Written in a similar style to Patterson, this is a very good story line and characters you can grow attached to. The female is strong and stays pretty strong. It is a relevant story that you could imagine happening today. Fast paced and not so easy to solve in advance. I continue to enjoy this author and will keep him on my wish list.
