I'm a little jumbled over this one. While I liked the book and didn't ever think about stopping, I found myself tuning out. It seemed at times to go on and on and on and on....... I wasn't sure that I'd never make it to the solution of the mystery! I liked that the settings were well defined and the characters were well established, but there seemed to be more detail in places that was necessary. I wanted to shout "get on with it already!" more than once. There were several murders and many twist which came down to an ex-lover of Bentz's. This was made obvious by her talking in the first person. The rest of the story was told from a different point of view.

I liked that the villain was a woman. Most of the time that isn't the case, so that was a little bit of a twist right from the start. I couldn't wait to figure out which one she was. I just kept getting so lost in all the other stuff. It was like wading through the mud to determine what was really needed to solve this mystery.

Overall, not bad, but I waited for this book for a long time to not enjoy it as much as I'd hoped.

This is one of Jacksons best! Rick BentZ, a New Orleans dective, since his accident that nearly claimed his life, has been on edge. He thinks that his mind is playing tricks, making him think he sees his first wife, Jennifer, who died in an automobile accident. His first marriage was fraught with the trauma of divorce and her sudden death in an auto accident. Now, he is thinks he is seeing his first wife. He doesn't want to tell his new wife Olivia about the sightings. He fears that he is losing his sanity. To find answers, he has to return to Los Angeles, where Jennifer died, and it's there that the murders begin...plenty of clever plot turns..the suspense is really terrific. VERY good boook
