Good intrigue and well developed characters.:-)
Occasionally, I suffer from insomnia and lie awake in bed, trying to return to sleep. Last night, I awoke at 12:10 am and decided that if I couldnt sleep, I would read. I picked up this book, having never read one of Carla Neggerss books before. I finished it at 1:27 am. And barely remembered who the main characters were.
The book is classified as romantic suspense, and there is romance between US Marshal Mackenzie Stewart and FBI agent Andrew Rook; they share a couple of hot nights together. But theres no suspense here, only a lackluster story about two men, one of whom is newly divorced from a Federal judge, trying to blackmail a violent sociopath named Jesse, who does add some tension to the book but not enough to save it.
I probably wont seek out any more of her books if this is any indication of how she writes. Id rather re-read Patricia Cornwells Scarpetta series.
I enjoyed reading this book. It kept my attention throughout, to the point of not wanting to put it down.
