A well-written and entertaining story that just went on and on with too many anti-climactic moments.  I've read Ridley Pearson's Lou Boldt books but not in order.  If I had read this one first, I might not have grabbed a second won.

I first read this book in junior high, and now, 15 years later, I re-read it and it is just as exciting! Maybe I have an affinity for his books because they are set in my hometown of Seattle, but they are also very well written and you don't know the outcome until the last paragraph!!

This is the first book of Ridley Pearson's that I've read and it was very enjoyable. I will definitely read more of his.

This is one of the best mystery novels I have ever read, and the only one I've read 3 times.
