My copy of this book has a sticker claiming "as good as James Patterson or your money back" and for me it is very much like any given James Patterson (probably unsurprisingly so as Peter de Jonge has cowritten with Patteson several times)
It is an easy to read, fast paced novel. Francesca Pena goes missing from a New York bar and is later found tortured and killed. Detectives O'Hara and Krekorian find themselves with 72 hours to solve the crime before the Homicide Unit take over the case. They soon find that Pena is not all that she seemed and even those who thought they knew her well didn't. O'Hara and Krekorian end up conducting their own investigation in an attempt to stop the Homicide Department making a wrongful arrest.
