Falling Immortality: Casey Holden, Private Investigator - Robert Downs

Falling Immortality was not a book I enjoyed. The reading became like a chore.

I strongly disliked the protagonist (Casey Holden), I also disliked the constant and aggravating dialogue. The never-ending discussion about who Casey has slept, wants to sleep with, likes the look of or ogles bugged me, his supposed sense of humour grated my nerves.

The women were objectified in this story, they seemed to be fairly stupid, attracted to pig-headed Casey for his 'supposed' charm.

On a positive note, I did like Ian. He was a saving grace with this book. I liked the way he dealt with Casey. I also thought the mystery was ok.

In short, I think Robert needs to target the appropriate audience for this book. It will certainly appeal to some, but not me.

*Note: I was provided an electronic copy of the book in return for an honest review*
