First of all, I really liked all Kava books except the one outside the Maggie O`Dell series. I eagerlie awaited the new book Whitewash and it was a huge disappointment.
Mrs. Kava tried to write something like a polit-thrilled which is, in fact, a good idea. The whole plot is a good idea.
Unfortunately she did no manage to write it very well.

Let me tell you what I did not like:
The plot is really good but I really got the feeling that chapters have been shortened by the publisher or author. I had the feeling that the reader is missing important informations and I did not like the short chapters. Some chapters had only three pages and you had to jump to another character. The two main characters did not deal with each other, they did not know each other and honestly, I wouldn not have mind if one of them (Jason) would not have been a character in the book at all.

Whitewash is a strong book but it has too much pages with insufficient sentences to tell the story in one whole piece.

Great book, good author. I recommend this if you like mystery thrillers.

This is a stand alone for Kava and it is bad--I was into about 150 pages and it was not even into the story yet, there is so much description about everything it is so boring, I don't have a clue what the story is supposed to be about but I figure more like another Erin Brockavich along with some terrorist? Too many characters to keep up with let alone very hard names to try to remember or pronounce so you might name them Tom Dick and Harry to keep them straight in your own mind--I finally just quit after 175 pages!

I haven't finished it yet but it's gonna have to get a whole lot better before I can say I like it. This definitely isn't my favorite Kava book.

I realy some other reviews that did not like this book. I disagree. It was not hard to follow the characters, the storry was a little far-fetched but nevertheless entertaining. I've read better but I've certainly read a lot worse. At least that's my two cents worth.
