Confession: I live about 10 miles from "Coopers Mill". I am familiar with all the streets, towns, landmarks, etc mentioned in the story. This increases my enjoyment. I did like "A Field of Red" a bit more but this was good. A couple nitpicks. A character takes an iPhone from another and sends out texts. These phones are password protected so not plausible. Frank works out each morning so is said to be in good shape. Basically he is an alcoholic and has a poor diet so these things don't jive.
Fell in love with the character, Frank Harper, and the story lines. Great action, relationships. Fun read. The first was still my favorite. This one can get more predictable at times. I still look forward the the next one. And the narrator draws you into the story. He's wonderful.
