I was very disappointed with Rosenfelt's latest book, a stand-alone from his Andy Carpenter series. The characters seemed to exist only on paper - I never shook the feeling that they were simply figures created by the author to mouth words written by the author. It also seemed odd to me that Rosenfelt would follow his most recent Andy Carpenter novel ("Play Dead")with another story involving an exploded boat and a missing-and-presumed-dead love interest of the lead character. I felt as if Rosenfelt wrote this book so he could follow an alternative storyline he'd had to leave behind in "Play Dead."

I too, was terribly disappointed and I wish the other reviews had been up when I bought this. I got about half way though this and simply couldn't get involved enough to even finish it, which is really rare for me. I have read all the Andy Carpenter books and based on those I rate Rosenfelt as one of my top 10, fun, interesting authors. I adore his other books, but this felt like a weak attempt to emulate Harlan Coben (excellent books, though they can be somewhat dark & disturbing). I really hate to say it, but skip this one.
