    Worth checking out!

    This book was really good and a fast read. The plot was great and the characters were good. I read a lot so for me the story line was bit too simple and not complicated enough. Overall though its definitly worth reading.

    Highly recommended

    I actually liked this story very much. It keeps you interested from beginning to end, the characters have depth and the storyline has a good beat. The narrative is good enough that you can actually visualize the settings.

    Not Bad

    As stated by other readers, grammar and punctation needed a bit of work. Story line is good. This is an easy read and a fast moving book. Not bad for a first time writer.

    Good

    Good story but i didnt see the 'hundreds' of typos and grammatical errors the grammar nazis complained about. May have been some, but wasnt bad enough to take away from the storyline, unless you are anal about that stuff.

    Proofing

    While I believe in following your dreams, if your dream of writing involves readers (me!), proof the work before publishing. This book is riddled with typos. Distracting from the story.

    Easy reading

    This was a fairly easy read that I finished in a couple of days.

    There were some typos, but not too many.

    The story itself was a straightforward thriller. I thought the part **SPOILER ALERT** where the main bad guy appeared in the hero's home was unrealistic, but the story itself was engaging overall, and the characters were mostly believeable.

    I wasn't blown away, but it was an enjoyable read.

    Wow, this book will teach you not to lie.

    I cruised through this book at an alarming rate. It was exciting but it wasn’t anything special. I would put it under the heading of a fable, moral of the story don’t lie or really bad stuff could happen. Unfortunately the bad stuff that happened in this book was predictable. It was still a good book, just not great. I suppose it would depend on how much you read and what kind of experience you want from it. I came away from this book feeling no different than when I started it and I always hope for a little more.
