Does this novel redeem the writer after Rage? No, but I did enjoy this one. This was solid thriller but not my favorite in the series. Alex’s love life is still more unsolvable than any of the murder cases. That said we say Hi to an old friend and goodbye to another. Overall it will keep the pages turning and you guessing. Decent twist at the end but nothing earth shattering. All in all, this book is worth picking up in the series.
