I only "Liked" this one, not "Really liked".

If anything this book needed more Morelli. I know, I know, JE is trying to create that nice little love triangle tension point between Morelli-Steph-Ranger. But I started to feel like the Ranger romance was a bit contrived. And there didn't seem to be a single scene where Morelli showed up and Stephanie didn't put him off in some major way. Seriously. Only so much dissing before a guy that delicious will just go away and find himself someone more amenable to his sexy overtures. (Ooh, ooh, me!)

Also in this installment, it did seem the ever-expanding wacky cast of characters began getting a bit out of hand and started to hijack the plot. The return of Steph's fighter nemesis Fernandez seemed almost an afterthought, as did the search for her uncle. At times, it also seemed like there was no relief from the constant onslaught of tension and terrible events each following right on the heels of another. Seems to me that someone suffering all these huge shocks would have a breakdown more sooner than later. I know, I know... it's Fiction.

All in all: More cars destroyed. More skips caught. More trauma accumulated. Not enough satisfying scenes with Morelli.
