Another review of The Empathy Effect

This review is by Terry Grimwood of Exaggeratedpress and I'm so pleased to say it is yet another favourable one, some of what he says:


There is a hint of Michael Dibdin’s Dirty Tricks here, and a distinct nod towards Leslie Thomas’s Dangerous Davies. But Cooper Jones most definitely Bob Lock’s own excellent creation. It is a bright, satisfying meld of thriller and comedy. Cooper is amiably disreputable and hapless. I can see this working as a one-off television film, the pace and plot construction lends itself beautifully to the visual medium.
Woot! now I've not only been mentioned in the same sentence as Dean Koontz but Michael Dibdin and Leslie Thomas as well! COOL! He goes on to say:

The Empathy Effect then, great , brooding cover art, a neat twist-and-turn plot, murders, psychopaths, nasty abductions, edge of the seat cliff-hangers and compelling characters , what else could you possibly need?

Forget Koontz and forget his book “What the Night Knows” (a ghost vengeance story, been there, done that), instead read a book that’s been BANNED like “America Deceived II” by E.A. Blayre III.
