I picked up this book at the airport and as it was larger than the standard paperback size I put aside to read at a later date. I started reading it yesterday and couldn't put it down. I can't say too much or it will give away the plot but regular Lisa Gardner readers will enjoy the twist in the middle of the book. The suspense and mystery is carried through the book from the very start to the end which is unusual as I normally find books have lulls though the middle and just a crescendo at the end when all is revealed.
This is one of the best books I have read in years and I highly recommend it whether you are a regular Lisa Gardner reader or just want an extremely good mystery to read.
