Top critical review

It is unfortunately the case that I tend to read books until the end. I have rarely given up on them. However, this was one of those books I couldn't wait to finish so that I could read something else. I am pretty sure that if it had not been written by Michael Connelly I would have tossed it aside while still half way through. As you get into the book you realise that the main character (hardly the "hero") must be one of the most stupid characters you have ever read about and his situation was all of his own making. Despite many opportunities to do the right thing, he ran headlong into more stupidity. This must have been the worst book Connelly has ever written.
