    • I really enjoy Montanari's Byrne & Balzano series, this one, however, is a "stand-alone" thriller but it's still excellent reading (no surprise there)For once though, it wasn't with the "good guys", Michael & Abby, that my empathy laid but with Aleks. Unusual to be rooting for the baddie, especially as Aleks is a villainous vennaskond (drug lord, extortionist, thief. oh, & lets not forget murderer) who believes he will live to fulfil the prophecy of Koschei the Deathless - but for so [...]


    • Fast-paced thrillerA high-flying and ambitious new York Attorney, Michael Roman, who is one step away from the top DA job and appears to have all that he could wish for, suddenly finds his life crumbling all around him. His beautiful twin daughters were adopted from his parents’ homeland of Estonia. A crazy man from that country believes that he has a strong claim on the girls and heads to the USA to take back what he believes to be rightfully his.If that were the extent of the story, it would [...]


    • Mediocre at best i bought this book expecting an airport thriller, something to keep my entertained. While there were some good moments of suspense and tension in the book, I found on the whole that it failed to hold my attention. Maybe it was the whole supernatural element that put me off, but I found the storyline about the seer and etc. to be pretentious and boring. Not the worst book I've ever read, but certainly a wasted few hours of my life.


    • Very good thriller with the only issue for me was trying to remember and sort all those Russian names!Great author (love the Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano series) and a good book.


    • Pretty much a stock thriller with added supernatural and Estonian elements. I like Montanari's detailed writing and enjoyed the story but it wouldn't be one I'd read again


    • Richard Montanari ist bereits eine echte Autorengröße im Thrillergewerbe. Sein Roman "Im Netz des Teufels" beinhaltet eine spannende Story mit schlichter, schnörkelloser Sprachführung, die dem Leser sofort konkrete Bilder liefert. Trotz der manchmal rasanten Szenenwechsels bleibt die Spannung durchweg erhalten, fesselt den Leser bis zum Schluß. Montanari verbindet hier eine alte russische Legende über einen Unsterblichen namens Koschtschai mit dem Hier und Jetzt. Im Mittelpunkt zwei illega [...]


    • Blurb from Michael Roman is finally living the life he always dreamed of - he has a successful career, a beautiful wife and adorable twin daughters. But his idyllic life is about to come crashing down around him - because Michael is a man with a past. A rising star in the New York District Attorney-s office and on the cusp of enormous success, Michael-s perfect life begins to unravel when he finds himself the target of a depraved madman, a man who covets everything Michael has and will stop at n [...]


    • Read a lot of crime fiction but I'm new to this author and if I had to sum this book up in a word it would be: frustrating. On one hand its fast paced and has numerous cliffhangers, there are some deliciously gory set pieces and even though I didn't care much for the hero (it's hard to love a lawyer) the villain of the piece had enough menace and mystery to keep me interested.However there's a dollop of mythology and the supernatural running through this book which at first was mildly irritating [...]


    • I've really enjoyed Richard Montanari's recent books, focussing on detectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano. In fact, this is the first book I’ve read by Montanari that hasn’t featured those characters. The book is a departure in other ways too. The hero of the story, Michael Roman, is a lawyer, rather than a detective which instantly gives him less resources and the relationship between the hero and the story is far more personal. The story feels rather less epic than Montanari’s other [...]


    • Certainly a fast-paced thriller but I have to admit that I did not find it quite as engaging as his Jessica Balzano and Kevin Byrne series.Part of the reason was that I did not take to his main protagonist, Michael Roman, and his wife at all. They just never came alive for me. Strangely the 'villain' of the piece, who was not actually a serial killer despite the publicity material, was more fleshed out and reminded me of Keyser Söze, though not as sophisticated. It just seemed as though Montana [...]


    • This book hasn't been released in the US yet. Richard Montanari is one of my favorite authors, so I ordered this one from UK. I didnt realize when I bought it that it was a stand-alone novel and didnt include the detectives of his regular series. Once I saw that this book was more about a dark fairy tale, I was a little bit disappointed. I do really like Montanari's style, and it made the book relatively enjoyable after all, but it was really more of a story as opposed to a mystery. I cant wait [...]


    • Struggled to get to grips with the pacing at first, but once it got going, boy did it go! While I found some of the plot to be fairly predictable there were a few moments that surprised me. The connection between Aleks and his daughters was wonderful to read as it added an element of foreboding to the story that I felt was lacking elsewhere. While not something I'd normally read, it was recommended by a friend and I'd not be adverse to reading another of his books.


    • After reading The Devil's Garden I am not in a hurry to explore any more of Richard Montanari creations. I was hooked for the first couple of chapters eager for a scene where I wanted to skip to the end half way through the book. The Devil's Garden is ideal for reading on the go but not as a book I would recommend to friends.


    • Dieses Buch hat mir tatsächlich besser gefallen als die Geschichten um Balzano und Byrne. Beim Lesen wird man hier auch recht schnell ins kalte Wasser geworfen, aber die Charaktere und ihre Motive finde ich sehr interessant. In der Summe weicht Montanari auch hier nicht vom typischen Schema ab, aber bis zum Ende fand ich es spannend.


    • I read this after my experiences reading Broken Angels and Buried Alive. It took a while for me to get into, then had me hooked, as you never know with this author who is going to win the day. Some bouts of graphic description which made even me wince! I enjoyed it, especially as I didn't find it formulaic or predictable.


    • found the story arc quite convenient in places which took away from the enjoyment pf the book. Not really my type of story writing, cant say I'll be in a hurry to pick up another one of the author's books


    • Good, fast paced thriller with bits of legal thriller and a touch of the supernatural. I found the emphasis on blood and gore a bit off putting, but if you don't mind that, you will probably enjoy it.


    • Although I've enjoyed other Richard Montanari books, I didn't like this one. It didn't make much sense. The "supernatural" elements didn't work for me. It wasn't very believable. The characters made some stupid decisions, 'nuff said.


    • 4.5 starsI really liked this book. It is just the type of fast and pacy thriller that I really enjoy. This is the first book that I have read by Richard Montanari and I'm looking forward to reading some of his other books.


    • The book is not bad but for some reason I found the writing just didn't make me want to keep reading and turning pages. I really disliked the ending too. There is such a thing as not knowing when to stop



    • Fantastic! First of his novels I've read out of the Balzano and Byrne series. Will read the rest of his stand alones!





    • Epic read, top notch. A page turner from page one. Some people are put off by the 'supernatural' bits in the book. But there isn't much of it and it adds to why the guy is a nutbar



    • An okay read but much prefer his Byrne/Balzano series, didn't much like the Grimm fairytale type aspect to it and the characters were very formulaic.
