Good read
Engaging story and even more engaging characters. The plot centers around a rich girl angry at the world, a super smart kid headed to Princeton, and a homeless 12 year old whose parents were deported to Haiti who are hiding out from a gun dealer and after the shooting of his associate as he attempted to rape the girl. The real story, however, is the personal relationships and personal growth of several of the characters as they face the demons in their lives. Read in one sitting.
Enjoyable read
The author makes the characters seem like people I wanted to know. Light read but thoroughly satisfying. Well-paced mystery mingled with romance.
One of the Best Books I've Ever Read
This book kept my interest from the very beginning. I have many favorite mystery writers, including Faye Kellerman, Meg Gardiner, Marcia Mueller, John Grisham, Lisa Scottoline, Catherine Coulter, Heather Graham, and David Rosenfelt, James Grippando and James Sheehan. Karen Cleveland now tops the list. If you like any of these writers, you'll appreciate Karen Cleveland's first book. It has wonderful character development, a great plot, and highly believable twists. It gives insights about the intelligence world and mysteries of the heart. I stayed up all night to finish it.
Great Mystery
Rosenfelt is one of my favorite authors. He outdoes himself in this novel. If you like Michael Connelly, Jeff Abbott, John Grisham, you'll love Rosenfelt. In this novel, he tries to solve the mystery of who abducted a baby while also getting an innocent man convicted of a crime a new trial. I can usually predict who convicted the crime at least by the midpoint, but I never saw this one coming. It's a great read, with great characters I wish were real, and great storytelling.
Wordy, bogged down, and tired
CJ Box used to be one of my favorite authors. This book and his last one were not up to his usual storytelling. He's suddenly become very verbose and it takes pages to say what could be said in one. This weighs the plot down and makes it very cumbersome to read. I hope he goes back to his former spry manner.
