A decent thriller. Murders, chases, surprises.

Jeffery Deaver is the reason I fell in love with mystery/thriller novels! I absolutely ate this book up when I was in high school and I never forgot about it. For that very reason, it will always be a 5 star read for me.

Not your typical detective suspense story as this story reads over a period of 24hrs. There are many twists and turns in this story which holds a reader to the very end. The main character is a female detective which I felt was refreshing from the typical male centred stories. I loved this story from beginning to end.

I went in with quite mild expectations but this Deaver mystery really impressed me.In short, this is a cat and mouse chase style mystery with a few twists and turns thrown in. I really appreciated the depth to which Deaver described the characters and settings. As a trail runner, I felt like I could picture myself out on the trails and in the woods.

I’ve only read one Jeffery Deaver book in my life, Saving Faith, which was excellent. Thing one was barely ok. The story didn’t have a great flow, the characters were all stunted and this book didn’t seem to have a cohesive plot line. My thought when it finished was just meh.

I was excited when I first started the book. Fast paced and interesting. The middle got so drawn out and by the end I was thinking "Really? Oh come on." I like twists - when they work. They didn't in this one and I felt like the author was getting paid by the page rather than the story.
