Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

The Globe—38,500 tons of ocean plying opulence housing in its fabulous apartments some of the wealthiest people on the planet.

Reynard Chevalier—The Globe’s security officer. An expatriate American with a new name, a new country, a new life, and a past that is rapidly catching up and threatening to destroy him.

Staff Captain Katarina Giordano—Reynard’s boss during the day, his lover at night.

Jane Hanover—The Globe’s latest resident. The fiancée from Reynard’s previous life. The woman who has sent Reynard’s past careening on a collision course toward his all too vulnerable present.

Charles Hanover, III—Jane’s philandering husband. A man who rationalizes his infidelities by demanding that his wife also find solace outside their marriage.

Security Officer Sarah Brighton—Reynard’s amorous Number 2. A woman too young for Reynard and too determined to accept no for an answer.

Sterling Heyward—The Globe’s reclusive owner and Reynard’s best friend and employer. A man whose enormous wealth was built spilling the blood of others.

The Globe Slasher—A sadistic sociopath with a very large chef’s knife and an insatiable blood lust for the rich and beautiful. A serial killer who has reached into the distant past to find inspiration for his perverse grotesqueries.

Louis Guignard—The French police captain. A man stationed in Saint Barts, hundreds of miles from The Globe. A man walking Reynard through his investigation via a very tenuous internet connection. A man who knows that it is only matter of time before the Globe Slasher turns on the one person aboard The Globe who can stop the slayings—Reynard Chevalier.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Most Excellent Adventure 25 de enero de 2012
Por Max Blake - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
R. Doug Wicker is a witty, talented, entertaining writer with a knack for interesting plot twists and dialogue that snaps, crackles, and pops. With his captive-audience setting and an entertaining cast of characters that keeps you guessing, and then guessing again, the author's latest novel, The Globe, becomes at once a funny, intriguing, serious, and at times even compelling novel. Better still, it's a fast-paced read that ends much too quickly and leaves you hoping for a sequel, or maybe even a couple of sequels. Mr. Wicker is particularly adept in his descriptions and understanding of modern firearms, which is something that is often missing in current crime fiction. I found myself placing a bookmark next to the author's name, where I'll be waiting to sample his next offering of escapist fare. In a word, Bravo.

R. Doug Wicker is a gifted writer. In The Globe, he takes you on a ride from the depths of a luxury ocean liner to the pennacle of the super rich leaving bodies in his wake. Romance, mysterous happenings and the lives of the people onboard intertwine in a most enjoyable read. He keeps you guessing all the way through the book. Don't miss this well-written and intriguing book by R. Doug Wicker. He is my new favorite author.

Well done, R. Doug... Mystery, hero behaving foolishly, guns, hero cooking, knives and not just for cooking, cruise ship condo inhibited by the one percent, high stakes poker, kleptomania, oh - and murders. It all hangs together and makes an entirely enjoyable read.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Delightful, underrated book 22 de diciembre de 2012
Por RW Bennett - Publicado en Amazon.com

The most underrated book I read in 2012 is The Globe by R. Doug Wicker. It's underrated because it's not selling particularly well, but should be. It's a great read. You know when you read a certain book, you just know the author is extremely smart and you would like to have a beer with him? I feel that way about R. Doug Wicker, whom I've never met or communicated with, but would like to.

The Globe is a cruise ship, but not any ordinary one. It's actually a floating condominium, and each cabin has a wealthy owner. Murders take place, and Reynard Chevalier, the erudite security officer must solve them. I love those murder mysteries that take place in a closed environment (the locked room conundrum popularized by Agatha Christie - think Ten Little Indians - and others). There's a finite number of potential victims and suspects. Reynard is inexperienced as a murder investigator, and the number of plot twists tests his abilities.

Wicker handles all this cleverly with great deftness and an elegant writing style. You'll be glad you discovered this delightful gem of a book. Five out of five stars.
