Reviews - What do customers think about El Negociador (The O'Malley Series #1) (Spanish Edition)?
Incredible novel!! Apr 27, 2010
Dee Henderson touches your heart with this novel kicking off the tales of the O'Malley clan. You'll find yourself laughing at moments and deep in thought at others. Henderson approaches the struggles many face when tacking a relationship with God with a grace that not only gives you a story but also teaches you something along the way. I couldn't put this novel down. I would say it is a must read. Henderson writes suspense romance better than any other author and is well deserving of her many awards. The Negotiator will push you to consider you own life and send you running to the store, or the this site website, to buy the next book.
Love At First Sight. Feb 7, 2010
Oh, Dee Henderson. You did it again. The first O'Malley book focuses on Kate, the negotiator who seems to find herself in pretty precarious situations. Such as a bomb-strapped man in a bank. As Kate races to solve a mystery centered around a plane that was blown up, she is also confronted with the presence of Dave Richman, the FBI agent who seems to always be around. But when the mystery turns personal for Kate, Dave has to protect her before she walks into a situation she can't talk herself out of. Overall, a great book! Kate and Dave are both fascinating characters, and its a great starting point for the O'Malley series. Dee Henderson manages to craft stories that never seem overly simplified or ridiculous. Such a great book!
And so it continues... Sep 29, 2009
Though The Negotiator is the first in the O'Malley series, it just simply flowed from the prequel. Dee Henderson does romance mets uh oh like the pro that she is. I love and truly enjoy each read. Kate O'Malley and her smooth, yet all-about-business personality got me caught up right away.
Great story line, terrible character development Jun 29, 2009
I am a Christian and I really wanted to like this book. It had an interesting story line in which a woman named Kate O'Malley was working for the police as a negotiator who was called in to hostage situations. She met a man who worked for the FBI and they embarked upon a case in which she was being sited as the reason a criminal planted a bomb that blew up many people. It was an intriguing plot line and the author did well at describing the aftermath of the bombing from the shock of those who witnessed it to the authorities investigating the bombing. The story came to a satisfying ending with all the loose ends being tied up. That's what I did like about the book.
What I didn't like about the book was the difficult-to-believe depiction of the protagonist and the other characters in her life. Kate grew up as an orphan and while in the orphanage, bonded with 6 other orphans who then decided when they grew up to take the same last name of O'Malley and be a family of 7 siblings. Unlikely, but I suppose it could happen. Here's where it gets weird. At the opening of the book all 7 are between the ages of 28 and 38. Only one is a Christian and that was a recent conversion. NONE of them have ever been married. NONE have children. NONE have a significant other except for one sibling. All are extremely good looking and successful (doctors, fire fighter, federal marshal, etc.). This despite the fact that they were taken away from abusive parents. All are obsessively supportive of each other. When they all get together, it's only the 7 of them because NONE of these successful and attractive singles has a spouse or significant other except the one who only met a special someone within the last few months. This is unrealistic in the extreme. In reality if you had a family like this, a few would be married, a few divorced (some more than once), several would have children, and a few of those not married would be living with someone or sleeping around.
Although it would be much more challenging, I'd love to see a book written by the author who depicts a non-Christian family as it really would be. She has the talent to do so. Until that happens, I don't plan to read any more of Dee Henderson's books. I can't take a book like this seriously (or enjoy it) because the main characters were depicted so unrealistically.
Great faith based suspense Jun 13, 2009
I loved this series of books. It's so hard to find good suspense books with a solid religious theme and characters that you really come to care about. Most mainstream suspense novels have little or no faith based inspiration and for me the inclusion of a faith based perspective is what makes the O'Malley series a five star read.
