    The main character was quite unlikable, shallow and not very believable. The way other characters seemed to idolize him was cringeworthy. No development of the character of the love interest Shane, and the way Reid fell in love with her based only on her looks a testament to the shallowness of the characters. Golf and security bits were good.

    I found this a very average read. Felt the author missed the mark alot with his attempts at sarcasm and humor, I often found myself cringing. The plot was average, characters unbelievable and really the only part I enjoyed was the golf!

    Balkind has created a character who is a believable, flawed and ultimately likeable. Reid is unashamedly human and personality development actually made me smile. The golf passages were beautiful. I felt like I was on the fairway with them. The pressure, the feel, the elation of a sweet hit. Well presented. Made me want to get out there immediately. The climax was sharp and unexpected. I enjoyed the shock of it. Great! A minor negative: I lost track if all the characters. Too many without memorable personalities. Of course, I realised after a while they were incidental and there only to build the tension but for a while I tried keeping track of everyone. Often in crime novels I'm annoyed when the plot deviates from the 'action' or main story. In Sudden Death it was a pleasant aside, introducing some characters I hope to meet again. In particular, the advertising campaign. Well orchestrated and described, I could see the set and you had me completely believing this was a real promotion. A great novel, easy to read, ultimately enjoyable.
