The author describes this novel as a "psychological thriller' and that is his right. The fact that it has little thrill is the judgment of the reader. It's surprising that such a talented author can write such an uninteresting book. A woman has been killed, the wrong man imprisoned, and all signs point to another man as the killer. So, of course, he couldn't be the one. Not if there was supposed to be psychological thrills. Unfortunately, it doesn't take much for regular thriller readers to figure out who the real killer is. There go the thrills, and the book was only halfway over.

    Engaging story

    Although I knew "who did it" quite early in the book (and wondered why it took our "superman" hero so long to figure it out, the book was entertaining and a good read, overall.

    Ponderous; Plodding

    The characters were tiresome; the conversations stiff and boring. These were supposed to be people who knew each other for many years and yet spoke as if they were in a twelfth century drawing room. I couldn't identify with or even like any of them. As much as I love Richard North Patterson's books, this was a very disappointing read.
