I always wait for Carla Negger's books, and I am never disappointed. I can't understand the negative comments. This is a GREAT book. The heroine is a hoot and everything is tied together perfectly. What I like best about her books is that you really feel like you are there...in the setting. It's very rich and fully of detail.
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 really liked this. I have read a few by her that I didn't like all that much, but I'm glad I gave her another chance because this one was really good. Likable characters and a lot of suspense. Really good overall.
