Here’s another contender for the best opening line to a book: “MOST PEOPLE WOULD think getting bit on the balls by a water moccasin while sitting on the toilet in their own home would be the worst thing that could happen that day.” Sam Case learns the hard way that not helping Donovan Creed may reap all sorts of bad things. Including the fake amputation of his leg.

Again, I really am enjoying John Locke’s Donovan Creed series. And what a deal: all are available for $.99 for your Kindle. As I hav

Donovan Creed is not a nice guy. He's an assassin for hire with his own set of rules. Because Creed is often used by the government for unsavory work, he gets a lot of leeway (and support) in his non-government work.

In general, the Donovan Creed series is a quirky, twisted, roller-coaster thriller ride. Often the dialogue is cheesy, the action over-the-top and the protagonist (anti-hero?) bigger than life, but the book still manage to be a fun, quick and mindless read. These are the books you ca

I have some new things to talk about; yes besides the stuff I yapped about last week, yes, it is true. New stuff already! Here is the deal; I am adding a new segment to my blogtalk show, it is going to be all about writing process. Basically a panel of authors is going to discuss a facet of writing each month and hopefully something new can be learned and we can each get something from it. Let’s face it, gas is going through the roof, trying to get to one of these authorfests is tough and costly ...more

This one was the best Donovan Creed so far. I was hooked within minutes.

Even when I'm reading other books, I reach for Donovan Creed first.

Yes, he's twisted. Yes, it's full of ridiculous scenarios.

But this book is a wild, fun ride on an adventure roller coaster.

Every page leaves waiting for the next surprise.

I especially love how Donovan is becoming nice, dare I say? I love his character. And I love John Locke's writing.

The only thing that keeps it from five stars is my own ego. How can I g

Throughout the series, Locke's books have mutated into quirky pieces of "art". Well art might be a strong word but let me explain. As with most art, you stand back in admiration of somebody else's creativity. That is the same way I feel when reading a Creed novel.

Even though this book was short and sweet, with under 200 pages, it still had a lot of action, sharp humor and skin-crawling suspense. It is a bit cheesy (yet funny) that Creed makes numerous references to "a book he's read (or will wri

Another unpredictable book from John Locke. Following the journey to track down his kidnapped girlfriend, Donovan Creed exercises his great powers at breaking into homes and cutting off legs to bring about the extraction of information from those who always know what is best for mankind. One lesson of this novel is that government officials who are willing to allow you to make a sacrifice for the good of humanity don't want to be the first in line for that stuff. Don't miss this book.

Absolutely wild, laugh out loud fun to read. I recommend for anyone looking for a quick read with non stop action.
Continuing with my pursuit of the lone Hero (see reviews for Joe Pike novels, John Rain novels, and Jack Reacher novels) Donovan Creed is probably the most unique character I came across.

I'd never heard of John Locke until I received my Kindle DX in the mail. Locke made his fame and fortune self-publishing his books in the Kindle world. For the Kindle, his books are ridiculously inexpensive (around $0.99 to $1.99). I was surprised at what I read and hooked from the start. Unlike my other series

Another roller coaster that never disappoints . There is a reason he is a best selling Author and has a loyal cadre of OOU's following his very new release .

A new Author creating the same buzz and sharing similar rankings .

I'm not going to lie...the Donovan Creed series has very little literary value... I felt like I was potentially getting dumber as I read them:)

That being said...they are short, entertaining (in that perfectly mindless sort of way...I enjoy a good mindless read occasionally), and best of all, they're only .99 each on the Kindle! Most entertaining $7 I've spent in awhile...and the 7 books lasted me a full week:)

This was my first John Locke novel. It was quite enjoyable right up until I got to the final chapters - the intrigue fell apart and I think he had a difficult time ending the novel, however the last paragraph builds the intrigue right back up for the next book. I think I will try the first novel in the series to see how that book was since A Girl Like you is actually book 6 of the series....

Another solid, fun story from John Locke. Not that murder, mayhem, extortion, kidnapping, and government conspiracies are usually thought of a fun topics, but when someone like Donovan Creed is involved... Scratch that. There is no one like Donovan Creed. A highly enjoyable story filled with twists, turns, and switchbacks. Hang onto your seat, you're in for a wild ride.

‘A girl like you’ is the first book I bought on my new Kindle. This is like renting ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ the first time you go the video store (which I also did). Did I like the story? I am shocked by the entertainment value of Mr. Creed’s adventures. What a great way to discover talented authors.

I hadn't read a donovan creed novel before. It was a stunningly fast read. I liked the story ok, but I didn't love the characters. Maybe I had to read the other ones first to get to know Creed better. One thing, I feel like I have a pretty good idea of past books so I suspect to read these in order might be a little frustrating because there is probably a fair amount of rehashing past stories

once I started Donovan Creed (or whatever his name is) i was hooked. John Locke is a truly LOL writer. his stories are delicioulsy unbelievable (and i do mean unbelievable) in the most entertaining, thrilling and gripping way. i have them all, and read them back to back.

good again. rather addicting. not HUGE on the 'back story,' but we're getting bits and pieces. His girlfriend's husband, Sam, long out of the picture, continues to figure a bit too prominently for my liking. Creed is his usual superman-self. Doesn't dissapoint.

Was trying to read this last night in bed & my wife said if you are going to keep laughing go to the couch. So off to the couch I went to finish reading the antics that Donovan Creed was getting into.
This series just keeps getting better & better.

This was the first book by John Locke. It was chosen a book club reading. The book was fun and I love Donovan Creed. He's something. You can't really describe him. Locke did an excellent good with Donovan's character. I love suspense and murder mysteries.

The book was a great read, honestly I'm a little pissy about the ending, but even that I'll chuckle about. Loved Donovan's character. Everyone meshed well and the humor was just in the right places. Definitely worth the time and effort to enjoy it. Great job!! I definitely recommend it!

I loved this book in the Donovan Creed series better than Saving Rachel: I really enjoyed the Spanish Flu angle and would've liked to read more of the scientific side.

As one person wrote, this is not literary genius. However, it is simple fun and entertainment. Thought this was the best one, then I read the next in the series...

This book really kept you moving through it, just like most of his books. But then it just kind of ended. All the build up and no big ending.
