There are some decent action sequences if you can completely suspend your disbelief.
The characters were wafer thin. There was nothing unique or interesting about any of them especially the cops. There was not much of a story, just a lot of contrived action and corny dialogue. There were so many things that people did that made no sense whatsoever it was laughable. I have liked most of Patterson's books in the past, but this was totally amateurish.
Having separate narrators perform each side of the story worked well. I found the person reading for the killer to be quite good. The other narrator had a tough time with voice for the female lead.
I would like to cut the two lead cops from the story and start over. I found them unlikeable and boring. I could really care less what happened to them at the end.
I have never written an online review in my life, but this book is so bad I just had to give my opinion this time.
It passed the time during my commute.
No. It is not a bad book, but there are many better options.
She really struggled with the male characters, and over performed some of the dramatic moments in the book. I could have also done without the Boston accent.
Only on video. Some of the characters were quite interesting. I would like to see them performed by actors.
The novel seemed to struggle between being a thriller and a family drama, and in the end did neither one particularly well. I normally do not try and guess the endings of books, but this one seemed very obvious to me pretty early on. The story had some good moments, and moved along at a pretty good pace which was enough to keep my attention, but not on the edge of my seat.
