Wow. Just...wow. This was a free Kindle read, and I didn't read it as much as skim. It is so poorly written that I kept marveling that it was ever published. The main character is a probation officer/law student/single mother dynamo, the kind of probation officer who isn't afraid to lock herself in a room with a violent killer to get the truth. Characters repeatedly comment on how she's the one to get the job done and no one else can do it.

The other characters have little personality and in the middle of a crucial scene with dialogue, the book will digress into pages and pages of backstory that has little to do with the plot. The brother's girlfriend is particularly ridiculous, with pages of endless flashbacks, and you never know whether she was telling the truth or not. There is the self-involved mother, the druggie brother, and the no-good boyfriend, along with the no-good ex-boyfriend. The ending was more laughable than a Hollywood summer feature, and throughout the book I honestly was rooting more for the villain than the main character, plutonium bomb and all.

Why did I keep reading? To see if it could truly get any worse (it did).
