Interesting Read

3 5 1
This is a quick read for mystery fans who don't have enough time for a full novel. The action starts literally with a bang, pulling you into the story. The pacing is fast and the short story is sprinkled with lots of characters who race to beat the ticking clock. The excitement kept me turning pages. I haven't read other books in the series featuring the lead character, Adam Larsen, and maybe that's why I felt like I didn't get to know him as well as I'd liked in this story. However, the dialogue is natural sounding as the suspense builds. A good, fast-paced mystery for fans of the genre. Originally posted at Long and Short Reviews.

Keeps You Guessing

This book was fun because it kept you guessing. The main character's flippant smartass conversation style reminded me of the Stone Barrington series. The plot continued to build and twist clear to the end.
