As a huge fan of the O'Malley series, I was really looking forward to this book. After I got to the part where Dee Henderson had the lead character be the "author" of those books, I lost interest. I can't seem to start reading it again.
If you're looking for a glorious romance or an uncomplicated light read, look elsewhere. This is a big book. And let me start out by saying that I love big books. It seems like the thicker they are, the more I'm drawn to them.
One thing that I loved about this story was how deep and real the characters were. I honestly feel like Paul Falcon is going to walk right out of Chicago's FBI station with a coffee in one hand and an important case in the other. And of course, being a girl, I love how Paul was such a pursuer. Woman love men who are willing to work for them, and all the little things he did was really what won him Ann's heart.
The whole plot was worked around such crazy stuff, and it all somehow all found it's way intertwined and resolved by the end of the book. I loved it and my only regret is that I didn't pick up a Dee Henderson novel sooner. It was my first book of hers and I found it worked great as a standalone book.
Highly recommended to readers who love a good suspense that will last them longer then a day or two.
