1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

The story was mediocre. Nothing exciting. Nothing suspenseful. There were many strange storylines in this book. One of the storylines reminded me of the Three Stooges. Mind you, I didn't like The Three Stooges. They were so corny and not even funny.
