This thriller is a fast and fun read. The characters, for the most part, are well written, especially Mary and her family. Jack, and his daughter, Paige, are also well written, Paige especially, who, as a teen model, could have been a cliché, but instead she is a sad, complex, character. All the characters are well developed, especially Lou and cops Brinkley and Kovich. I particularly liked them as the story developed. The plot had enough twists and turns that the identity of the real murderer was a complete surprise. This is a good read for fans of courtroom drama.
