the man who rode the tiger Reviews
I absolutely loved this book. I highly recommend it and cannot wait for the next book in the series. I challenge you to read the first chapter and not want more!In the opening chapter the reader is hooked when the main character, David Kettering, is told by United States government officials that his daughter has been arrested in China on several charges including capitol offenses, will be facing trial within two weeks, and is facing a most certain outcome of a guilty verdict with a penalty of death. He is also advised there is nothing the government can do. Within a matter of hours he is on a flight to Beijing and his battle to save his daughter begins.The character development is outstanding and truly draws the reader into the story. The author introduces the readers to characters who epitomize integrity as well as some of the most monstrous humans one could imagine; the kind of evil one hopes to never encounter. David Kettering finds himself in an unimaginable battle against the government of China. He is forced out of the country on the day his daughter is sentenced to death, but continues his relentless search for something to trade China for the life of his daughter.As the story unfolds the reader becomes a part of the story feeling the emotions through the written word. It is a story that will cause loss of sleep; it will be impossible to put down. Mr. Sailor, please provide the world with more. Much more!
I could not put it down. This book grabbed me from the start and I am pretty sure that it will have me long after the finish. I can not wait for the sequel. This book is so wonderful and thrilling.I can not stop thinking about the trial system in China. I am not sure that I will ever consider traveling there because of the book. Not only does the criminal system where everyone is guilty distress but then I think about your graphic description of the man purchasing a snake for dinner. That alone will keep me up for many nights to come. However, now I know that I will be staying for days to come reading the Second Son and maybe even finding old clips of Chips.
I heard of this book through a friend, and I wasn't that eager to read it at first, but I was immediately sucked into the swift moving plot. I lost a lot of sleep because of this book, since I normally read right before I go to bed and I couldn't ever put it down. I also don't normally care for politics, but the suspense gripped me til the end. I strongly recommend "The Man Who Rode the Tiger" for anyone who is looking for a fast paced, entertaining read.
I started reading this book and couldn't put it down! Loved learning more about the Chinese judicial system, and the description of Chinese life. More than that, loved the suspense and action of the book. When I had read the first half of the book, thought this is where it should end.....that is actually where the action started.
