bookshelves: legal-fiction
Read in March, 2011

The characters were outstanding and the plot was good, but neither could make up for the over sell of the author's viewpoint. Instead of over 500 pages, it should have been 250-300. I felt way too many times I was drowning in quicksand. Then suddenly it would get good before back to the boring legal mumble jumble. Patterson needs to take some lessons from Grisham to hold a reader's interest. And Grisham always gets his views over without tiring his reader.

Maurean funny, I said the same thing about the 'over sell of the author's viewpoint' when I read "No Safe Place" years ago...guess he hasn't changed much.

No he hasn't. When I gave up on him I still had 2 paperbacks I hadn't read and this was one of them. May never get to the other one. My husband got about 2 chapters in it last week and said "Enough!"
