    1. One of the things that I've really come to expect from author Neil Cross is not quite knowing what to expect when you pick up one of this books. CAPTURED is the latest in a set of standalone novels that have just all been fantastic, and I'm happy to report that CAPTURED keeps up the standard.When Kenny finds out he has a matter of weeks to live he draws up the sort of list that I guess many of us might draw up. People that he wants to clear the air with. He starts out tracking down the man who, [...]


    2. Because Neil Cross is turning out to be such a slacker in producing the, much anticipated, sequel to Luther (currently holding the unimaginative title of Untitled and delayed, again, until Spring 2014) I ended up grabbing another one of his books from Louise's bookshelf to fill the wait. Captured is the fascinating tale of a rather sad and pathetic protagonist, Kenny, who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Instead of telling his ex-wife and friends and living out his remaining days he deci [...]


    3. Synopsis/blurb….Even though he is still young, Kenny has just weeks to live. Before he dies, he wants to find his childhood best friend Callie Barton and thank her for the kindness she showed him when they were at school together. But when Kenny begins his search, he discovers that Callie Barton has gone missing. Although cleared of any involvement, her husband Jonathan seems to be hiding something. Kenny has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. And knowing that time is running ou [...]


    4. Captured by Neil Cross is a 2015 Open Road Integrated Media publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This dark, thought provoking psychological thriller is brought to us by Neil Cross, the author perhaps best known as the creator of “Luther”. When Kenneth Drummond is informed he has brain cancer and only weeks to live, he begins to put his affairs in order. One thing that is very important to him, is setting things right [...]


    5. Captured by Neil Cross - my, oh my. I thought this would be a good book with Neil Cross as the author but it turned into so much more. Kenny Drummond learns that he has terminal cancer. Some procedures will give him an extra month of life, but, Kenny decides the extra month isn't worth it and goes home to "put things in order before he dies".He decides to write a list of people that he believes he has let down. Four names are on this list, and three of the four are from his past, people he has n [...]


    6. A book that is about committing acts of wrong to leave the world feeling you left the world doing right. This is the psychology that operates in the brain of the main character Kenny "Happy" Drummond. He is diagnosed with terminal cancer and has only a few weeks to live. He goes on a self fulfilling mission to find out about the disappearance of one his best friends in junior school. He runs into many ordeals during this time which left me cultivated with his problems. The ending was well planne [...]


    7. Don’t let the simplicity of the title fool you. You haven’t read a crime novel like this before. From the first paragraph we find a very different kind of protagonist – one who is dying of brain cancer and will barely make it through the story, let alone any future crime series: Kenny wrote the list because he was dying. Earlier that morning, an MRI scan had revealed that a malignant brain cancer had germinated in the moist secrecy of his skull like a mushroom in compost. Kenny is given le [...]


    8. Trying to Make Amends Before Dying , Kenny Discovers a MurderKenny Drummond, diagnosed with late stage brain cancer, wants to make amends to the people he thinks he's hurt before he dies. One of these people is Callie Barton. He hasn't seen her since grade school where she helped him deal with the loss of his mother and his father's manic depressive episodes.The problem is that he can't find Callie. She appears to have vanished. There is a strong suspicion that she was murdered by her husband, J [...]


    9. I had mixed feelings about this book. It tells the story of Kenny, who has just been diagnosed with a brain tumour and has been given weeks to live. He decides that he wants to make amends with people he's let down in the past, however when he tries to trace an old school friend, he finds she disappeared years earlier and has never been found. He decides that he has to find out what happens before he dies.This book kept me turning the pages - It moved fast and was an easy read. The writing wasn' [...]


    10. AUDIOBOOKNARRATOR: Colin MaceThis is an rather short audiobook approx 6 hours and so much happens within this time and the timeframe of the story.Kenny is dying, has a few weeks to live and needs to sort out a few things in his life before he goes.He must make amends with a young boy (who is now a man) for not intervening when the boy is being abducted off the street. The kidnapping is foiled by a local shopkeeper and Kenny wishes to thank him for stepping up where he, Kenny, did not.He wants to [...]


    11. A man who is dying of cancer sets out to right the wrongs he's done to four people. The story starts out okay as he hits up the first three on the list. However, when he goes to find the fourth one, a girl who was the only one who didn't make fun of him in grade school, everything changes! It affects several lives, some good, most for the worst.Kenny is a very likable character despite his oddities. However, something changes in him as he seeks vengeance for his childhood friend who suddenly dis [...]


    12. La faceta de guionista de Cross actúa aquí como la línea maestra que eleva la arquitectura de la novela al estatus preciso de la relojería y las columnas fuertes, además de para resolver con sabiduría de oficio lo que se le exige a cualquiera que haga un libro de las características de Capturado: una agradable ausencia de juicio moral sobre los personajes y cierto laconismo a la manera inglesa en la prosa que la hace triste, desgarrada, seca como un erial en el que da gusto arrancarse la [...]


    13. Kenny Drummond gets the news no one expects to hear. He has stage four terminal brain cancer and has only weeks to live without treatment, maybe a few months with horrific treatments. Kenny opts to not do treatment and sets about putting his life in order. He is single with no children. His marriage had dissolved after a stillborn baby but he is still good friends with his ex-wife. He lives in a remote cottage where he makes a living painting portraits. He has no close friends or any relatives. [...]


    14. Six weeks. That’s the sum total of life remaining for Kenny Drummond who has inoperable brain cancer. He is a portrait artist. Mary is his ex-wife. He gives her the portraits he’d created of her. She knows something is wrong, but Kenny decides to keep it to himself – at least for now. As he thinks back on his life, he makes a list of people he feels he’s let down. They are: Mary; Mr. Jeganathon; Thomas Kintry; and Callie Barton. He only has six weeks to make it right.He manages to resolv [...]


    15. Knowing when you're going to die and how, it makes some people start to think really hard about what they want to fix before the big date. Kenny decides he needs to right the wrongs of his past, to clean the slate and in a way wash his soul clean off any sin. Regardless of whether that sin is real or imagined.He goes looking for the victim of an attempted abduction he was witness to many years ago. The guilt of not being able to help more and solve the case still weighs heavily on his conscience [...]


    16. Why I Read: „Captured“ was again, a Net-Galley pick that seemed to catch my eye as I scrolled through the lists of books. What’s there not to like? A story set in England about detectives, old mysteries and missing persons. Review: It’s difficult to describe how I would ‚rate‘ Captured. On one hand, the writing was absolutely fantastic. With every breath and step of the characters, I felt as though I was in their lives. However, the plot left, for me specifically, something to be des [...]


    17. According to his biography at the end of Captured, author Neil Cross is best known as the creator of Luther, an award-winning BBC crime series which is scheduled to return with a two-part event special this year. I had never heard of Luther, but having now read Captured, I will be adding it to my Netflix queue.I had expected from the publisher's description that Captured would be a thriller in the vein of the 1988 movie D.O.A Both stories feature a protagonist whose imminent death lends urgency [...]


    18. When I read the description of the book, I was intrigued by the premise -You are diagnosed with a brain tumor and only have 6 weeks to live. How would you choose to spend your last hours, days, weeks?Before I began the book, I mused how I would spend the remainder of my time here on earth. I would choose to spend my time with family and close friends. I cannot change my past, but I can speak life and love to those around me.In Captured by Neil Cross, Kenny Drummond is informed by the doctors tha [...]


    19. My View:Murder/Mystery/Psychological thriller with a dash of horror!What a great page turning read – this book is full of surprises and reveals that shock. The premise of the book sounds worthy and interesting; the introduction to Kenny Drummond’s life is twinged with sadness and a few regrets and the unexpected recent diagnosis of impeding death by late stage cancer. Kenny’s world is in tumult. What do you do with just a few weeks to live? Kenny tries to make amends.This starts out as a v [...]


    20. At first I thought this book was going to be a tear-jerker. It's about a divorced man, living alone, who has just been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and has only weeks to live. Sounds totally bleak. But it isn't that kind of book at all. Kenny writes a list of people he feels he has wronged and decides to make things right before he dies, by apologizing to each of them. His list includes his ex-wife. My first surprise was the easy relationship Kenny has with his ex-wife and her new husban [...]


    21. I received a ARC copy of this book from NetGallery for an honest review.The story is about Kenny Drummond. A man who finds out he only has weeks to live and tries to make amends to everyone before he goes. His quest leads him to Callie Barton, the only schoolmate that was nice to him. He finds out Callie has been missing for years. Her husband, Jonathon, is the only suspect.Without giving too much away, I liked the introduction of the book. The first three names on his list are smooth and insigh [...]


    22. I received an ARC from the Publisher and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.Kenny Drummond discovers he has terminal brain cancer and has six weeks or less to live. He writes a list of the people he has let down in some way and wants to make things right with them. On the list are his ex-wife Mary, Mr. Jeganathan, Thomas Kintry and Callie Barton.In searching out his old childhood friend Callie Barton who was so kind to him, he discovers she had disappeared years ago and her husband was s [...]


    23. James bought me Luther for my birthday (thank you!) and I thoroughly enjoyed that one. That prompted me to buy a couple more Neil Cross books, and I can say for sure now, I'm a fan. Quite a curious little story, I ended feeling a lot of sympathy for the key character, Kenny, despite his decline into violent behaviour. Quick to read and a real page turner.


    24. I read mystery novels because I love the rational, problem solving process. It's a stand in for science. I also love tricky case histories, stories of teasing out molecular structures, and nonfiction about finding the source of diseases. No matter how horrible the disease, or how brutal the murder, solving the mystery brings a tiny bit of light to the darkness. In this book, there is a lot of brutality and not a lot of solving or figuring anything out. There is very little insight into the miser [...]


    25. An above aver s get thriller which seemed commonplace as it motherboard a resolution. Frankly there were times where I came close to stop reading it, continuing only with my fascination with British vocabulary and slang. I'm glad I did, because the conclusion was incredible.


    26. This is one of those books you can't put down because something terrible may happen while you're gone. Probably the best Neil Cross book I have read so far. The characters are just ordinary people and yet there are cracks. FAB!


    27. Exceptional The story line captured me from go and didn't let go. It was difficult to put this book down. Great read. Highly recommend!




    28. Captured by Neil Cross opens with Kenny Drummond learning that he has late stage brain cancer with only a few weeks to live. Kenny is in his youngish middle-age and has been eking out a living as a downmarket portrait painter. Despite being somewhat of an odd duck, brought up by a father who was more than a little mad, Kenny has a few friends and to all appearances has led a relatively blameless life. Chief among those friends are his ex-wife, Mary, and her husband; and a retired policewoman, Pa [...]
