To do list prior to reading this book:

1) Purchase and read a book on skydiving paying particular attention to terms used including but not limited to type of parachutes, cords used, number of parachutes used in skydiving and computers used.

I like Vicki Hendricks, I've read most of her novels, but this is by far the worst of them. The protagonist is absurdly stupid in the face of her lover Tom's machinations and the plot is tired and cliched. Puke.

One of my favorites - Vicki Hendricks. I've read this one multiple times. I think she really captures the suffocating, trapped feeling of a bad realtionship - maybe the self-doubt of her main characters, their loss of self? - like no one else I've ever read. I'm so jealous of her writing style, it isn't even funny...

Most people either love her or hate her. I don't know anyone who feels lukewarm on this writer.

Vicki Hendricks is the uncrowned queen of a sub-genre I am going to call "trailer-trash noir." Her books explore the underbelly of Florida, with twists, turns, and unconventional plot structures. While this one was not my favorite of hers (I think I liked INVOLUNTARY MADNESS best), it's still well worth a read.

This book does not leave out one single clichee about skydiving, and the storytelling is among the most unbelievable and un-intriguing I ever read.

This was really good. I really liked it. It had to much detail to the sex scenes well, in my opinion it did but other then that it was good. The ending was surprising to me.
