Good read!

Good read for the mystery enthusiast. The story flowed and kept your interest. I would read other books by this author.

Free Friday, published in 1989. Characters did not have cell phones, computers and used roledexes. I found it so funny because everyone had to run all over the place trying to find telephones. It this book had been updated before it was republished, it would have been a lot better. It was an interesting read and a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The book is 180 pages long, well edited and has a good flow. There is some cursing, a lot of murder, some of them rather gory, a few sexual situations and a simple romance. The mystery is different from the usual fare and whodunit is not immediately evident. It was a better free Friday offering then most.

    This book got boring in the middle so I stopped reading it and deleted it from my nook.

    This book was so disjointed with virtually no character developement that I was very surprised when I read the author's bio. The only reason I kept reading was to see if it got better as it went on. It didn't. I am surprised it ever got published.

    Meh

    It's hard to get into a book when you think the main character is an idiot. I did read the whole thing, but all of the characters were flat and the story was not engaging enough to compensate. Read it for free if you must, but don't pay money for it.

    Glad it was free

    Paying for it would have been a waste of money. Poorly envisioned characters. Poor misleads. Unlikely combination of events. Gratuitous sex. Badly researched. And somehow it was published anyway. Bet it did not sell well.

    I couldn't get into the book completely. It was hard to get in touch with the characters. Glad it was free.
