did not like it

I tried to read this book. It's in a genre I love (thriller). It opens with a murder, so it should be compelling. I simply couldn't get past Larsen's overuse of adjectives and adverbs. "Why use one when five will do?" seems to be his mantra.

Less is more, Mr. Larsen. Go read some Jonathan Kellerman and get back to me. You're not far off, but right now you and I just aren't going to get along. Or hie thee to a skillful editor.
