"The Intruders" by Michael Marshall

Score: 5/5
"Wish He'd Write More"

One of the things I love about Michael Marshall's books is that you're never entirely sure what sort of universe they're set in.  His books can keep you guessing, and just as you're romping through the pages the plot takes a sudden left turn and you end up somewhere completely unexpected.

He does more of this in his science fiction books (he writes as 'Michael Marshall Smith'), but it imbues his thrillers too.  And I think it's great.

I think it's a real shame he doesn't write more.  At the minute I'd buy every book he published, except I've already got them all.  Still, maybe if he published more they'd start becoming blander.

Anyway, I'm not going to give anything away about this book, but I thought it was great and I found it very hard to put down.  If you think I'm always pointing out the bad things in books (like the last two reviews, which weren't very flattering) and I never actually have fun reading them, well this one proves you wrong because I thoroughly enjoyed it.

More like that, please.
