    Many thanks to Netgalley and Legend Press for an ARC of Before It s Too Late by Jane Isaac, in exchange for an honest review Before It s Too Late is the latest crime thriller from Jane Isaac, whose previous second book, The Truth Will Out , was nominated as a Thriller of the Month novel, published in 2014 This is my first book my Jane Isaac but it won t be my last This is a British police procedural crime thriller, about a Chinese student, Min Li, who goes missing after an argument wit Many thanks to Netgalley and Legend Press for an ARC of Before It s Too Late by Jane Isaac, in exchange for an honest review Before It s Too Late is the latest crime thriller from Jane Isaac, whose previous second book, The Truth Will Out , was nominated as a Thriller of the Month novel, published in 2014 This is my first book my Jane Isaac but it won t be my last This is a British police procedural crime thriller, about a Chinese student, Min Li, who goes missing after an argument with her boyfriend.A quote from Min Li Where was this black hole I concentrated hard, desperately listening for something familiar, the sound of life I heard no traffic, no voices Just my own breaths and the wind whistling through branches that felt as though they were planted in the ground above The thought made me shiver I am buried alive My heart went out to her, to endure this situation Detective Inspector Will Jackman is currently investigating the disappearance and murder of Ellen Readman, a 22 year old that disappeared when he receives a call that another missing person misper has been reported, a twenty year old Chinese exchange student called Min Li Jackman is removed from the Readman case and assigned by his boss Superintendent Alison Janus to the Min Li case But are there links to the previous case A possible serial killer This novel quickly turns into a kidnapping case when the ransom demand is made Alternating chapters switch between first person, Min Li s private thoughts from this concrete pit, her fears and desperation, and also the third person, dealing with the investigation and its obstacles This definitely makes for a chilling reading.For me, the story, seemed to have something of a slow start but then really picked up in the latter part of the novel, which I really enjoyed I read a lot of crime thrillers which means that I am probably farcritical than most readers I also have read some exceptional thrillers this year, which also influenced my rating I definitely recommend this novel to those who enjoy reading British crime thrillers police procedurals

    I am against the general public so far with this book, mostly getting five star reviews I think it s because I read a lot of crime with similar themes abduction, kidnapping that I am able to compare and sift the REALLY good from the average This book I put at just above average compared to others I have read that have thrilled me from page oneI am buried alive.Following an argument with her British boyfriend, Chinese student Min Li is abducted whilst walking the dark streets of picturesque I am against the general public so far with this book, mostly getting five star reviews I think it s because I read a lot of crime with similar themes abduction, kidnapping that I am able to compare and sift the REALLY good from the average This book I put at just above average compared to others I have read that have thrilled me from page oneI am buried alive.Following an argument with her British boyfriend, Chinese student Min Li is abducted whilst walking the dark streets of picturesque Stratford upon Avon alone.Trapped in a dark pit, Min is at the mercy of her captor Detective Inspector Will Jackman is tasked with solving the case and in his search for answers discovers that the truth is buried deeper than he ever expected.But, as another student vanishes and Min grows ever weaker, time is running out Can Jackman track down the kidnapper, before it s too late I felt the plot to be a bit slow with this book, once the abduction takes place the investigation and subsequent interviews etc seem a bit drawn out and predictable, possiblyfocus on Min in her underground trap might have made this book a bitsomething for me I did enjoy it but I just meandered along with it I did not connect hugely with any of the characters, finding them a bit paper thin really, not much depth to any of them I also figured out quite early on what the kidnappers final moves where going to be and was correct.I can t quite even express why I didn t wholly click, I just think it did not have enough of the dark factor for me, that real psychological stuff where you are right there, feeling it all But in saying that I keep thinking this is not a bad book so I am struggling slightly with this review Sinister and page turning the cover states, not for me.What was good was the latter quarter of the book, the pace picked up, the investigation gathered interest and ground, the psychological dynamics of Min and her captor got interesting and there are some fast paced exciting moments All in all, readable but not the best in this category of book I have read 3 stars from me, liked it but did not love it Sorry to those that raved I always promise to be honest Forof my reviews, book chat, giveaways you can find me at thanks to the publisher for my copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Before It s Too Late is the second novel I ve now read from the pen of Jane Isaac and once again I enjoyed her book immensely.Set in areas I know around the Midlands, we re introduced to a new character, DI Jackman A very likable character protagonist who I would want fighting my cause in my corner Not that I want to get into trouble or anything A married detective with one daughter, he has a backstory that is both sad and touching To saywould be too much so I ll leave that bit ther Before It s Too Late is the second novel I ve now read from the pen of Jane Isaac and once again I enjoyed her book immensely.Set in areas I know around the Midlands, we re introduced to a new character, DI Jackman A very likable character protagonist who I would want fighting my cause in my corner Not that I want to get into trouble or anything A married detective with one daughter, he has a backstory that is both sad and touching To saywould be too much so I ll leave that bit there.The book starts out with the kidnapping of a young Chinese college student, Min Li, who has come to the UK to further her studies and gain some valuable experience in the big wide world She has made lots of friends, has a boyfriend, is popular and a lovely girl to have around Thrown into a dark pit in what seems like the middle of nowhere she cannot understand why this is happening to her Cold, baffled, scared out of her wits the story cuts to Min s thoughts and experiences as the book moves along It is of course Jackman s job along with his colleagues to find out why she has been kidnapped and therein begins the investigation What I liked here is that we re given an interesting insight into the chinese culture without it being the same old cliches that we re familiar with Min s backstory was interesting, giving us details of expectations and a different way of life Similarly too with the Chinese quarter in the Midlands, a closed community who rarely open up to the outside world and always proceed with extreme caution in whatever they do It really was a fascinating view and handled well by Ms Isaac The book is essentially a police procedural but it is a procedural that is done extremely well Never did I think suspension of disbelief was needed or was I thrown in oh really land Everything was told in a realistic and believable fashion At first I liked that settings and placements were areas I m familiar with then reality kicked in and I m thinking nooo I don t want to think about crime around me and promptly jumped back into my oblivious bubble If only Overall, this is a good story told well I did for a good long while think I knew who the perpetrator was I was wrong, though I did work it out eventually That said, it did not detract from the enjoyment of the book at all.I really do like the character of Jackman and hope that there will beto come from this reliable, get the job done DI There s a big hint there Ms Isaac It is indeed a book I highly recommend and hope others will enjoy it too My thanks go to the author, publisher and NetGalley for the ARC

    Coming from Warwickshire myself I always like to read books set locally so I was pleased to pick up this crime procedural set in Stratford upon Avon, only 25 miles from where I live As the action moved between Stratford, Northampton, Leamington and Birmingham it was fun to pick out all the landmarks and routes that are mentioned Chinese Student Min Li has disappeared and D I Will Jackman is appointed to solve the case Is there a link between her disappearance and that of another young local g Coming from Warwickshire myself I always like to read books set locally so I was pleased to pick up this crime procedural set in Stratford upon Avon, only 25 miles from where I live As the action moved between Stratford, Northampton, Leamington and Birmingham it was fun to pick out all the landmarks and routes that are mentioned Chinese Student Min Li has disappeared and D I Will Jackman is appointed to solve the case Is there a link between her disappearance and that of another young local girl a couple of weeks previously When a further student goes missing Jackman knows he is going to come under pressure to solve the case quickly.The story, for me, seemed to have something of a slow start but then really picked up for the second part which I really enjoyed That was the point at which the main suspect started to come under suspicion and I realised that this wasn t an open and shut abduction case, there was a lotgoing on in the background It is told mainly from the perspective of Jackman himself and I liked the way we really got under his skin as we watched him juggle his work with his home life We also hear from Min Li as she relates the story of what has happened to her and also about her past and family life There were a couple of episodes narrated by the abductor and maybe it could have done with hearingfrom that angle, to addin the way of tension and suspense.There are twists and turns and red herrings along the way in a story that is a quick read and which kept me interested right to the end Thanks to the publishers for the review copy

    Oh I couldn t wait to read the latest book by Jane Isaacs, so when the proof book for review came through the post, I know this book isn t out yet, but I HAD to read it This is just intense, just so intense We have this girl trapped, she is in such a small hole, I felt so bad for her, I could hardly breathe just reading it I was imagining the dirt, the aches and pains she had where she couldn t stretch out You know, then I thought, I wouldn t feel like that if the author didn t write so wel Oh I couldn t wait to read the latest book by Jane Isaacs, so when the proof book for review came through the post, I know this book isn t out yet, but I HAD to read it This is just intense, just so intense We have this girl trapped, she is in such a small hole, I felt so bad for her, I could hardly breathe just reading it I was imagining the dirt, the aches and pains she had where she couldn t stretch out You know, then I thought, I wouldn t feel like that if the author didn t write so well and MAKE me feel this way Jane Isaacs has a wonderful way of keeping the suspense going Before you know where you are, you are actually IN the book Your world around you takes on a blur, well, mine did I m not giving the game away on this book as I need you to PRE ORDER click for yourself If you like crime, thriller, suspense and edge of your seat moments, then you won t go far wrong with this one.I ve already chatted to 2 of my closes book buddies online about it, and they can t wait to read it.The bit in the blurb which says I am buried alive you just can t skim over, your brain takes that in The thoughts from this girl who is trapped just keeps you shallow breathing and hurting for her.I love that its set in Stratford upon Avon a beautiful country village type of town, that is why I have added some photo s, you can see the surrounding.Detective Inspector Will Jackman is the man that leads the case But time is running out and all is not what it seems.Imagine yourself in this part of the Country when you read this, a quiet little place where nothing really happens I want to say thank you to Jane Issacs publisher for sending me a proof copy for advanced reading
