When I think about the story and the characters, I think about how much I enjoyed it. That said, it took me much longer than expected to finish. I think it was really only 2 1/2 stars for me. There was a great deal of background information spread throughout the book and the format that this was told was boring to me.

Okay, I still look forward to reading about Det. Brian McKenna, but, Mr. Mahoney, please kill off his partner, Cisco Sanchez. These are otherwise great police procedurals, but I cannot read about Cisco, the world's greatest detective, anymore.

I was born in Manhattan on September 21, 1947, five minutes after Stephen King was born someplace in Maine. (I don't know what that means, but I'm hoping it means something.) I grew up in Manhattan and Queens and soon found myself to be the eldest of five children. I graduated from high school at age 16, a bad thing because I was too young to get a driver's license in New York and too stupid to r ...more
