    This is the first book I've read by Brockmann that I can say has

    This is the first book I've read by Brockmann that I can say has been a disappointment from beginning to end. The story telling here was very sloppy.  It felt like chunks of the book was edited out. 




    My major problem with the book was the main character.  Jess lived in some delusional world where one date (though I didn't think it was a date) and one night of sex (where the words "no promises" were spoken) some how constitutes a relationship. I mean "I know he said no promises, but he gave me and orgasm and I gave him and orgasm and it was great, so what he really meant was that he's going to live with me and my daughter forever! I just don't understand why he's leaving me now even though he said he wouldn't stay with me." Yes, the book was as eye-rolling as that.  




    Rob as our hero was intriguing at first, but really an annoyance by the end of the book.  Rob was consumed with guilt about his past,and I spent the first half of the book wanting some clue, some insight, and the other half of the book not caring. It was this cycle of resisting Jess, giving in, thinking he's not worthy of her, and guilt. It happened over and over.  The cycle would not have seemed so tedious if we were seeing some progress, some hope from him in his thinking or some insight into why he felt that way. 




    The supportive casts of characters seemed more like unrealistic caricatures. Since when does the FBI run their evidence through civilians in a hope to get their agreement? Why wouldn't the FBI check out all possible suspects? Why wouldn't Jess want to tell the FBI about the men in her life when they think the serial killer is tied to her? 




    The book seemed more like a first draft of a story rather than a well fleshed out suspense.  The reveal of the killer was no big revelation. Bottom line, this book was a waste of time and certainly not Brockmann's best. Check out her Troubleshooter series, those are great!
