    One thought on “The Nightmare Thief”

    1. Extremely spoilt Autumn Reiniger was surprised and excited to receive an extreme urban reality game with Edge Adventures as her twenty first birthday gift from her indulgent and wealthy father Lasting the whole weekend with the SFPD being notified in advance that any crime situation in the area was the doing of Edge Adventures and that it was a game they were to ignore all cries for help When Autumn and her five friends were picked up by limo on the morning of the big adventure, the mixture of e [...]

    2. I struggled with the first 9 ish chapters of this book, whilst Gardiner sets the scene for all the action that is about to unfold I couldn t really remember who was who, and thought I wasn t ever going to really care However, once we get into the nitty gritty kidnapping, it turns into a fast paced action thriller which is packed full of non stop action that will keep you turning the pages However, it s much action adventure about survival than thriller.I believe this is the fourth book which fo [...]

    3. This wasn t what I thought it would be I was hoping for horror not action.I guess I shouldn t complain it was one of the many I picked up second hand at the end of a fete all you can carry for a gold coin donation On second thought maybe it wasn t too bad for 20 cents.

    4. In the California wilderness no one can hear you scream.San Francisco Forensic Psychiatrist Jo Beckett doesn t dissect the body or the crime scene she dissects a life and a mind, recreating the victim as a person, piecing together the story of their death to get to the truth And then she goes after the killer.Autumn Reiniger wants something special for her twenty first birthday Daddy s bought her the car and the apartment, but now she wants excitement And what Autumn desires, she gets.Her father [...]

    5. Another Jo Beckett novel Jo is a forsenic psychiatrist, whose specialty is as a consultant to the local police station She is often asked to help determine the psychological status and mind set of individuals who have died She has been consulting on the recent death of a local lawyer, whose body was found in an abandoned mine in the Sierra Mt range Jo contacts a newspaper reporter, Evan who is also trying to determine how he died Between the two of them, they find new leads Jo decides to take a [...]

    6. This is the second book in this series that I ve tried and I don t know what it is about this series I just can t get into I found this book to be extremely boring and predictable The concept of the book was pretty orginal and seemed promising But when I began to read it was a real downer.

    7. This was a good book, but not as good as the previous Beckett novels It was great that the author brought Beckett and Evan Delaney together on a case I liked the Delaney novels and it was good to have her back but there wasn t much substance to the return More of an action book than anything.

    8. This book felt like a gimmick Fans of the Evan Delaney books have been waiting YEARS to find some resolution to the cliffhanger of Kill Chain, but Meg Gardiner has moved on to Jo Beckett Enter The Nightmare Thief, which promised to include Evan Delaney and Jesse Blackburn in the fourth Jo Beckett book Sounds promising enough, right Both Evan and Jesse appear in the first chapter, and though things haven t changed between them, Jesse is in town SF arguing before the 9th circuit, so we think yay, [...]

    9. The dialogue was difficult to get through And I was hoping for forensic psych related stuff I think I might have probably gotten into this book if I had read any of the other books because it seemed a continuation of a previous story or stories The story does get momentum about half way in.

    10. OMG WOW I swear I m hyperventilating from the suspense psycho action to the end of this book This author is amazingly talented Indeed, the characters come to life, the pages turn themselves You just need to remember to breath, seriously

    11. Very slow to start Too many characters in too short a time and I almost gave up on it Was a book club book so stuck with it Does start to engage you near the end of the first third and is stronger in the second half.

    12. This is another installment of the Jo Beckett series Jo is a forensic psychologist and consultant to the SFPD and is called in when the cause of death cannot be determined She examines the background of the victim to see what was going on in his her life to see if there are any missing pieces that can help the police determine what has happened In this novel, Jo and her boyfriend and pararescueman boyfriend, Gabe Quintana, are looking into the suspicious death of lawyer Phelps Wylie who was foun [...]

    13. I m catching up on my Meg Gardiner reading I ve read all of her books published before this one Like all of Gardiner s books, The Nightmare Thief certainly did not disappoint.While the book remains primarily a Jo Beckett thriller, The Nightmare Thief brings together Gardiner s two heroines Jo Beckett and Evan Delaney to collaborate on a case While the collaboration is brief, it is memorable and hopefully a precursor for the future where they will fully collaborate on a case Jo s investigation in [...]

    14. Spoiled rich kid Autumn Reiniger wants something special for her twenty first birthday Her millionaire father obliges by arranging the ultimate urban reality game for Autumn and her friends Edge Adventures take care of all the game preparations, including tracking Autumn and her friends to get a handle on their personalities, and alerting the police that the game is in progress so they won t intervene But someone else has also been tracking Autumn, and decides that the start of the game, with th [...]

    15. What a Woman Jo Bennett, the heroine, is investigating a suspicious death in the wild, mountainous terrain of the Sierras, when she and her boyfriend Gabe stumble across a group of teenagers being abducted and held to ransom by a group of assorted villains Autumn Reiniger, spoilt little rich kid, thinks she and her friends are on an adventure weekend arranged by her not terribly nice father, but in fact the baddies have taken advantage of this scenario to carry out their nefarious scheme.Trapped [...]

    16. I thought this was the best of the series yet Tang doesn t show up much, but she is placed in a critical position I like the pop culture references, though I worry they will date the books I also liked it that Evan Delaney, from Gardiner s other series, shows up and helps solve the case.June 2014 I read this again I decided to read the Evan Delaney novels and wanted to end up with the all the stories fresh in my mind when I got to this book as it contains both characters In terms of Evan, this b [...]

    17. The Nightmare Thief is like a Hunger Games for grown ups This being my first novel from Meg Gardiner, I didn t know the characters, though she has three other novels for Jo Beckett, the forensic psychologist that while investigating a murder, gets caught up in an ultimate urban reality game And Evan Delaney, an investigative journalist, who tries to help solve the case on the other end of the danger, has five novels of her own.The urban reality game sets up a simulated drug deal, manhunt and jai [...]

    18. Fate plays a big part on this suspense thriller by intertwining two separate events that end up being parts needed to complete the final puzzle.Jo Beckett, a forensic psychiatrist and her partner Gabe Quintana went to investigate the death of an attorney that was ruled as accidental in an abandon mine in the mountains in California At the same time, Autumn Reiniger the daughter of a millionaire financial investor, received her 21st birthday gift A reality adventure provided to her and a group of [...]

    19. I was looking forward to finishing this book for some time I ve been a fan of both the Jo Beckett and Evan Delaney series, and when I discovered back in 2014 that it was a crossover title that featured both of them, I decided to get caught up on the Evan Delaney series first since it was obvious I was missing back story So this book was started and stopped twice actually, a second time when I had forgotten why I stopped reading it in the first place.It was a good one It s been a few weeks since [...]

    20. Why this book sucked 1 I didn t realize it was a series So there was backstory I didn t have and it was confusing when the author was talking about people like I was supposed to know them.2 20 words in 2 prose Totally out of place words in a cheap novel.3 From the little research I did, I don t think Hummer limos usually have a luggage compartment But this was kind of important, since a dead guy got stuffed in there 4 spoiler What happened to the snakes She was carrying them, then she wasn t spo [...]

    21. On the EdgeI am even starting to like that monkey, Mr Peebles I think Ferd is a great, if entertaining, neighbor to Jo Beckett, M D forensic psychiatrist He has all those great, nerdy, computer skills All the characters are just themselves whether they be friend or foe, brave or cruel, wise or foolish And the action is fast, bloody, and realistically gritty Jo and her lover, Gabe Quintana, prove themselves equal to the task of dealing with a kidnapping gone awry Their ability to prioritize a pla [...]

    22. It wasokay The story wasn t as thrilling as espoused on the cover surprise , the characters took too long to develop to where I might like them a bit, the secondary story with the alternate investigators took too much time away from the action and I was pretty disappointed Maybe if I had read the Jo Beckett books before this one but given all the time we spent on Jo Beckett I kinda don t get the impression that she s developed as a character a lot in the previous ones It also suffered from Profe [...]

    23. This is a Jo Beckett Thriller that also features Gardiner s other adventure heroine, Evan Delaney in a tale that centers on An Extreme Reality Experience A very wealthy hedge fund manager arranges a birthday party for his daughter and five of her friends in which they will be featured players in a role playing urban reality game , but Edge Adventures, the company that hosts the event has been usurped by a band of criminals who are using the game to mask a multi million dollar kidnapping The plot [...]

    25. This book was incredibly fast paced and would be an awesome way to blow through a few hours if you were stuck with an airport layover or something like that the time will fly by before you realize it So why only two stars Because after I finished it, nothing about it stuck in my brain The characters were generic, the villains were garden variety psychos, and none of the plot twists really felt unexpected The whole thing was just veryh Very action packed, but not much substance Also, thanks to a [...]

    26. Autumn and her friends are in for one hell of an adventure Or so they thought on her 21st birthday, her father books an fantasy adventure for her and her friends hoping it will help her grow up He had experienced one and thought it would be just what she needed Except things go wrong and the fantasy becomes reality when the kids are kidnapped for real The cops were notice din advance that it was a game But forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett stumbles across the kidnapped kids while investigating an [...]

    27. I couldn t finish this book I read about 100 pages, and then I gave up I really enjoyed the Evan Delaney series, so I had read the Jo Beckett series, hoping that they would be as good They weren t, but they were still good enough to be entertaining This book, however, was not entertaining It felt like the author was trying to drum up interest by including Evan Delaney even though this was supposed to be a Beckett novel Then, the author mentioned in one way or another that the characters needed t [...]
