This was a quick, easy read with down-to-earth dialogue and a very interesting plot. I did find the flashbacks a bit distracting, but necessary, I suppose. What is nice about the book is that a(nother) crime is to be committed and the suspense about this builds up throughout the entire book...keeps you on the edge of your seat!

There may be a message in this title, it may be the last one featuring Matthew Hope. This is an easy read as are most McBain works, the action is fast paced, though it is still possible to pick up and put down. Hope is hired to find a missing husband by a wife who wants a divorce. The husband, Jack Lawton, left Florida the previous year and Jill has had no word from him for months though a friend saw him up north with another woman. The action in this novel is intricate and follows the investigation in the north and the South as well as the activities of the criminals.
