it was ok
bookshelves: 2011, suspense
Read from April 10 to 27, 2011

eh, just ok this was. It was an easy read, but I felt for her first book it read just like an elongated screen play. Too many chase scenes, too many times Jay looked over his shoulder, too many times he questioned his motives but continued to pursue the woman he pulled out of the bayou one dark night while he and his wife are celebrating his wife's bday on a riverboat. The black/white conflict within Jay was interesting, and I liked his remeniscences about his "black power" days in the '60s when he was young, but...this was just an okay read for me.
