Don't worry. It won't have you staying up late at night to see what happens.

This book shows the skill of a first-time, untrained and untested writer, one who has not investigated the practice or the vernacular of the law enforcement field. Silly childish phrases are tossed in purporting to be the official language of the professional policing world. In addition, it has virtually no character development. If you took a section of description and removed the name of the character, you'd have no hope of guessing who the character was. Even the structure of the novel detracts from its quality. Since the murderer's thoughts are presented to us regularly throughout the book, there is little suspense. It's an easy book to put down.
Just to feel that I was being fair, I read the first book of the second series, book 6 of the overall string, Greed. There was no improvement, and although I would not have thought it possible, character development was even worse.
