Reviews Don't Lose Her (Max Freeman, #7)

  • Debbie
    This was just okay for me. It had some action and I stayed worried about the fact they kidnapped an eight month pregnant woman. And I liked that you got three perspectives, the kidnapper, the person kidnapped and the private investigator friend who was looking for her. I still don't understand why they moved her from the warehouse to the Everglades as that part isn't said. It was pretty much a fast paced book and somewhat entertaining. I was surp...

    Don't Lose Her is the 7th Max Freeman mystery, but the first I have read. I was surprised I liked it so much, given that it really isn't the type of mystery I would normally choose. It tends toward the thrillerish and has a bit more action than I go for.US district judge Diane Manchester is eight months pregnant and presiding over the extraditon trial of a Colombian drug lord. Before she calls recess for lunch, he taunts her, almost implying that...

    4.5 StarsFinally! I patiently awaited this 7th installment of Jonathon King"s Max Freeman Series with great anticipation. And with good reason, my cynical loner Max is back! King really built the suspense in Don't Lose Her and never let up until the very last word. The Epitaph indicates the story line might not be finished. I love it! Hopefully the 8th in the series is being written as I write this review. Billy Manchester becomes more human too,...

    I enjoyed this book very much. I really enjoy mysteries and this book was very entertaining. I felt very sorry for the pregnant judge being held hostage. The ending was very good and I was trying to guess what was going to happen through the whole book. I have not read this author before but I would love to read more work by Jonathon King. This ARC book was mailed to me and not many authors send me paperback copies of there work, usually e-books....

    Private eye Max Freeman's case is a kidnapping. Diane Manchester is a federal judge, 8 months pregnant, presiding over a trial of a Colombian drug cartel leader. Eventually, Diane is rescued from a lodge in the Everglades. This was a pretty good story and I may read some more by Jonathon King.

    horrible. One of those books where life really is too short to waste time on finishing it.

  • ItsAboutTheBook
    Review can be read at It's About The Book This book is a perfect example of a beautifully written, flawlessly edited effort by an obviously talented and successful author trying to force a weak story into submission. And the story is weak, in my opinion.The main character, Max Freeman, and most of the secondary characters are strong and well developed. Max is a likable guy, smart and loyal to his friends. One of his friends is Diane Manchester, ...

    The people who kidnapped pregnant Diane aren’t overly cruel–as long as she keeps her hood on and does what they want her to do, they leave her largely alone. However, the rule is that none of the kidnappers can speak within her hearing. There’s one particular person, Rae, who has babysitting duties. Rae is independent, annoyed by having to take care of this woman (also annoyed with Diane’s perceived ‘whininess’)–yet at the same time...

    If you want an abundance of attention really quickly, abduct a Federal Judge … better yet, abduct one who is eight months pregnant. Diane Manchester, US District Judge in south Florida, called for a recess for lunch shortly after the defendant made a veiled threat against her and her unborn child. She’d been presiding over Juan Manuel Escalante’s extradition case. He was a Colombian drug lord. As she steps off the curb heading for a café, ...
  • Wanda Maynard
    A very emotional, nail-biting tale of intrigue. “Don’t Lose Her” was a great title for, what was truly one of the finest mysteries I have read and enjoyed in a long time. The characters were so entertaining, and realistic; especially Max Freeman. If I ever needed a hero, he would be the one I would call on to help me, because when it came to detective work, Max went far beyond the call of duty. He carefully selected the right questions to a...

    A mystery novel tends to capture the intrigue of the reader from the very start – this book was no different – we immediately meet Diane on her home turf of her Federal Courtroom over seeing a Federal Drug Extradition case when an innocent move to go out for lunch alters her day-week-and maybe even her life!

    I received this book via NetGalley.I have never read anything by this author so when I was offered the chance I jumped on it. the blurb sounded pretty good. Now when I noticed that it was book seven I was kind of worried that I wouldn't have a clue who the characters are as we all know previous characters normally always come back to play in a series.This was not the case. I jumped right into the story and I truly enjoyed it. Diane is a judge on ...

    4 STARSThis is the 7th book in the Max Freeman series. It is the first one that I have read. To me it stands alone okay.The suspense is good. I did not know what was the reason for the kidnapping or wither the judge would be rescued in time.I liked Max and how he was willing to do what ever he needed to find his friend and rescue the judge. Max Freeman is a PI Detective who works for Billie. Diane is a federal judge hearing a case about a drug de...
  • Quillracer
    This series is one of my favorites. This newest entry did nothing to change that.King brings the Everglades alive, making the reader feel as if he’s there, in a few well-crafted sentences. And he moves Max’s relationship with Sherry forward a few steps, a much more realistic approach than many authors use.The tension is steady throughout with just enough downtime sections to give the reader a chance to catch his breath.The reason for kidnappi...

    Given To Me To For An Honest ReviewDon't Lose Her by Jonathon King is a must read. This book will grab you as soon as you open it and will hold you down on the edge of your seat as you watch the pages turn and turn and turn some more until the last page. It is action packed and make sure you have some tissue because it is very emotional. You may even shed a tear or two. There is great plot development with a surprise twist at the end that you don...

    I enjoyed reading "Don't Lose Her" by Jonathon King, but after I finished, I was left with a sense of dissatisfaction. Private Investigator Max Freeman is called in to investigate the kidnapping of the wife of his best friend, a federal judge who is 8 months pregnant. King head hops from the judge's POV, to Freeman's to the kidnapper's to give the reader a good understanding of what is happening and to allow us to develop sympathy for all who are...

    Don't Lose Her is suspenseful and well written. I had never read anything by Jonathon King before and didn't realize this title is number 7 in the Max Freeman series. It stood up well as a stand alone, but I plan to go back and read some of the earlier books, now that I've been introduced to the characters.Max is a private investigator in South Florida. He often works for Billy, a super rich lawyer and computer expert. Diane, Billy's wife, is a F...

Oblivious to anything else I read the book in two sittings in one afternoon with only a break for food and drink.The story line centres around the kidnapping of a senior judge and is written from the perspective of many of the main characters. The tension is built as the ...

    Don’t Lose Her by Jonathan King opens up with the kidnapping of a federal judge, Diane Manchester. Diane is the wife of Billy Manchester and is a good friend of Max Freeman, so it is no surprise that Billy contacts Max to be involved in the investigation. I have to confess that I haven’t read any of the Max Freeman series, I believe that this book is the 7th in the series. I will be reading them though, since I loved this book. As I said, the...

    Eight-months pregnant federal judge Diane Manchester is suddenly snatched from a busy sidewalk in Palm Beach, Florida during her lunch break, and although the search is nationwide for the kidnappers, the search is concentrated in South Florida. The motive for the kidnapping is not clear, but the investigation centers around the current case that she is adjudicating, that of the leader of a South American drug cartel leader who was tricked into co...

    This story is about an eight months pregnant federal judge who gets kidnapped. The story alternates between the investigator who is searching for the kidnappers and the judge that has been kidnapped and also one of the kidnappers. The parts of the story that had to do with the perspective of the judge and the kidnapper were interesting, and kept me reading. The parts that dealt with the search for the kidnappers by the investigator, were unintere...
