3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the last one. 23 Nov 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I DID find myself page turning on this one as there was a deadline for murder! It was good, but still not believable really as the dialogue was still a bit un-real and the characters still not identifiable as normal people.
It was a good book to while away the hours but a book in which you forget all about the plot just a few days after you've read it. A good money earner for Alex Kava but not a mainstay in thriller fiction by any means! If you normally read Ruth Rendell or P.D.James don't buy this book, unless you want a rest from cerebral thrillers. This is a 'Thriller for the masses.'

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read 3 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback
As usual Kava's O'Dell series is readable and enjoyable. The characters individual story lines continue to be developed whilst they pursue a serial killer. Not the best in the series but a good read.
