Not great. I especially was not happy with the ending. ( )

Ok, I said I wouldn't read any other Karen Vail novels, but I downloaded this before reading the first one. All was going well until I started to hit inconsistancies and obvious "things women never do or say"...not to mention the "conversations men think women have." Number one on the list of things women never do: call themselves by their last names. I can't even explain how annoying it is that the author refers to his character as "Vail" all the time.

On top of a bunch of little things that annoy is the coup de grâce: leaving a dangling end followed by a "buy my next novel" in a grating, smug, self-aggrandizing tone. ( )

If it weren't for the total cliff-hanger at the end, I would have given this book 5 stars. I did read the reviews prior to reading the book, but I expected at least a little resolution. I immediately read Velocity and enjoyed it. As long as you view the two books as two halves of the whole and read both, it is a great book. ( )

I read this book because I got it for a Free Friday ebook from Barnes and Noble for my Nook. I realized afterwards that I had the one previous in the series also but reading this novel of the Karen Vail collection didn't leave me confused or feeling like I was missing anything by diving right in.
This novel highlights Karen Vail taking a vacation from her last thrilling serial killer case in Napa Valley, California. On a wine tasting tour, someone discovers a body. Vail, being the FBI profiler that she is, cannot turn down the case.
Full of excitement and fast paced action, Vail tries to track down the Napa Valley Crush Killer before he gets to her. ( )

Another simple, fast, cop, murder mystery adventure read.
Worth picking up if you like pulp fiction! :-) ( )
