In a word: appalling. The sentence structure, use of grammar and literacy in general is akin to that of a low-level primary school student; the characters are two-dimensional caricatures; none of the dialogue is believable; and the narrative requires no thought or imagination whatsoever, i.e. everything is spoon-fed to the reader (and with far too many superfluous and misplaced words). I found this book in a $6 bargain bin - I want my $6 back.

Utter ... bilge.

I rarely give up on a book, but by page 70-odd I wanted to hurt myself. This book SO badly written I am amazed it got published .. then I read the blurb about the author.

'Death Trip' is as dirty and gritty as it gets while maintaining a mainstream facade. Laced with vivid imagery and provocative prose, the third instalment in the Johnny Mann series delves deeper into Mann's history and quest rid the world of all its evils one case at a time.


As the title suggests, Death Trip is just that, as 5 unassuming youths travel to parts of Thailand ravaged by tsunami on a volunteer mission of goodwill. However, NAP, the agency responsible for placing them isn't as clean an

This was the first Johnny Mann book I've read and it won't be the last. A gripping take about 5 young overseas volunteers who are abducted by a psychopath and his men in Thailand, Deathy Trip follows Mann's desperate quest to find them.

A bit grisly at times and not for the faint hearted, this book had me hooked. Johnny Mann is a complex character with a lot of mileage in him.

The one criticism I do have is the continual use of phrase like 'was sat' and 'was stood.' I found them grating and they

At first I was bored with reading this, then I though about giving it a chance - glad I did. Though it was quite gory, it was a good story with a good twist. I was a bit disappointed in the end when we started to focus less on the characters (where as before it was too much details about the characters) - this needed to be addressed.

Good Read all round.

Not sure about the writing where Lee introduces too many characters in a short period of time across several countries, which can be hard to keep track. Eventually the story picks up and it gets more violent and sexual (one of Lee's common darker themes, I believe). But I did enjoy the twist at the end.

Intriguing

I found this book remarkably intriguing. Unlike anything I have read before. It had twists and turns that kept
my mind gripped till the end. Lee Weeks is a very talented writer.

Sort of enjoyed it but its a little too sick for me. I downloaded several by Lee Weeks and not sure I want to read then all now. I think the plot went over the edge a little but did manage to read to the end.

Graphic. Violent. But compelling.

An entertaining enough read, especially after having read a few rather heavy books, a bit of escapism was just what I needed.

I was born in Devon of Welsh parents. My father was a detective, my mother a nurse. I left school with just one O level in Art and by seventeen I was living in Sweden.

I loved reading Henry Miller whilst listening to Neil Young. I travelled in France and settled in Germany at twenty-one, where I worked in a bar. I came back to the UK to study for a year or two and then went to live in Hong Kong. T
