Reviews - What do our customers think?
First Bunn book  Dec 11, 2007
I have to say I really enjoyed this book although the story was a bit confusing at times. If I had to be tested on it after I finished I'm not sure my grade would be very good. The main character Matt was touted as being this super guy but ended up with more flaws then interstates of St. Louis. (If you've ever been there you know what I mean.) I would have liked for the romance to be left out or seriously downplayed although it was helpful in seeing the growth of the characters. There are plenty of romance books on the shelf so there was really no need for it. If you're looking for Christian fiction you won't find much here but it is clean enough for your teenagers to read. I'll try reading more by this author since I can't judge by one book. If you get it on sale you won't be disappointed.

1 Star = I've been robbed!
2 Stars = Why'd I finish it?
3 Stars = Good
4 Stars = Excellent
5 Stars = Life changing
Great Mystery/Suspene Novel  Apr 17, 2007
What I like about Davis Bunn is that he doesn't "dumb" down his books but requires you to think. Instead of having a good idea "who done it" at the beginning, the plot keeps you guessing with clues from the US to Europe. Matt's "gift" was a little Mission Impossible-ish, but it was fun to read about. Two Thumbs up!
Unrealized Potential  Feb 16, 2007
'Imposter' is a story that had the potential to be very good, but it didn't quite work out.

The story focuses on Matt Kelly who is a rookie federal agent. He is walking up to his mother's house with her when she is killed by an explosion at the front door. He then has his father (a U.S. senate candidate) pull some strings to help him be able to investigate the case.

There are several parts of the story that are mentioned but just left hanging with no real explanation ever given. Some of these are as follows: Matt and his father having a strained relationship, Matt being emotionally disconnected from virtually the entire human race, Matt having moved around a lot as a child. There are others too.

Some parts of the story were quite action packed and kept my interest. Overall though, this was just average.
Plot is complex, confusing and leaves many questions unanswered  Jan 23, 2007
Imposter is a political/police thriller by best selling Christian author Davis Bunn. This is the third book I've read by the author (Elixir, Lazarus Trap) and all three have their own unique style, voice and message. Imposter is written as traditional political thriller. Matt Kelly is coming home with his mom after grocery shopping. Matt's mom opens the front door to the home and is blown to bits by a bomb. Matt Kelly isn't any ordinary guy. He's a thirty year old heartthrob who works for State Department Intelligence. He's smart, good looking, and tough as nails, and also mysterious and reclusive. Matt's father Paul is the democratic canditate for the Senate in Maryland and the election is only 8 days away. Matt pulls some strings to get the chance to investigate the murder of his mom before the killer strikes again.

The blurb on the back of the book says "Matt Kelly's knack for concealing his identity is his greatest asset as a Federal Agent. But when an assignment gets personal, but when the assignment gets personal, discovering who he really is may be the toughest mission of all." Unfortunately, after reading the novel, I still don't know who Matt Kelly is, nor why a lot of things happened in the novel. First, the plot complex and intricate, the kind you would expect in a political thriller. Second, the characters are all interesting. Matt is a great agent who loved his mom but never got along with his dad. While investigating the death of his mom, he works with a veteran cop and a beautiful rookie cop that is already in trouble with the police hierarchy.

For me, the novel didn't work because nothing was resolved. There were several questions the novel brought out? Why was Matt so reclusive and why did he have a bad relationship with his dad were just a few and they weren't answered. Now, I've read a lot of thrillers, and enough to know that I don't need everything spelled out for me, but in Imposter, the author really needed to go a step further in explaining things. Almost every single scene concluded with a cliffhanger. Some were big and some were minor, some related to the plot and some related to character development. For me, it seems like every single one of these scenes could have used another line to explain it. Because the next scene would occur and the cliffhanger would have apparently been resolved, yet I had no idea what the resolution was. To me, there was just too much implied, too much to be inferred, too much of the details left unexplained.

This book has received mostly positive reviews, so maybe I'm off base. Still, I think that despite all of its obvious strengths, the novel just doesn't work for me. If Matt Kelly is the "Imposter", I think I should be able to know why he is called that. I should know why Paul Kelly despises his son. And I should be totally confused about the Vietnam subplot pushed on me the last fifty pages of the book. I've enjoyed other Bunn novels, just not this one, and plan on reading him again. The Imposter just wasn't one of the better ones.
A Good Read  Jan 16, 2007
If you action/mysteries/cop thrillers - you'll like this book. The author writes well, plots well, and his writing has a clarity I find admirable. I would have given it five stars except that the writer kept harping on the hero's inability to express emotion. That would have been okay too except that it interrupted the novel's flow and was never sufficiently explained nor satisfied in the story. Must every detective in fiction be a reformed drunk, addict, depressed, suffering from some loss or trauma, etc, etc?? This is annoying when carried to the length that this author takes it. But - aside from that - a really entertaining read.
