Being a news reporter myself, and an avid mystery reader, I thought Buchanan's Britt Montero would be a character I could identify with and enjoy reading about. However, I found that Montero could be whiny in a way that would not fly in my newsroom. But, on the other hand, I did identify with some of her characteristics -- for instance, getting a story cut to shreds by an editor. Garden of Evil was the first Buchanan book I read, and I was not impressed. It's not a bad book, but it's not a great one either. As for the reviewer who said the novel had a 'climactic outcome' and a 'stunning finale,' I couldn't disagree more. Yes, the novel had suspense, and yes, the dialogue crackled. But I knew from the jacket cover exactly what would happen. Maybe I've read too many mystery novels. But, I'll give Montero and Buchanan another chance and hopefully find those great books the reviewers seem to think Buchanan writes!

From the beginning to the end, Buchanan kept my attention in this book. She's definitely knows what she is writing about.

I have enjoyed Ms Buchanan's Britt Montero in all of her previous books. This book lacks the excitement and the non-stop action that I have grown accustomed to. This book was interesting and somewhat sombre. When I read this latest, I was disappointed. I am used to reading Ms. Buchanan and being just as tired as her character with each new adventure. Not her best effort.

The real terror here is the beautiful young serial killer - sheer poison in a pretty package. How journalist Britt Montero ends up on a deadly joyride with the lethal lady stretches credibility a bit, but who cares? The action is nonstop; the dialogue crackles. If you're lucky enough to get to a warm beach this winter, this book would be a great read to take with you.

Scat looked at the scene. He slamed down his hind legs on Thunder and Darkness, gathered his team, and ran to SunClan fast he could.
