I usually love the progression of a mystery read. Who's the hero, who's the nemises, etc. and who dunnit? The characters in this novel could not be sorted out and sometimes I felt nothing for them to the point of not caring what happened to them either. But I did stick with it to the end only to have the mystery solved with a red herring! Now I know that life is kind of like that, but I don't like it in my mysteries. So, I can't recommend this book and won't be wasting my time on another by this author.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the ones set in San Antonio. Those characters are more devoped - and funny at times

I gave up on this book after about 100 pages. I just couldn't get into it. Guess I was use to the "tres" novels.
