DON'T START THIS BOOK IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO DO
I finished this, my first Harlan Coben book, in less than 48 hours. Once I started it, that's all I wanted to do, solve the mystery. I read 10-12 books a month, mainly mysteries. Trust me when I tell you that most are drivel, a shameful waste of the trees to print them. When you stumble across a writer this talented you seek out all his other works.

WAIT UNTIL READER'S DIGEST CONDENSES IT
These 500 pages seemed like 1,000. Are editors no longer employed by the publishing companies? She's one of several authors in recent months who seem to go to press without one word being deleted from their manuscripts. I would have red-penciled at least half her pages.
Interesting premise, but entirely too unruly and disjointed for even the most patient of readers.

AT LAST A WORTHWHILE READ
Even after researching the most touted new books, of the dozen or so I read each month, perhaps one stands out as recommendable. This is it! Believably quirky characters, a convoluted plot, plus deft, droll writing cinched my vote. Enjoy this one - they are rare indeed.
