2.0 out of 5 stars Just not very good, November 25, 2007
This review is from: Frozen (Mass Market Paperback)
I've heard a lot about what a great, visual writer Bonansinga is and I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't get into it. It is filled with inconsistencies and labored writing that just doesn't grab the reader and drag him or her along the way a great thriller is supposed to do. It isn't very thrilling--in fact, it's rather boring, with the main idea never very clearly delineated or developed. The lead character, FBI profiler Ulysses Grove, isn't a very compelling character, yet he seems to be the protagonist in a series of books that follow this one. I read this after coming across a rave review, but I consciously had to force myself to keep reading (I should have given up and gone on to something else, but just kept going, hoping it would get better, but it never did). The negative reviews here do a good job of outlining the book's many flaws, though I think it's better than a one-star review. Not much better, though.
