The writing is very uneven. Vast stretches are just plain dumb, yet there are moments that are fresh and sometimes genuinely funny. Christian religion is central throughout the story, so you might skip this one if that's bothersome for you. On balance, I liked this one enough to be willing to look at more from this author.
Good reader, better than most.

I chose this particular book because of the unique storyline of the FBI psychic. This selection did indeed have it's moments. Unfortunately it was a rollercoaster ride to nowhere. Moving between bursts of creativity and the worst of Hollywood screen writing. One minute the main character Bernadette's in control ; the next, she's hysterical. She waits forever to use her firearm while her boss is a hostage of a serial killer because it's "not her style." She had mindlessly put him in danger in the first place by acting on a ridiculous whim. At one point she watches the mentally disturbed killer display a lack of a logical thought process; she doesn't understand why a madman might be acting illogically. At times I found myself wanting to scream at the speakers to pass on a simple command that will save her from her own lack of cognition. The climatic scene moves ponderously for an hour and a half. By the end I no longer cared what happened. Passing up on this selection will save you a great deal of frustration.
