I picked this up because I really like the collaborative works between Lincoln Child and Preston Douglas. However, I was very disappointed in this story. There was lots of description of the theme park but little depth in the characters and an extremely thin plot with almost laughable situations. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of this one. Whoever the reviewers are who enjoyed this book must have read a different book with the same title. I will continue to read the works written in collaboration with Mr. Douglas, however.
