I enjoyed this book, but it isn't as good as his first two books. This one I felt moved a little slower and was just harder to get into. I didn't find the female lead character to be what the author wants you to think she is. Mr. Ablow describes her as siren that no man can resist. However, I don't get why she would give Frank Clevenger a second glance other than what she can get from him professionally in the mystery of who killed her daughter. However I did get interested in Billy Bishop, the young sociopath son in the book. I hope we see him in future books. He was a fascinating and unpredictable character. Overall, I felt this book moved quickly but it was easy to see where it was going. I enjoyed the look into ethical dilemnas of relationships with your clients and into a sociopathical mind, but it wasn't enough to pull this book out. It was just ok. I would recommend this book to other that are reading the series to understand future books.
