Lucy certainly did get closure, just not the way she had imagined she would.

The story was good but unfulfilling. I wasn't expecting it to end so abruptly, but then I suppose the authors did their job. The most frustrating thing for me were the typos, which made my eyes bleed.

Too short

The story is short, there's not a lot of meat on the bones, and the previews take up most of the book.

I admit, I’ve always seen books on the shelf for John Lescroart and MJ Rose. I’ve picked them up. I’ve read the back. I think about them. But for some reason I don’t buy them. So when this free eBook short story came up, I picked it up. I had a little bit of time in a doctors office the other day and decided to go ahead and read it. It only will take about 15 minutes of your time, it’s about 30 pages long, and it’s a very easy read. I am

To begin with, I think that except in rare circumstances short stories do not display authors' talents well. There is little time for development of plot, let alone character and most people don't handle that well.

This story had an interesting premise, but lacked in the delivery. I found the ending a little disappointing.

Technically, the writing wasn't bad. It should be noted also that over 60% of the space in this publication was devoted to exerpts from two other books. At least they didn't la

This was such a good, quick read. Glad I decided to brush of the digital dust, and give it a go. My only reasons for not giving it a 5 star is the ending. I wasn't a fan of how it was just over. Just like that. Plus the amount of "bonus material" that was there was just too much, and made me think it was longer than it actually was.

Wow for a short story this held my attention and did not leave me wanting more. It was an amazing short read that really had me thinking from beginning to end. I didn't need anymore character development I did not need anymore substance or dialogue. This was a great read for a short story. I will most likely pick up more from this author in the future.

I was not a fan of this authors writing style and didn't follow the book all that well. It just didn't capture my attention in the least. I bought the book on a recommendation for the author by one of the patrons at the library. I guess I will have to try a different book by him because this one didn't catch my attention in the least.

Closure by John Lescrorat and M.J. Rose was a great quick read. It was a good story that kept you on your toes. Lucy kills men who deserve it but her latest conquest could be her ultimate undoing. This was a great read, I can't wait to read more by these authors.

Okay short story about a young woman going to therapy to address her inability to feel anything. Be careful what you wish for, it may be your undoing.

I'm not a big mystery fan, but I liked the economy of this story versus his long novels.

Excellent, as always.

I love Lescroart but this was not part of his series. I didn't like it as much as his series.

Vignette portrayal of a disturbed young woman. Straightforward story with a twist at the end still manages to be a head shaking WTF?
