    1. This series is superb, every one so far, a 5 star read The narrator for these is also 5 stars.I ve had a bit of a gripe about the difficulty in securing a print copy of this book and no electronic version before Even for a second hand hardback, the prices start at 80 The publishers for some reason only print a limited amount of copies This was the most expensive in the series to get secondhand So alas, I could only listen to the story this time round Maybe this was just as well because it gave m [...]

    2. This fourth instalment in the Matthew Corbett series will see our hero neck deep in the scum of Professor Fell s world He will visit the exotic islands of the Bermudas, encounter a monster of the deep, wrestle a seahorse, explore castle fortresses, discover an underwater city, perve on a mermaid, have his balls and other parts threatened by a psychotic Indian, attend a party and play pass the head, battle pirates with an excessive addiction to sugar I could go on.If you ve read this far in the s [...]

    3. In my opinion, this is one of the most consistently exciting series I ve read McCammon is always entertaining and accessible to read and the Matthew Corbett series is one of his best achievements so far It s very impressive how the books keeps getting better with each installment In The Providence Rider, the young, professional problem solver , Matthew Corbett, is a changed man following his near lethal adventure with the pyscho murderer Tyranthus Slaughter Now he has been summoned by the myster [...]

    4. Not my favorite in the series, but still rather enjoyable I was very intrigued by Dr Fells character in this one and am looking forward to of his story and interactions with Matthew Should be quite the event when they meet again Even though this was the weakest Corbett story so far, I still consider it one of the best series out there 3 Stars and looking forward to .

    5. Well, once again the legendary wordsmith writes another fantastic tale regarding the life and times of problem solver Matthew Corbett The latest installment follows Matthew as he is forced to do work for the director of evil, Professor Fell, in the Godfather esque fashion I ll make you an offer you can t refuse For the first time Corbett meets him first hand rather than through a proxy In the normal flair Robert McCammon is able to beautifully script his thoughts and put them to paper for his re [...]

    6. This is the latest installment in the Mathew Corbett series.In this novel we meet Matthew s nemesis, Professor Fell I love how Matthew is growing throughout the series At first in Speaks the Nightbird Matthew is uncertain and a bit naive As the series continues, he is learning and becoming and sure of himself As he takes part in the scarier and darker side of life,as in Mister Slaughter he becomes hardened, worldly Now in his latest, Matthew is reminding me of that old Nietzsche quote Battle [...]

    7. Read this series And then tell your family and friends to read it Tell your neighbor about it, and stop people on the street.Yeah, it s THAT good.

    8. Providence Rider is the weakest and most problematic Matthew Corbett yet To start with the positives, McCammon is still excellent at description and bringing the 1700s to life The setting is strong Pendulum Island and New York are evoked with thoughtful detail However, the mystery is surprisingly straight forward, the action is good but not great and the villian characters held no intricacies or surprise Pr Fell is view spoiler easy to fool, and his motivation predictable hide spoiler He is also [...]

    9. I didn t enjoy this volume nearly as much as the previous ones in the Corbett series The series has devolved into a series of very trope laden plot elements with an overall plot outrageous than all the previous volumes, the first volume Speaks the Nightbird still beating the rest The characterizations outside the already established characters was very weak this time, the criminals all being fairly one dimensional and too easy to thoroughly dislike The Deus ex machina is telegraphed way too ear [...]

    10. I love all four novels in the Matthew Corbett series, and though SPEAKS THE NIGHTBIRD the first one, which is much longer and denser than the books that followed may always be my favorite, THE PROVIDENCE RIDER is by far the most entertaining The sense of fun from the last installment, MISTER SLAUGHTER, is ramped up even this time, and the book is a witty, suspenseful, twist filled, gory, action packed historical adventure.

    11. A bit far fetched at times a smart man doing some really dumb things a stubborn man re learning the same lesson he learned in the second book and third book Still, quite the fun read.

    12. I seem to be one of the only naysayers on this book so I best give a good why up front If I had read this as a stand alone I would have given it 3 stars, it is a book, not terrible and not notable, just a swashbuckling light read, something a young teen would enjoy However I have read and enjoyed all previous books The Providence Rider is a complete disjunction, only some of the names remain the same, their action and abilities bear no relation to the series to date The basic premise of the book [...]

    13. THE PROVIDENCE RIDER is the fourth and at this point the most recent of Robert R McCammon s series featuring young Matthew Corbett as a problem solver cum private detective for the Herrald Agency, based in London and New York I take issue with the publisher s blurb that calls this a standalone installment , since there are constant references to people, places and events that took place in previous novels, most specifically the immediately preceding MISTER SLAUGHTER Having just read all four boo [...]

    14. After the very memorable and thrilling events in the third volume of the Matthew Corbett series, this fourth installment picks up just after the end of Mister Slaughter Those events weigh heavily on the series central character, Matthew, leaving in a foggy state The nefarious tentacles of Dr Fell reach out to the young problem solver, drawing him closer to him than ever It s an exciting novel with a change of scenery outside of the young colonies The sea voyage and the overall aquatic undertones [...]

    15. The Providence Rider by Robert McCammonDecember 23 to December 31, 2014Forth book in the Matthew Corbett SeriesRecommended by internet friendsProfessor Fell wants Mathew Corbett What Did we hear that correctly Oh, the Professor probably wants to torture and kill Matthews, I get that What No, he wants to hire Matthew as a problem solver A Providence Rider In this 4th book we find Matthew continuing to become of a darker character He has now killed other humans in hand to hand combat and is chang [...]

    16. It s tough to say whether I have a favorite Matthew Corbett novel, or not Each book provided its own unique experience, quite different from their last Speaks the Nightbird, being the longest tome of the series, took place down south in a small, underdeveloped town in 1699, introducing our dweeb of a clerk, Matthew Corbett, who is just for the first time breaking out of his little comfort bubble and seeing the world under a different light Then came Queen of Bedlam, which truly kicked off the se [...]

    17. I ve been a big fan of this series but The Providence Rider turned out to be a bitter disappointment and by far the weakest entry imo in the Matthew Corbett series.With a rather straight forward and predictable plot, it badly lacked the thrills of the previous books Not only that, but for all the new characters it introduced none of them felt very memorable Not even Matthew s archnemesis, Professor Fell, whose appearance I was so eagerly anticipating Also, our main character is suffering from th [...]

    18. I admit, it took me a bit longer to finish this installment of the Matthew Corbett series, The Providence Rider It was fast paced, but not as thrilling as the past few books In this story, we meet the dreaded Professor Fell and get to know his history Matthew is going along, minding his own business, when a series of explosions start destroying various businesses in New York At every crime scene, there is written, MATTHEW CORBETT nearby These businesses are also run by Matthews friends Matthew f [...]

    19. I have read all of Robert McCammon s Matthew Corbett novels They are all great This is the best since Speaks the Nightbird Mr McCammon truly transports you to a different time and place He creates interesting and terrifying characters, describes fascinating and scary places and brings the world in his books truly to life This book, to me is than just historical fiction, it is historical adventure The book takes place in New York of the early 1700 s Matthew is immediately in peril from some of p [...]

    20. This is a good read as are all of McCammon s books especially this series, however, I wished I could have found a synopsis of the previous one, Mr Slaughter, as I had forgotten quite a few things since I had read it over a year ago He does reiterate some of what happened which helps bring back memories, but if you can either read Mr Slaughter right before this one or find a synopsis it would help you transition into this all the better He brings in some new interesting and some very deranged cha [...]

    21. While I m enjoying this series, three things are beginning to stand out for me First, McCammon seems to be getting better at villains from book to book Second, McCammon seems bound and determined to only allow Corbett to engage in sex when he s drugged, injured, or otherwise incapacitated He s essentially been raped in three of the four books so far It s getting stupid Finally, this whole sub plot with Berry should have been put to bed with the end of this novel The way McCammon keeps doing a la [...]

    22. What a great way to continue the series of Matthew Corbett How this one slipped past my radar for the past 9 months is beyond me, but I m so thankful I found it I won t get too lengthy in my review but I will say I enjoyed this book immensely To take Matthew out of NY and place him in unknown territory was a risky move that, for me, paid huge dividends Meeting new albeit shady characters as well as focusing on some older ones, provided a great read Without spoiling anything, I will say I missed [...]

    23. While the setting is probably my favorite so far, I found the resolution to be a bit anti climactic everything was wrapped up quickly and neatly than I would have expected This definitely felt like a mid series book, concentrating on character development and setting the stage for future adventures than on the individual plot.Still a very enjoyable read, and a couple of the funniest moments in the series to date view spoiler Loved the scene with Matthew disembarking from the ship once they rea [...]

    24. Did McCammon get tired of writing somewhere between the third and fourth novels in this series Sings the Nightbird was fantastic The Queen of Bedlam was good Mister Slaughter was okay The Providence Rider was marginal It had its moments, but it doesn t stand up well to the standard set in Sings the Nightbird Nonetheless, I will probably continue with Matthew Corbette if when the next installment is available.

    25. This is the weakest of the four Matthew Corbett novels to date It abandons the murder mystery format of the first two and lacks the claustrophobia of Mister Slaughter Rather it becomes a weak kneed historical thriller.opionator.wordpress 2012 0

    26. Mostly great Over the top villains, non stoppable action, and Matthew Corbett is a wonderfully flawed hero I enjoyed it, and am on to the next one I especially enjoy being a part of the scenery of that time period, which is well written and seems naturally presented, right down to the chamber pots.

    27. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr McCammon at the World Horror con in Salt Lake city last month He signed all 13 books I brought and couldn t have been a cooler dude As for The Providence Rider its awesome Like the previous 3 Matthew Corbett neo els this is just typically super well written and just superb But I m a McCammon fan who thinks the guy can do no wrong

    28. I have really enjoyed these books Each subsequent volume builds off the last and it is great fun riding along with Matthew and watching him grow and make mistakes One book and I will have to wait for the next one like everyone else I look forward to savoring the moment.
