I really wanted to like this book. Come one this is Steve. Who does not love his work? One of the best in both of his fields if you ask me. Have not read all of his books, been trying to get the ones I never read or had before. But so far this has been the only book that I really have not liked. To me it liked the Cannell charm, and spunk.

Will give it another read since I couldn't get into the Shane Scully novels in the beginning years ago. And those were the first novels of his that I read. Still will get this copy to add to my selection

I cannot say one good thing about the central character in this sad story. The author has painted a sorry but graphic picture of a bitter, self absorbed man whose wife and daughter are seemingly equal to his despicable character. The entire audio book kept me both annoyed and depressed. I could only listen to half of it. The best of it was the Narrator, Scott Brick.

Kind of funny in a sad way; a Hollywood type sees a girl he 'wants' during a vacation to Hawaii. Trapped in a loveless marriage, he pursues her. He pursues her so much, he does some really weird things.
