I enjoyed this book despite picking up the series on the third installment. It had a solid plot and decent writing. I never felt confused or left in the dark - every clue was explained or recalled. However, there were a few things that stuck out to me while reading (SPOILERS BELOW)

One of the authors, Hallie Ephron, is one of the famous Ephron sisters. She and her forensic neuropsychologist co-author are good writers who have created an interesting series about Peter Zak, a forensic neuropsychologist in Boston.

Hallie Ephron and forensic neuropsychologist Donald Davidof are co-authors of the Dr. Peter Zak medical/psychological mysteries. They write under the shared pseudonum G.H. Ephron. The character of Dr. Zak is based loosely on Don, who runs a unit at the McLean, Harvard's psychiatric hospital, and often consults as an expert witness for the defense in criminal cases.
