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.

It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime. But it became a journey into hell…

'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...more

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...more

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.
Jessica
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.

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.
Craig
An entertaining enough read, especially after having read a few rather heavy books, a bit of escapism was just what I needed.
Teena
More scientific then creepy until you reach the end and then the ultimate test... Loved it
