Does this author have an editor?

Don't bother downloading this book. Very amateurish attempt, must be a first try. As an elementary English teacher, I'm appalled at the simplistic sentence structure and lame style. This would need a teacher conference if written by a 6th grader! No redeeming qualities whatsoever, and the grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors lead one to think that no editor ever took a look at this. Whole paragraphs of only one long run on sentence, an unbearable fondness for commas as the mark of choice, and putting whole conversations of dialogue into one paragraph.... really? The only thing I liked about this novel was its reference to a city I'm familiar with - Palm Springs - but even at that, the descriptions of places and locations I recognize are very limited. I grimaced my way through it, but it wasn't worth the time. This could have been SO much better!

    Loved all of Mr. Simon's books

    I read everyone of his books and would like to see more! Can't believe some of the comments. His books took me away to Palm Springs and wished I could live there. Visited this winter and love it there! You are a great writer Mr. Simon. Wish you would write some more.

    Keeps your interest

    It started out slow and I thought for sure it wouldn't be of interest but I couldn't have been more wrong. Definitely glad I gave it a chance!

    Very entertaining.

    Action and mystery combined with a retired cop who still has a lot of get-up-and-go.
