    Not that good.

    This is the first book I've read by this author, and it will probably be my last. I agree with the other reviewers in that the first chapter was great, but from there it just dragged. In fact, once I reached the middle of the book, I let it sit for a couple of weeks before I picked it up again. The dialog was unrealistic and the plot, well, what plot? As a former employee of the Bureau, I find it difficult to comprehend some 'older' ladies outsmarting the Bureau. Unrealistic. If you want a true 'page-turner', try Michael Palmer, Jack Higgins or James Patterson!

    Boring. Too many names to keep track of. Too many assumptions.

    Don't waste your time with this book.

    Awful. One of the worst books I've ever read. It reads like a first draft that slipped past the editing process and went straight to print. Absurd dialogue, ridiculous characters, pathetic excuse for a plot. I read it like someone watching a train wreck -- I couldn't believe anything could be this bad.

    My first and last read of this author

    Catherine Coulter has wasted a perfectly great story line with some really poor writing. It would be interesting to see this storyline written by a real writer like James Patterson or Vince Flynn. I was very disappointed. I rated it one star only because no star was not an option.

    A major disappointment

    The first three pages of this book are the only thing worth reading in this book. After that it's all down hill. Story line has no depth to it. It just jumps back and forth and you feel like you're just rambling along. This book hasn't any bite to it or substance. It was a total disappointment. Totally boring. I am completely surprise this book was written by Catherine Coutler. Don't waste your time on it. Read Julie Garwoods FBI thrillers instead.

    The book had the hype. The standard for Coulter is definitely expected but then she has not done it to the best. The ghost did not have any link with the murders. So, I feel that part of the story could have been avoided.

    SKIP IT!

    I tried and tried but couldn't even bring myself to finish the book. Her dialogue used to be so good, now it is just lame.
