If you are the type of reader who is very impatient, the beginning of this book might make you question your decision to read it. I was the same way, but you really will want to stick it out. Within a few pages, the excitement begins and then it pretty much doesn't stop until the very end.
Ben Tucker is a great hero. He reminds me a bit of a Jesse Stone/Stone Barrington cross. He is intelligent, quirky and haunted by a past that makes him seek justice. I like characters that have a reason for their actions and a foundation to spring from. This book does that and does it well.
This is part suspense thriller and part murder mystery. There are portions that get a bit procedural, especially when dealing with the bodies, so if you have a weak stomach, you have been warned.
The action scenes in this book are thrilling and intense and leave you rapidly rushing to the next page to find out what happens next. If you have anything else to do the day you pick this book up, you should call to cancel your appointments.
In the end, I thought this book was better than a lot of the other mysteries out there, including the ones with big names on the front cover. I definitely recommend it if you want excitement.
