-American mystery thriller set in Colorado, this is a traditional British detective type story. I think Donovan's American mode has the slight edge, but this one also stands up well next to the best in its genre.The first part of the novel consists [...]

    15. I have read the other DCI Jones case books and really enjoyed them. This one started slightly differently in that we know who the criminal is and we also know he has a reason behind his actions.By the time he meets DCI Jones the book is almost over but they sort of work together to bring down the real criminal who is DB Parrish, a thoroughly nasty piece of work who deserves everything he gets.The reason I haven't rated this higher is because while there is plenty to get your teeth into there are [...]

    16. This provided a lot of the backstory I was wondering about in the free book #2 in the series. The main antagonist was clever and didn't like violence, which was a nice change from many police procedurals. I didn't mind getting his viewpoint. The viewpoints of the police officers were interesting, too. Recommended for those who enjoy some action-adventure with their mysteries.

    17. Said it was first in series, it wasn't, it was the third, which is annoying. Wasn't that bad just couldn't get into it, skimmed the last bit as just wanted to finish it.
