Comments Flight of the Hornbill

  • Wendy

    Although Flight of the Hornbill is #3 of the Ray Sharp series, it is the first one for me. This novel has all the characteristics of a good suspense: twist and turns, greed, beat downs and sex. Lots of sex. It also has some delicious description of native food. Ray is no longer a journalist, but a Corporate Investigator. His new employer has sent him to Indonesia to investigate some shady company who may or may not have found gold. Stone does a beautiful job describing Indonesia's culture, atmos [...]


  • Carl Brookins

    Stone is a good writer, his evocation of an exotic setting is excellent. In fact it is the main driving force in this very dark and seamy steamy novel. It is set in parts of Indonesia where foreign men seem to prey endlessly on the native women and there is more sex per chapter than I've seen in recent crime fiction.

    Ray Sharp is separated from his wife, Sylvia, and would love to be divorced but Sylvia isn’t cooperating. At least she wasn’t cooperating but now she wants something from Ray. Sylvia needs him to locate her missing boy friend, Alexander Lee Truscott. Due Diligence International employs Ray, and he is in Jakarta to conduct an investigation for a Hong Kong investment bank. The investigation involved Motex, Ray’s former employer, and Lucky Break, an Australian mining company, who claims to ha [...]


  • Stephen Parrish

    Eric Stone's third Ray Sharp novel is, so far, his best. Once again we are treated to what we've come to expect from Stone: a feast for the senses. Vivid scenes, in which you can almost smell the cigarettes, the perfume, the garlic. Transportation to exotic places. A banquet of sights, sounds, and even tastes; I was constantly hungry while reading it. Stone has mastered the art of local color, so much so that the plot of HORNBILL---the search for a missing person against the backdrop of a gold m [...]


  • Bob

    Read on Kindle, this is an interesting and quick thriller read that I give three and a half stars to, really.The biggest problem with it is the razor thin plot with zero suspense is stretched to the limit and is often repetitive, though it's certainly never tedious. That's because author Stone does a wonderful job depicting Indonesian (Jakarta, Malaysia and Borneo) from many sides, from poverty to the nightclub high spots and landscapes. It's an offbeat choice and obviously a place he knows well [...]


  • Warren Olson

    Great fast paced novel placed in and around Jakata. Stone obviously knows the place, the people . and the prostitutes well !Colourful descriptions as his intrepid investigator 'Ray Sharp' looks to uncover a scam related to a supposed gold strike.


  • Susan

    Very cinematic novel about digging for truth in Indonesia.
