A fast pace, but total airport-read fluff - when your chapters don't even reach a page in length, you know you're padding.

What's to say? But how, oh my gosh it was...AMAZING! Like I didn't even expect that twist. I mean I read that there was going to be a twist but when it got to what 'almost' looked like the end (but wasn't) the whole thing just turned around. Like I was just wow, no words, lol. I think I hit the book a few times but only because I wasn't expecting that. No harm done though, the book is still intact.

This is a very good read by Heilbrun. Enjoyed the characters and the interplay between and among them. The main character can't take too many more novels because of the damage done to him in this one, but there are real possibilities with a return engagement in a second book because many things are left unfinished. A good read.
