The only way I could get thru the melodramatic narration was to imagine this as a take-off from Saturday Night Live on a detective show - reminded me of that bad acting by William Shatner on his detective show - people (and I hope cops) just don't talk this way. But if you think of it as a spoof - it is quite funny.

If this was a stand alone story or the first in a series it would be a much better story, but the fact that Mr. Patterson forgets so much of the history of the first book detracts from the main character, Lindsay Boxer. While the story itself is solid and has its twists, as it should, like any good story, I find that I was disappointed with the characters more and more as the story went on. Characters that are supposed to the the brightest in the city are missing glaring clues and not doing simple things to catch the bad guy. Now I realize that some of these simple things would make a "bad read", so I do not hold that against Mr. Patterson, but ,without revealing a "spoiler", no one picked up on Lindsay's savior (By the time you get to it, you'll already figure it out!).
If I could have given this story a three and a half, I would have, but since I have enjoyed other pieces of Mr. Patterson's work before, I decided to give him a "true 2nd Chance." The first book in the series I really enjoyed, this book is a mild let down, hopefully a third book in the series will be forthcoming to see if this will be a series that I will continue enjoy.
