Well, this one read just like the blurb above says. I sat on the edge of my seat yelling "somebody pay attention". Sort of like when you are yelling at the tv :) I'm not going to tell you I read it in one sitting. It's your normal size book, 340 pages. I can tell you I did not want to put it down and get up to do chores.
I have not read a lot of this authors’ books and she is prolific. Of those I have read I can tell you that the suspense in this one is no different than the others. The tension she creates is something you can feel and the characters she creates so vivid it makes you feel what they feel.
This is an author with a lot of books and great reviews. How could you go wrong? Read it.
