This is an excellent book.  A little different from most mysteries, but just great.

If you like thick thrillers about mafias and hitman this is a great book. My second favorite book. The whole series is great!

'Was one of those books I hated to put down! I read mostly library books, but I would love to own a hard copy of this book. 'Just can't justify paying several hundred dollars for a pristine copy.

An ok book but not on a par with Michael Connelly. I will try another book by Mr. Perry. Good ending.
