I would give this book two stars based on the two stars of the book: a.) Character development, and b.) Michael Becks performance. Beyond that, I can't help but feel like I've wasted several hours on this book.
The book begins with a good story line with potential for a lot of suspense. Somewhere along the way, the character development takes over. We learn much about the small town, its history, and all of its inhabitants. The plot starts to take a back seat. There isn't much suspense again until close to the end (with several hints of an imminent plot twist). The anticipated climactic finish is very disappointing.
I am not sure. The first in the series was more of a thriller. Not great, but pretty good and plenty of potential... The second was tedious and contrived. I saw the great reviews, but I have to wonder if these folks read the same book.
I am going to try the third in the series. If it is like the second, I will move on...
