First-rate crime thriller by the master. ( )

Not his best book. I read them all dutifully in hardcover, as soon as my mom finishes with them. I always enjoy them and this was no exception, but he may have phoned this one in a little.

I don't really understand why he chose to tell it out of chronological order, maybe it built suspense better that way?

I will say that I enjoy having both Pike and Elvis figure prominently in the narrative, with chapters from each of their points of view. ( )

Pretty good thriller, not much of a mystery. I found that the multiple viewpoints added to the suspense but thinned out the character depth. Found the AG Mother mostly a distraction. ( )

Everything was good except the format. It just didn't work. It was distracting and made it hard to read. I finally gave up and read all the kids'part, Elvis' part and then all Pikes.

The first time ever I have given a 2 to Mr. Crais. ( )
