a little over halfway on my first Robert Crais. Terrific in every way... can't put it down and don't want it to end.


Ok, i finished it. I loved it. It is great and the fellow Goodreads member who recommended Crais to me is my new best friend. Thanks!

Some writers are seemingly looking at the fast track to a big bank account. Some writers recognize that writing is a skill, a craft, an artistic endeavor. In this genre, Robert Crais is the craftsman, the artist, the skilled creator who can make my heart beat fast, my palms sweat, drive me crazy with anxiety and then guesswork. Ultimately he keeps me on his book(s) all day and night. Like I say, I am so grateful for the public library!

So this is a dense novel, with extremely tight writing.... economic... but full of character development. I think that it is the plotting which keeps this going. What ever it is, I am hooked. If you like crime/Thrillers, you will have to read this.
