Homerun!!! The psychological talent which encompasses Kathryn Dance is a PERFECT compliment to Lincoln Rhyme's stunning forensic abilities. As a woman, I am impressed by how much depth Deaver gave his main character - Dance's family life is rich and tender but is woven through the plot delicately enough so it does not detract from the main story-line.

I believe this book has a lot of inconsistencies in the story. For the most part it was a good plot which included the two-dimensional Kathryn Dance, a Private Detective, her children, Daniel Pell (the bad guy), and Daniel Pell's accomplice. Daniel Pell was a supposed Manson worshipper, who is a cold-blooded killer. In the beginning he and a mysterious accomplice organize a jail break where many policemen and killed. Pell then goes on the lam and the whole book is about the chase. Slightly disappointing.

I just finished the Sleeping Doll and in some parts of the story, I didn't want to stop reading! I like the new character of Kathryn Dance, along with the other law enforcers. Suspense was high in this story and also the psychological baseline with the twisted ending was great and very unexpected. I admire Jeffery Deaver as a writer that can go from Lincoln Rhyme on the forensic science kind of law enforcement to Kathrn Dance who is on the typical leg/field work side of law enforement. I really liked how all characters in this story came with a vivid description. The story line was edgy and very real to actual police work. It takes a very talented author to invent and tell this story!

I want to start with I am a HUGE Kay Scarpetta fan. Thank you Mr. Deaver for creating another character in this vein. I'm hooked. Keep writing. And if you haven't read this yet, dear reader friends, buy it!

This was my first Deaver novel and I was hooked from the very beginning. An excellent, great page turner with a twisting plot. You think you've figured it out when he hits you with another twist! Highly recommend!!

I am a big fan of Deaver and I love the first book in this series. Very entertaining. Kathryn Dance is as brillant as Kay Scarpetta. Great plot and surprise ending. I highly recommend.
