This is a long book without sufficient plot to sustain its length. I could have chopped 50-75 pages out of this book without changing the book one bit. It is also loaded with characters and it takes a while to get them all straight in your mind.

Having voiced those minor criticisms, it is a very good read with a really different story line. Plus, it was offered free for the Kindle as an introduction to Mr. Flynn's writing. He has written better books but I don't think anyone will be disappointed if this is their first read of his.

This is probably the best free book I've gotten from Amazon. It's well-written and the plot twists are great. The characters are a little flat - or do I mean undeveloped? - but I was so caught up in the plot I didn't really notice and, frankly, it wouldn't have been the same book with more emphasis on character development. I liked it very much.

This story was way too long and had several many-page boring parts that I basically skimmed over and skipped. I decided about three times I was not going to finish reading this story, but continued to read after taking a break to read several other stories, only because I cannot leave a story unfinished, it conflicts with my OCD.

This story could have been told in about 1/4 the length and been just as, if not more, effective. The premise of the story is good and very unique, but the climax that is built up to throughout the story is kind of anti-climactic when you get there. The author seems to have a good grasp of the English language and can spell (a refreshing change), but just seems to add a lot of filler into the story that doesn't add a lot of detail.

I didn't appreciate the digs towards the end of the story about Republicans and gun owners. I'm not sure if this was an intentional agenda or just the author's personal politics creeping into the story.

Mr. Flynn, leave out the politics and gun views, shorten it up, and I will read more of your stuff. But if this is your way to push your politics (no matter the view, I don't pick sides), forget it, I'm out. There is enough politics in the news every day, no matter who you watch, and I read fiction to take a little break from it.

This is my first experience with Joseph Flynn and I would have to say that it was satisfying and that I will add him to my "To Read" list. I did find the plot overly complex and the list of characters a bit too long, but I managed to keep going and enjoyed the various twists and machinations. The ending may have been a little underwhelming and simplistic but overall, a worthwhile read. I'm not sure if the protagonist will show up in Mr. Flynn's other books but it might be interesting to follow his career and character development.

It's much longer than it needed to be, and really started to drag. Many of the characters were too consistently glib to be believable. But overall, it was an enjoyable read, especially at the price.

This book has an unusual storyline with many twists and turns. It starts out as a basic mystery of a school receiving all sorts of odd mail, but then we get the point of view of the "comers" and find things in this town are much more complex then we first thought.

I am like a kid at Christmas when I discover a good mystery series (especially if the whole thing is available on Kindle Unlimited :~). However, it's a rare treat indeed to come across an author whose multiple seriess, and standalone novels are ALL exceptional. Characters are real & imperfect & passionate. The good guys really are Good Men (and Women). To a book each one is thoughtful, smart, funny, engaging, unpredictable. I've now read 1 complete series, I'm partially through 2 others & have read 3 standalone books by Joseph Flynn. Keep 'em comin Joe!

The crazy antics in this book are wonderful even if the armed siege gets a little over the top. A couple of plot twists to make sure you are paying attention - a good read.
