Dealing with Harriet Klausne, then a review.

Every week on Free Friday, we all end up finding a "review" by the notorious Harriet Klausner which is really just a 3-4 Nook-page synopsis of the book. Solution: Go to the BN website, find her review and mark it "spam" and/or "unhelpful." Eventually, they will stop ...
Every week on Free Friday, we all end up finding a "review" by the notorious Harriet Klausner which is really just a 3-4 Nook-page synopsis of the book. Solution: Go to the BN website, find her review and mark it "spam" and/or "unhelpful." Eventually, they will stop showing on the website and MAYBE BN will start taking our issues with her seriously.

Harriet, if you happen to read this since I put your name in the subject, I am sorry that you are likely an old and lonely woman who wants attention. Go join a senior center or something. Your "book reviews" are nothing more than elementary school book reports and are not wanted.

Now, for the book: I am usually not a fan of the pseudo-political thriller but I think Phillip Margolin does a very good job of melding the murder investigation with just enough political intrigue to make it work. I think it is worth your time.

Very good legal thriller with many twists and turns and lots of action and excitement.

I loved this book to the last page. This book has so many twists and turns that it makes it so intense up to the last page. The book is hard to follow at the beginning, in fact for the first 1/4 of the book. I love the way that Margolin sets up the ending and the various turns that this novel takes. Margolin adds the right amount of action and suspense while giving the reader and the characters the right amount of information to keep them turning the page. There is a lot of profanity, so if that's not your thing don't read this book. The suspense made me keep turning the page (well, hitting the next page button on my nook ;)). The plot is well developed and will keep you guessing until the very end. You'll think you have it figured out in the middle, but I guarantee that you don't know who the killer is!

    children .

    Dear children who only like your own opinion. Many of us who read the free friday reviews are senior citizens and do attend senior centers so we can talk to others who learned our lesson on what freedom of speech is. Harriet is interesting to me. I dont mind knowing the complete plot before i read. Dont you ever reread a favorite book. If her reviews or as you call them book reports are abhorrant to you exercise some willpower and dont read them. I find your rants obsurb but entertaining just try not to be so childish in your attacks. Sincerely yours. A senior citizen who likes details.

    Don't bother

    This book was a train wreck!!! It had way too many characters for a book of this lenth. The storyline was all over the place, and had very little cohesion. Very unimpressive ending.

    Pretty good read.

    The book was free. Not bad. Scary to think that this story could actually happen.

    Started Great! Didn't Sustain Itself.

    When I started it, I really got into it and thought it was going to be like Baldacc's first gripper! But that was not to be - at least for me. I didn't dislike it but thought it was just OK. I'd rather have more surprises than have everything laid out for all to see and know. I'd never read anything by Phillip Margolin before so don't have anything to compare with.
