I needed something to read on a train ride from New York to Philadelphia. And, did I pick a winner!! Jan Burke is probably the best suspense writer I have read in a long time. The comment on the front said it was a real page turner and this certainly turned out to be true. Her knowledge of forensics, the scene of the crimes and even dogs is astounding. Her dialogue is nothing short of remarkable. Her 'good' characters are very likeable and the villain is someone you love to hate. This book has it all--suspense, nail-biting scariness, humor, and a really good story. I hated to put the book down--it was the type of book that you hate to end. The day I finished it I went out and bought her new book, 'Flight.' I have just started reading this and it looks like another winner. If you like Patterson, Koontz, Cornwall et al, you will love Jan Burke. She leaves them in the dust when it comes to writing.

Difficult reading in the beginning because of the complexity, but well worth the effort. Superbly written and masterfully laid out. Richard CA

This is my first Irene Kelly novel and it's not my last! I'm hooked. To me, the beginning wasn't a slow start. Because I already knew that something was going to go wrong it was almost more sinister. Like a false sense of security. When the bomb went off, I was as shocked as I was when I watched 'The Descent.' Jan Burke has created a character that is believable, relatable, and couragous, and all that without being having to be superhuman to win the day.

I have read all of Jan Burke's books, and this is the most suspenseful, interesting, emotionally moving one so far. I am such a big fan of her books! Love this reporter, her man, and crazy neighbor.

I admit that when I began reading this book I found it to be kinda slow and boring, but I'm glad I read on. After getting further into this book I couldn't put it down, it's awesome. There were moments when I read this book that I found myself saying 'Oh my God' out co-workers thought I was nuts when I did that. I thought this was a great book and highly recommend it to anyone who likes thrillers.
