it was ok

** spoiler alert ** Lynda LaPlante needs to be evaluated for a head injury. That’s the only reason I can think of that she would crank out such a stupid, repetitive, hole-ridden, illogical book.
I don’t care how many times she tells us Langton is a supercop or Travis is a genius. What she shows us is a supercop who pulls surveillance of a drug kingpin’s known safehouse after the other occupants are arrested. She shows us that Travis will repeatedly ignore orders.

The book was 30% longer than it needed to be, and was made longer because she wrote a lot of stupid behaviour upon her main characters in order to spoil out the story. I think it was supposed to make the drug kingpin look ominous. It just made the cops look stupid. And me look annoyed.

Kristen Stieffel Was "painted three quadrants" a problem because leaving the fourth unpainted made no sense, or because the number of "quadrants" did not equal four? :D

Katherine Coble If there aren’t 4 they aren’t quadrants. /Latin Pedant. :-D
