For one thing, there were way too many points of view, and the switches were too frequent. I almost got dizzy from all of the switching from one scene to the next to the next.
Next, the author made a lot of incorrect word usages. Examples: several times throughout the book, we saw the characters "pouring over" various documents instead of "poring over" them. That would make for some pretty wet documents! Also, in one conversation, one character refers to another as being "droll" because he is too serious. (The definition of droll is whimsically humorous.)
And finally, the religion in this book seemed to be dropped in randomly and gratuitously. Also, some of the so-called Christian behavior seemed more religious fanaticism than true faith. And since the subtitle of this book is The Shefford Files, and because I know there are others with Zoe Shefford as one of the main characters, having her "gift" be deemed as evil seems counter-intuitive to the series.
I found myself being distracted by all of these things while reading the book, which doesn't make for a great reading experience. The author has good story ideas, but is in need of an editor.
I settled into it very quickly, the author has written a good, fast-paced book which kept me engaged.
As with all romance themes (beside the crime) the hero, JJ, and the heroine, Zoe, have a love-hate relationship which sometimes became a little wearisome, but I could over look that because of the twisted plot. I couldn't buy that Zoe's psychic abilities were in conflict with the church, because in my opinion, it is HOW ones uses unusual abilities which counts.
I did think there could have been a little less inter-twining of the crimes, but overall I enjoyed this.

This book was pretty intense. I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn't real, it was just a story.Read more
