Comments Shallow Graves

  • Armin Hennig

    24/100Literarische Lehrlingsleistung mit entsprechend vielen handwerklichen Schnitzern und bezeichnenden Schwächen. Motivation war damals schon nicht gerade Deavers Stärke, Bösewichter waren auch schon im Frühwerk Schmutzfinken und Müllsammler, erste Ansätze zur nicht vorhersehbaren Wendung sind ebenfalls erkennbar, gerade beim Finale. Ansonsten typischer Thriller Ende 80er, frühe Neunziger, aber eben aus der Feder eines ziemlich ungeübten Autors.Keine schmerzhafte Leseerfahrung, auch we [...]

    John Pellam was a movie location scout along with his partner Marty as they rolled into Cleary, New York. However, things were bound to get out of hand and go sideways. Seems like in an instant Marty is killed when he's blown up by a car while trying to smoke crack. Pellam knows better that something is very fishy. Pellam soon discovers bullets holes in gas tank of Marty's car. Before Pellam can get very far a car barrels into him sending him to the hospital. The driver, Meg a local real estate [...]

    I like Deaver's thrillers. This is the first of his books that I have read based on John Pellam. Shorter and warmer in character than the Lincoln Rhyme series, I am used to reading. A thoroughly easy and enjoyable read.

  • Jasbr

    An dem Buch hat mich nicht als erstes gereizt, dass es in den USA spielt - das ist bei Thrillern ja nicht unbedingt was besonders. Interessant fand ich, dass es um Kinofilme geht. Wer jetzt aber an Hollywood denkt, liegt falsch, denn die Geschichte spielt in einem kleinen Provinznest und von einem Film bekommt man auch nur die Location-Scouts mit :DWas mir aber richtig gut gefallen hat, war die Atmosphäre in dem Buch: Nach außen ist alles Friede-Freude-Eierkuchen, aber hinter den Kulissen spie [...]

  • Jessica Warland

    3.5 stars for Shallow Graves by Jeffery Deaver. Deaver has such a captivating way of writing, however, his earlier works seem to be missing this and also missing his twists and turns he’s now known for. Nevertheless, I thought this novel was an easy and enjoyable read. I’ll definitely be finishing the trilogy.

    John Pellam is in Cleary, New York to line up locations to film a Hollywood movie. Some residents are excited, hoping to land a part in the film. Other residents - for reasons of their own - want John and his partner Marty to go away forever. Harassment ensues and before long Marty is dead in suspicious circumstances. The town honchos expect John to pack up and leave but he insists on hanging around to investigate his partner's death. In the course of his investigation John meets a variety of pe [...]

  • Michelle Bacon

    One of Jeffrey Deaver's earlier works about a location scout for Hollywood that goes into Cleary, New York and finds a little more than the perfect location for the film Shallow Graves. Pellham's partner winds up dead and Pellham doesn't believe the story he is given of how his partner died. This sends him on an investigation that could cost him his life and his job. A good book, but not Deaver's best. I enjoyed to action and mystery of the story.

  • James

    John Pellam works for a film (movie) maker as a location scout. He stumbles on a small town racket which puts him in harm's way. The characters are quite well developed and somewhat credible. The plot has some twists which keep the reader interested.

  • Tuesday's Child

    Deaver never disappoints.This is an older book, which i found by chance.Pellam is an interesting character, but not as compelling as Rhyme.Still, it is a solid read!

  • The Cats Mother

    I have a sometimes unfortunate compulsion to read everything (OK, almost everything – I can pass on Mills & Boon) that comes my way, and to read all series in order. The third book in the John Pellam series by William Jefferies – which is Jeffery Deaver in disguise – came to me from my book group, so I sourced the first two online and felt I should read them first. This has turned out to be a waste of time and money – when I have so many other books to read, and only limited time in [...]

    GRIPPINGThe tale begins when John Pellam a location scout, arrives in Cleary, upstate New York looking for the scenery of a future movie and meets a hostile town, then some awful things begin to happen to him and to his companion Marty with no apparent reason and instead of leaving town he is determined to stay, look for clues and face everything, these facts set up the mistery. I enjoyed this book, because this colorful story is so well written, that you can feel the tension and hostility again [...]

  • Aries

    Il secondo thriller di Deaver senza i protagonisti storici (Rhyme & Sachs) che posso dire di aver gradito fino in fondo.La storia è abbastanza semplice, almeno nelle premesse: il location scout John Pellam si trova nella classica cittadina di periferia americana come se ne vedono in tanti film e come in tanti film non è il benvenuto; partito semplicemente alla ricerca di luoghi per un film si ritrova ad affrontare una situazione in cui cominciano a capitare troppi strani incidenti per esse [...]

  • Marianne

    Shallow Graves is the first of Jeffrey Deaver’s Location Scout novels. John Pellam is the location scout in question, and his job is to scout for suitable locations at which to shoot movies. He is doing just that in the small upstate New York town of Cleary when he is injured as a pedestrian and his assistant, researching a different location, dies when the gas tank of his hire car explodes. The speed of the “investigation” and the hasty disposal of the burnt car wreck cause Pellam to susp [...]

    I love Jeffery Deaver's books and this is the first in a new sries for me. Really enjoyable.Back Cover Blurb:John Pellam had been in the trenches of filmmaking with a promising career - until tragedy sidetracked him. Now he's a location scout, travelling the country in search of shooting sites for films. When he rides down Main Street, locals usually clamour for their chance at fifteen minutes of fame.But in a small town in upstate New York, Pellam experiences a very different reception.

    September, 2011prefer to pass judgement AFTER I have finished reading this book and not before! : )) So stay tuned! :))01 Nov 2013My goodness! So much time has passed I just discovered that I never came back to complete my review! Well, I must say that I enjoyed the book! It was very well-written, with a pace that was fast but satisfying I must say that it was a good read! :))

  • Matteo Pellegrini

    Abituato ai libri di Lincoln e Amelia in questo ci si allontana molto dal classico modo di narrare di DeaverIl personaggio di Pellam è comunque coinvolgente e ti porta all'interno dell'azione facendotela vivere in prima personaResto curioso ora di leggere gli altri 2 libri con protagonista questo personaggio per vederne gli sviluppi e la crescita

  • Marti

    This was interesting in that it told what a film scout would do. There was quite a lot of violence, not to mention the use of drugs by a 10 year old boy, however inadvertently. Apparently, Jeffery Deaver is planning to use the character John Pellam in a subsequent book, since this one is designated John Pellam, #1. e-book

  • Janai Symons

    This was a fun mystery thriller about a small New York town in which the protagonist wants to film a Hollywood movie. Dangerous things keep happening to him and the people around him. It is clearly early in Deaver's work and not as strong as the later books, but it is fun and well worth the read for thriller aficionados.

  • Kristy

    I only gave it three stars because in the beginning I kept thinking how cliche the storyline was: Movie location scout from LA goes to a small town and the locals try to run him out of town. It ends up taking some twists and turns, and the second half of the book is much more exciting than the first half. Plus, one of the characters is a chemist :)

  • Mai-ana

    A nice easy read to read in the car on my short breaks. Not as twisty turny as some of his other stories, although the twist was there.

  • Tim

    It took a long time to get going and I figured out who the mastermind was early on. Not one of Deaver's best efforts.

  • Susan

    I have this one as an E Book and it seemed to ramble on where the paragraphs and situations should of ended. Poor editing on this made it hard to enjoy the story line.

  • Erik

    It was nice to read yet another Deaver book. His books are easy to read, interesting, and well plotted. This was no exception.

  • Ruth Hill

    It was a slow start and seemed to be somewhat disjointed, but by the end it really pulled me in.

  • Mary

    This was written by Jeffery Deaver under the pseudonym of William Jefferies and published in 1992. Shallow Graves or Shallow Graves John Pellam #1. I wasn't sure what to expect in this series of 3 books after covering all of the Lincoln Rhyme and Kathryn Dance stories. John Pellam is a totally different character and type of story line involving film making. He's in a small town to search for sites that will be featured in a film. The locals are wanting to be in this film. Then tragedy strikes w [...]

  • Andreas Schmidt

    Un libro che mi ha sinceramente sopreso. Parte in maniera lenta, la storia si sviluppa in mille riflessioni dei personaggi, e parlo di un "inizio" che si può dire duri 150 pagine. Al di là dello shock iniziale dei dialoghi messi tra apici (""), cosa a cui non sono quasi più abituato, e al di là dello shock di leggere anche i pensieri dei personaggi, si può dire che dalla seconda metà in poi il libro decolla, si fa interessante e veloce, ho divorato 250 pagine in circa 2 ore. Il giudizio er [...]

    Not so great which was a disappointment. I love page turner books and this isn't one of them.

After John's marriage crumbled, he decided on a new career path and became a location scout with Big Mountain Studios.

    John Pellam, location scout, finds a town, ideal to shoot “Sleeping in shallow graves”. Although the town folk are happy and eager to get a part, there is a strong unseen force that doesn’t want a film to be made and most of all, wants to get rid of them.First there are warning signs and vandalism, next John’s partner falls victim to a horrific “accident” which is covered up and cleared out, in lightning speed, which is totally uncanny for a sleepy little town such as Cleary.John cho [...]
