Bummer--I tried and tried to stick with this but for 550 pages the first 150-200 pages just didn't seem to go anywhere. There is so much computer 'talk' and 'cybertalk' and description, description, description -- those kind of books just lose my interest fast! Maybe the story is good but my word you have to get to it first!

Brings forensic skills to a whole new level with Kathryn Dance. Her skills in reading body language make you want to check everything you do yourself.

The pace of the book, rather than being breakneck, keep you involved and reading long past bedtime.

I have read several of Deaver's books and the Kathryn Dance books are far better that his other series. This has a very interesting premise.

Love the twists and turns. Kept me guessing to the end. I also love the way he keeps the main character human.

When a teenage girl gets kidnapped but survives, Kathryn Dance and Michael O'Neil know who the culprit is very quickly. He's a tricky devil though and he leads them on a merry chase through an online game - a violent RPG. The geekspeak (the instant message language teens use which uses numbers instead of letters, bad grammar and spelling and zero punctuation), is irritating and the RPG is ridiculous. It's no wonder that our society's going to hell in a hand basket if this is how teens learn to interact.

There was no mystery just a manhunt (er, teenhunt) for the known culprit. Lively but not really interesting. A little less tedious than the first book in regards to kinesics. I know this is Dance's schtick but it's very annoying as it interrupts the flow of the story. These books end well but the journey is long and sometimes boring. Regardless, I will continue the series since I need to know how Dance and O'Neil's relationship gets personal and the outcome of the FBI guy's indictment.
