Customer Reviews

The plot was great & the characters were very well developed.
Peggy
I enjoyed reading this book, the story flowed well, the suspense was believable, and the ending had a good twist.
Jimmie Bolton
It seemed to be very slow and have so many strange characters that I got a little bored.

I love forensic mysteries and this one certainly had a odd twist in it that I never saw coming. Very engaging from beginning to end, Reilly Steel is a likeable character in a difficult situation. Not really science heavy, so you don't need to be a chemist to understand it, and the clues are all tied together in the end. Finished it in two days, and even with my favorite TV shows entering into new seasons, I found I'd much rather be reading this book than watching the TV.

I was enjoying the book and looking forward to the solution to the mystery when suddenly "Reilly threw a door open and ran straight into the barrel of a .38." Then: END of Part One! Come on! If this book isn't complete tell the reader up front! Don't let them get to the end of Part One and then find out we have to buy another book. I would have given this book a 5 star but no way on this deal!

This is excellent. I only read free books on my kindle and after slogging though the last dozen or so feared that I would have to return to the library for a good read.

This story is well developed, with an excellent plot and characters you would actually like to meet because you have learned something about them and who they are.

For those who care, the book has no misused or misspelled words. The story flows smoothly and effortlessly. Events unfold perfectly to reveal the identity of the killer and the culmination of the tale.

Bought this book for 0 and still paid more than it was worth. This book does not end. It is only Part One. With a boring beginning and lots of excessive prose I stuck with it until something interesting happened then a message came on asking for money to continue reading. NEVER will I buy this authoragain!

If u want to charge for a book then do so.....don't hide behind the open invitation to enjoy a suspense and then charge for the conclusion.

This was a good book. It started out a little slow but caught up with itself.
I did enjoy reading this book and you will too just give it a few and off you go.
I am the type of person that likes a good mystery and always give the book a few chapters to get the feel of the story. So if you are like me and you like a good mystery....murder mystery....then read this book!

The story line is great if you're a CSI/mystery fan!!! :-)

I would have given a higher rating if it hadn't been for grammatical errors!! (Sorry, I'm a stickler for that sort of thing.)

Most of the books I read are mysteries, police investigations, serial killers etc etc, I prefer to be challenged. I had it figured out long before Reilly. Really?, she couldn't figure it out? The clues were so so obvious. This made her look like a terrible investigator, unless that was the intent, which I don't think it was. And then to make Chris's illness such a big deal throughout the story and then to close that portion the way it was, lame. Very very disappointing.
