The writing is great, the suspense is top notch as usual but the story pans out to be rather dull.
A high school student is the target of a hit man. The million dollar questions are: who is the killer? and why is she being targeted? The case takes a strange turn once everyone realises she is researching her family tree and one of her ancestors may have a bearing on history as we know it.
Suddenly Rhyme and co are trying to find out what happened all those decades ago as well as keep young Geneva safe.
You'll be terribly disappointed to find out the conclusion of the case but the road there almost makes it worth it. Plus, there's another Rhyme book coming out soon and you dont want to be left in the dark when certain personal aspects creep in...:)
Read if you are an avid Rhyme/ Deaver fan only....
