    Yes- I usually love her books, but not this one

    Arriving in the mail over a period of weeks are taunting letters that end with a simple declaration: “Think of any number…picture it…now see how well I know your secrets.” Amazingly, those who comply find that the letter writer has predicted their random choice exactly. For Dave Gurney, just retired as the NYPD’s top homicide investigator and forging a new life with his wife, Madeleine, in upstate New York, the letters are oddities that begin as a diverting puzzle but quickly ignite a massive serial murder investigation.

    What disappointed you about Think of a Number?

    Felt like the police and main character were stupid. Obvious things that should have been looked at closer, weren't. Really didn't care for the book


    Has Think of a Number turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not in this genre, but by this author


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    What character would you cut from Think of a Number?
