Review Influence by Chris Parker Publication date 1st March 2014 Publisher Urbane Publications ISBN 9781909273061 Source Publisher Rating 5 5 Synopsis Marcus Kline is the world s leading authority on communication and influence He can tell you what you are thinking He can see inside you He can step inside your mind Yet when a series of murder victims bear the horrific hallmarks of an intelligent and remorseless serial killer, Detective Peter Jones turns to Marcus for help and everything changes As the killer sets a deadly pace, the invisible, irresistible and terrifying power of influence threatens friendships, reputations, and lives When events appear to implicate the great Marcus Kline himself, everyone learns that the worst pain isn t physical Review Wow This book is mesmerising, terrifying and engrossing the carefully crafted characters are rich and multi layered and this makes them utterly fascinating The distinctly different sides of their personalities are revealed with shocking clarity as this rollercoaster of a read hurtles towards its conclusion, leaving the reader no option but to cling on for dear life, before being flung out like a piece of emotional rubbish as the ride ends It s perfectly clear that the author has knowledge of interpersonal and intrapersonal communication in abundance The great attention to detail leaves you in no doubt that these types of communication are supremely powerful, for better or for worse In so looking forward to Believe, the second of Parker s Marcus Kline trilogy I received a free copy of this novel from the publisher, in return for an honest review Couldn t finish, I tried Got to 27% and it was still dragging Interesting left brain right brain concept but the authors pontificating writing style disengaged me every time I picked it up. Chris Parker is obviously a very talented and intelligent author, however, I just couldn t get into this book at all Too much pyscho babble interfered with the story in my opinion and I found it hard to understand and concentrate on.I have already bought the second in the series Belief through the monthly Urbane Book Club and I will give it a go still, but unfortunately Influence just wasn t for me.
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Influence book, this is one of the most wanted Chris Parker author readers around the world.
