However, since it was recorded by Brilliance audio - the performance was the same and the only odd thing is that it is one 3 more tapes than the original unabridged version in this library form in the always unattractive clamshell case. Tapes sound fine.

Strange book. I liked it a lot but the ending sucked.

very interesting read with an ending that is surprising

A real page turner. M

When things are too good to be true, they almost always are and that is the premise of this rather unrealistic book. It starts out well and the story is strong for the first half of the book. The story centers around Gunn Henderson, an enormously successful salesman, who receives an excellent job offer with perks far beyond anything that he had ever expected. As with something this good, there are always many things that will be expected of him as well as sacrifices that will be made by his family. The story loses its momentum when the writer begins explaining the machinations as well as the motivations of the characters behind this elaborate charade. The story is so far fetched that it is laughable in many ways. It is somewhat like a poor B movie, at the sake of being impolite to the genre. Although this book is placed in the Suspense Category, it never really makes it. The characters are not well developed and it is difficult to comprehend one who is successful in his line of work making such a radical career move. All in all, this is fast harmless reading ehich, if taken as such, is passable escapism. It would be folly for the reader to for much more.

I was cleaning out my basement when I ran across a box of older paperbacks. I was not sure if I read this one or not.

I brought it upstairs and needless to say all basement cleaning stopped. I really enjoyed this book. It kept me in total suspense most of the time. I do feel they gave away too many of the plot twists a bit too soon, but found that also intriguing. Wondering how is that going to happen? It was a fun read and much better than a lot of the junk written recently. I find this to be true of many older novels.

I highly recommend for an easy, suspenseful summer read.

Inch by inch, layer by layer, Mr. Simpson builds upon a story that, more than anything else, reveals the frailties of man's character to allow revenge, greed, suggestion, and lust interfere with his own success. The Caretaker shows how even the most elaborate bluff resorts to chaos, manipulation (even by those you'd imagine or appear to be the most unlikely to twist one's life) and death. Allowing hints to creep into the narrative Simpon produces a story that will keep the reader turning the pages, allowing the mind to carve its own story. The ending, though mostly not a surprise, will lend the reader to sigh a big "oh, oh", wishing that the next book by Simpson produces a sequel to The Caretaker. All in all, a book well done.

Since the first page till the end, this book has the perfect crime, "More know the devil for old than for devil", is the first book that I read that since the beginning is telling you part of the finish, that keeps you interested in the story all the time, and as I like from many writers, T.W. Simpson doesn't put Sam like a woman that doesn't know what to do and how to handle any particular situation, I like when the women can defend their selves alone or almost alone, and at the end you will see how to do a perfect crime... many times.
