Tim Green is a great author. That being said, this is not his best work. The book is dull, predictable and contains absolutely no plot twists. I've come to expect much better from this author. Had this been the only book of his I had read, it would have been my last.

I had high hopes for this book, however quickly realized character development was weak and story was unrealistic. I had no interest in finishing the story and never wondered whatever happened in the end.

Couldn't wait to get the latest Green book. His others were all great reads. Unfortunately, this one does not measure up. Read like a 'You need to publish again' statement from his publisher. Even gave the book to a friend who refused to finish it. There shouldn't be much of a waiting list at the library.

After finishing the Fifth Angel, I just had to run out and read Tim Green's new book. I thought the First 48 Hours was a 'Wild Mouse' ride of a thriller. I couldn't put it down. I thought the characters were well developed. Granted the story was a little over the top as far as being unbelievable, but most mystery/thriller nowadays are. I recommend this book and look forward to Tim's next one.

The basic concept should have been great. However, the characters are shallow and undeveloped and the dialog trite. The story line lacked credibility. Smart girl reporter has story which will ruin powerful politician who ruined her father years before. Girl gets kidnapped. Father blames politican. Father & friend find girl. But not before formerly smart girl sleeps with bad guy because she suddenly turns stupid and trusts him for no reason I could figure out. Kidnapping wasn't because of politician but he is killed off anyway. Blah blah blah. Boring boring boring. I only finished it because I paid 20 bucks.

Washington Post investigative reporter Jane Redmond uncovers a very complex abuse and corruption scam that leads back to US Senator Michael Gleason, the same man who destroyed her father Tom. Years ago Tom was a hot shot prosecutor, but powerbroker Gleason smashed his career. Though revenge would be sweet, Jane knows that her story is much more important.

However, someone kidnaps Jane while she is jogging. Tom realizes someone abducted his beloved daughter. He knows from his law enforcement days that THE FIRST 48 hours matter in a rescue because after that the victim is dead. So Tom and his partner Mike Tubbs knowing it is late in the fourth quarter take what they believe is the shortest route to her, kidnapping and torturing Gleason. Will he inform them what happened to Jane and where she is or will the senator hold out until time expires?

Though typical of a Tim Green suspense thriller, fans will enjoy this terse tale due to an interesting cast. The delightful dynamic duo makes the novel hum as ethic aside they know that the means is irrelevant when the clock ticks on life and death matters. Jane is courageous as she tries to escape her abductees and ¿Deep Throat¿ is an interesting character who is a show me the money soul. Though Gleason is too odious and nasty villain and there is a leap of major acceptance, suspense thriller fans will appreciate this exhilarating Potomac quest and counter-quest.
