I bought this after reading the reviews on Amazon and could hardly put it down once I did. The style of writing is easy to read, and the pace is just right. I loved the way the protagonists mind worked and felt like I was there in his thoughts, working the case, with him. I have been reading some heavier stuff of late and this was a welcomed lighter change. I would have given four stars, but I neither laughed, cried, not had my heart in my throat throughout the book. Still, I'd highly recommend this book.
