Sorry to say, but this thriller is more bones than meat.

Despite being a plot-driven thriller, he at least trys to add meat by starting with two wonderful marriages, alas for the women.

Well, it looks like I've done it again. I went to add this book to my library only to find that it was added in 2013 and apparently I read it back then, but didn't record it for some reason. It wasn't memorable enough for me to recognize and I read it through again. I'm not a Detective Bennett fan. The backstory was just too gooey for me. ( )

Really good book to listen to: the chapters are nice and short so it's easy to stop when needed. The story was good and I really like Mike Bennett and his children. I didn't figure out who the neat man was - I guessed but I was wrong. I like when a book is able to keep you guessing til the end. ( )

Gripping action as detective Michael Bennett tries to deal with a mass kidnapping and Ransome. A simple concept with James Patterson:s dependable strong execution. If fast-paced thrillers are to your taste, you:d have trouble finding better. ( )
