Well, it's a sad day when Jonathan Kellerman disappoints, but that day has arrived. When I saw that there was a new Alex Delaware novel out, I felt that warm feeling of pleasure you get when you just know you're soon going to be settling down with a really good book. After "The Murder Book" and "Gone", both two of Kellerman's best, I could hardly wait.
To say that the book "takes off slowly" would be similar to saying, "in January, molasses is slow". I listened to the entire first half before even a hint of a plot began to emerge. I have never had a problem finding Kellerman's characters fascinating, but in this book the female protagonist (which ever one you pick for that role) was a forgettable person. I barely remembered her name. Even the ending, which (kind of) pulls things together and does pick up, was certainly not enough. Sadly, I cannot recommend this book.

This is one which might have been better abridged or as a hardcopy book. The audiobook was way too long for the story and at times was hard to follow with all the characters and the slow moving plot line. (Would have moved faster in the abridged version!). Not one of the most thrilling thrillers I've come across in a while.
