Now, I'm going to be 100% straight-forward and start with the fact that I'm not a huge fan of this genre (crime fiction and romance could both be described as my turn-offs) and would probably never have picked the book up if not for a recommendation from a friend. But this was a novel WELL worth the time I spent reading it. The characters are realistic and easy to like, the plot twists and turns are many. I admit to having been blindsided by what was REALLY going on with the disappearance of all those young girls. The big baddie is sinister enough to send chills down your spine and his lackeys are thuggish enough that you want to shower off after reading about them. Not a straight police procedural, it focuses just as much on the characters as it does on the crimes they investigate, and it does so to good effect. A burgeoning relationship is put to the test when the protagonist can not quite figure out the motives of the bad guy's left hand. And while his motives are not what they appear, they're not what anyone else suspects, either. There are also some scenes that just make you smile (and I will probably spend the rest of my young life pondering a question posed in one such scene: do condoms have expiration dates?). Other scenes make you smile not at their humor but at their sweetness, so this book provides a wonderful combination of gritty crime and action, humor, and sweetness (the latter two frequently being traits all-too-frequently absent from the crime drama genre). Having read this initial offering by Jordan Dane, I'm now absorbed in her second book 'No One Left to Tell' and am eagerly awaiting her next 'No One Lives Forever'. If this debut (and what I've read so far of 'Tell') is any indication, this is an author to watch. I think we'll be hearing a lot about her in the future.

    Predictable

    I felt like I knew every "shocking" event before it happened. The characters were cliches. In one chapter I started counting how often the author used the word "grimace." That's how distracting the overuse of a word can be!

    Terrible

    The story wasn't very interesting until the very end. It took a very long time to get through the book to the best part.

    Eh

    It was an OK book. I usually enjoy the Grisham type of books so this one fell quite short of that sort of my personal expectations for a book. Just a personal thought. Couldve been developed more, but an OK read for what its worth to anyone.

    Okay story

    First time reading this author. I would rate as a "C-" Had a difficult time actually getting into the material. Took me several wks to read, not enough pull to continue reading. Nothing that really grabbed me to want to read the ending. However, I must admit that last 1/4th of the book was great reading & definitely held my interest.

    I do not recommend

    I had to force myself to finish this. Very predictable. I enjoy murder thrillers with a cop investigation, but this one was kind of lame.
