The Boat Man is undoubtedly a thriller you want to read, especially if you love novels where their authors step out of the ordinary and take their time to develop the main characters into unbelievably people. It is quite refreshing to know that The Boat Man is more than the regular thriller you can read online. Dustin Stevens takes his audience by surprise by creating intense situations, intelligent characters and a brilliantly written story with plenty of twists and turns, mystery, suspense and action. Instead of being able to put distance between him and the outside world, Detective Mattox finds himself dragged into a virtual bottomless pit where he has to solve the mystery of horrific murders in a poverty-stricken section in his town. Dustin Stevens has managed to write a book on a subject that has generated a lot of controversy over the years. The author does not only present facts, but goes deeper into the hearts of his characters and shows how tragedies can break a person. Something inside everyone of us can break once a loved one is taken from us in a violent and senseless way.
Jerome of a two-week boating holiday on the Thames from Kingston upon Thames to Oxford and back to Kingston. The book was initially intended to be a serious travel guide,  with accounts of local history along the route, but the humorous elements took over to the point where the serious and somewhat sentimental passages seem a distraction to the comic novel. One of the most praised things about Three Men in a Boat is how undated it appears to modern readers — the jokes have been praised as fresh and witty. The three men are based on Jerome himself the narrator Jerome K. Jerome and two real-life friends, George Wingrave who would become a senior manager at Barclays Bank and Carl Hentschel the founder of a London printing business, called Harris in the book , with whom Jerome often took boating trips.
