it was ok

I liked Myron Bolitar better when he was in just paperback. Ever since these hard back Bolitars, he's weaker. I don't know if Harlan Coben things sissyness comes with age but after his return to his Myron Bolitar character, he's made Myron a total wimp--always crying and saying cheesy things and the way he has Myron describe his feelings towards whoever his current love interest is at the time, it's like Michael Bolton is singing it. I'm not digging the Hardback Myron. I want Paperback Myron back.

Other than that, it wasn't as captivating as his others. I was apathetic towards the other characters, about the plot and the whole thing was just a little tired.

I also felt like Harlan was jumping the shark with the whole Paris setting in the beginning. It really served no purpose whatsoever except to have the setting somewhere other than New Jersey. Lame.

Susan Coley Touché'!! Steven Weber narrating the audiobooks made it even worse. Esperanza often sounds like Fozzie Bear. Just horrible.
