Gregory (gregamused) | 20 comments Okay, I just finished this one (and reviewed it). But I wanted to ask others here, how they felt this stacked up against other HCC books? I found it interesting to read some of the other reviews after I reviewed it. I didn't like the way Faust tried to talk the reader into believing that the lead character (Angel) was smart and then most of her actions didn't enforce that fact. That's one thing The other thing is that I found the last killing (by electrical tape?) pretty unbelievable. Okay, maybe with duct tape it could work but I've used a lot of electrical tape and most of it doesn't stick well enough to create a sealed vacuum.

Jim (jimmaclachlan) You pretty much pegged my take of it, Greg. Angel had to be tough & smart to get where she was, running an agency & on her own when 99% of her colleagues didn't make it. Yet suddenly she got stupid for the whole book. That didn't make sense.

It wasn't just her intelligence, but many of the motivations for her & the bad guys seemed off. I kept having to suspend my belief as the situation lamely twisted from one place to another. I felt that several scenes were tossed in for effect or space. The final murder scene was icing on the cake - it was poorly done.

It was a surreal read. Usually when so many items are off, so is the rest of the writing. I actually thought the writing was quite good. The description, dialogue & all was great.

Dan Schwent (akagunslinger) | 125 comments I liked Money Shot but there were some definite flaws. I didn't understand why she didn't go to the cops in the beginning.
