    Not as good as most of the other Linda Fairstein books. Very slow, doesn't inspire you to keep reading, a real disappoitment

    On reading the resume I was greatly looking forward to this book.I was very disapointed, although the story was credible at times, too many pages were bogged down with descriptions of cities and landscapes which I found tedious. There were too many characters poorly described and not developed fully so it was difficult to understand their thoughts and actions.I found myself skimming through this book, I would not recommend it to a friend.

    This is probably only the 4th or 5th book I have given up on.I did persevere for 140 pages but found the plot wasn't developing any and the dialogue was poor.I have visited Manhattan twice and have yet to meet anyone who speaks "smart*ss" as their first language, as did most of the characters in this book {interspersed with a touch of Joe Pesci}I have 2 new books waiting to be read so not prepared to struggle through an unenjoyable book

    In my reading career I have only given up on 2 books and this sadly is one of them. I could just not take to the authors style.We all read the rear cover to see if its what we want and if it is trust the author to tell us the tale. I read the first 100 pages and did not feel the story was about what I envisaged.It seemed very much written for an american audience and was not for me.

    I did not enjoy this book as much as others I have read by Linda Fairstein. I hope the next one is better.
