This book was enjoyable but VERY predictable. For me, this book was a typical police/detective mystery series "first" with a simple plot and a basic presentation of the characters. I thought the epilogue was an exciting head-start into the next book, and I am ready to read more in the series. I didn't think book #1 was spectacular, but it was a fun, quick, and easy read.

This is the first book with the characters. My dad has read the book and I have not, but he said that it keeps you guessing and has a lot of twists and turns in the plot. THOSE are the best. KEEP READING.

This is a good start to the series that both stands up in its own right and also sets things up well for other books in the series.

This series is my favorite Police Procedurals mysteries.

This book also made me want to go to Snoqualmie Falls instead of just seeing a picture of the falls on the Lodge's pancake mix in the grocery store.
