This book is 264 pages long. It was well edited. There were only a few missing words. The violence, murders and sex were not very descriptive. There was not any cursing, religion or humor. There was a very tame romance, great characters, a cat that acted like a cat and a pretty decent conclusion. This is mystery which will keep you guessing for and I enjoyed it a a long time. I think one of the reviewers reviewed the wrong book, because she was reporting about the war and a dog's point of view. This had nothing to do with this book. I found "REASON TO LIVE," a very good book and I enjoyed it a lot. It is about a retired police officer, who revisits a murder case at the instigation of the victim's daughter. The daughter thinks the murderer is stalking her and feels threatened. This is not chick lit. It is geared more toward the male of our species, yet is not so hard core, a woman would find it unenjoyable. For readers age 18 and up. AD

This was the first book I've read on my Nook. The experience was tremendously satisfying on both levels. The ease of reading on the Nook was beyond what I had anticipated. Being able to adjust the fonts and margins is a fantastic benefit. Probably this will be the way I read from now on. As for the book - very very entertaining and extremely well written. Attention was paid to character development - not just a plot but people who are fleshed out and realistic. It was so enjoyable that I'm looking forward to another of Matthew Iden's books. Very much recommended.

Usually I pick up my Nook at 3AM to read a dull book that will put me back to sleep. I have found a lot of the free books to be in this category; but definitely not this one. Matthew Iden has a winner in his character, Marty Singer, a retired cop who has been diagnosed with cancer but doesn't let this get in his way. I cared about him and his physical condition. Mr. Iden is a skilled writer who grabs your attention and doesn't let it go. His plot twists are ingenious and entirely plausible. I now want to read the whole Marty Singer series.

Regrettable, Forgettable Dirty cops and a main character recently diagnosed with cancer--this could be interesting. Unfortunately, the plot did not live up to its premise. Two days into my next book, I had forgotten the plot of this one. Oh, I remember who done it, all right. I just can't remember how our hero figured it out. I could have done without the gratuitous sex scene. It did not add to the story. Competent writing, but just average story and style. Main character's name Marty Singer is also the name of a real-life "pit bull" lawyer for celebrities in Los Angeles.
