This book is ok. I’ve read better thrillers, but it was good enough to keep me reading to the end. I find stories that rely heavily on twists and turns in plots and over plays implausible connections between characters and events leaves me feeling as if the author has been toying with the reader, which is a feeling I don’t really enjoy. This was how I felt reading this book. I have been told by fellow readers that Slaughter is a very good writer, which prompted me to give this book a go. However, I felt she over-played her hand to a great extent and the story would have benefited from a more subtle and deft touch.
