    Great book!

    I would have given this book 5 stars if not for some lack of proofreading, specifically calling a character by the wrong name within a single page, and using the wrong homonyms in a few places. It was still well worth the time to read it.

    I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. Very good, detailed mystery. There are many possible suspects but you are stunned by the actual killer. I would definately pay for more from the author and even this book. If you like mystery, I would highly recommend it. However, be aware that this is not a book for young readers. There are some sexually graphic parts as well as swearing. I hope this author will continue to write and impress us with his work.

    A good effort, if that's not trite from a non author, but I didn't actually finish it. The bond with Mia felt forced, and man, when the main character gets too unsympathetic so I gave up less than 75 pages from the end. Very good start, very slow middle, and then as noted, I gave up.

    !

    Good story. To the poster who made the racist comment...what were u talking about? There was no racist comment made. It is untrue statements like yours that start problems. Get over yourself and stop trying to start a race war where there is nothing to start.

    A good enough read

    This book held my interest and had a few twists, but I saw the end coming. Characters are rather flat. The back story on the main character peeks through but is never quite clear and often irrelevant. It creates a second story that provides occasional back-up and a nice tidbit at the ending, but otherwise is confusing. The descriptions are detailed, sometimes to the point of nonsense - clothing details are fine but mostly extraneous to the story. Still, the story moves along, tells us something about the Tampa/Clearwater area, and has enough surprises and tension to keep the (virtual) pages turning.

    Amateur writing and unecessary racist coment about black people

    Amateur writing and unecessary racist coment about black people on page 99...I tried many times to read this but what it lacked in character content, it also lacked in grammer errors, and ridiculous jokes..That's why its free!

    Readers beware!

    While the story line was manageable, this book is rife with cheesy phrases, misspelled words (e.g., pre-medicated instead of pre-meditated, defence instead of defense), extra words (e.g., "I you want Morse") and very child-like writing. I do not recommend this book!

    Meh..

    I gave up trying to slog through this book.. It has an interesting story line and normaly thats all I'll need to get through a book with some errors, but it just couldn't keep my attention. Stupid comments haphazardly thrown in and pointless moments of confrontation between the main character and his love intrest just got old and annoying. Not worth the time it takes to read.

    Slow at first, but the ending was good.

    I like the last 150 pages best. I felt the author could have written this in 300 pages and it would have been better. I hate useless detail in any book. Overall it was average.

    Loved it

    I look for books about Florida..my home state. I am a Randy Wayne White & Carl Hiassen fan and this book reminds me of them. If you like either of those authors, check this out. I am hopeful his style will evolve and am currently reading the next in the series ( not free, lol ).

    Okay read

    The characters could have been developed better. If you like cheesy cop humor this is for you. Although I did finish the book I just couldn't get into the characters or relate to their personalities and reasoning.

    Fun

    I enjoy murder-mysteries and even though I knew "whodunit" from the beginning, it was still a fun read.

    My main complaint is the poor proofreading. Often I had to re-read portions to get the meaning which interrupted the flow of the novel. And I'm not sure Joe and Mia were believable as a couple. However, the story line was interesting and the plot kept moving at a good pace, so I really did enjoy the book.
