I wish I could have given this book 10 stars--it is that good. It is an amazing book that I will not soon forget. You can't help but fall in love with Jake and Cody. What an incredible pair they are. Jake has a unique way of bringing humor and light-heartedness to serious situations. I found myself bursting into laughter at some of the “play-on-words” Jake expresses.

The book took so many twists and turns it had me on the edge of my seat practically the whole time I was reading. The detail in the book is exquisite. It is a hard book to put down. It definitely kept me wondering what came next and what was going to happen to Jake and Cody. The book definitely leaves one wanting more.

If you like playing detective, you will love this book.

He skillfully introduced all the characters throughout the book and what a cast it is. My emotions were all over the place as I read. I'm so looking forward to the next book.

I loved the plot and the characters. However, there were so many pages of "filler" explaining and re-explaining back stories of the assorted characters, that wonderful plot was bogged down it and was a chore to read it. I found myself just skimming through the 800+ pages to read the good parts. I also found myself skimming or skipping the "veteran's banter" between Jake and Terrell as well as all the bad guys prolonged conversations - just 1 or 2 pages would have set the stage so the reader would understand those relationships.

I would happily give this book 5 stars if about 400 pages of filler was edited out. bc

Just when you think there will never be more captivating, loveable and witty characters in a high octane crime story, along comes photojournalist, Jake Wolfe, who witnesses the killing of an arrogant attorney, and the savvy Lieutenant Inspector Terrell Sanders, who works with the San Francisco Police Department and is called in to handle the case, along with his no nonsense partner, Sergeant Beth Cushman. The fact that Jake and Terrell are best friends, and his partner, Beth, make for a superb read from start to finish, matching wits with meticulous, cold blooded assassin known as The Artist. The story has multi-ethnic characters that are humorous, kind, strong, engaging, patronizing, cunning and wicked. Then you have Sergeants Cori Denton, a certified kook, and her partner Ray Kirby who will protect her zealous disposition at any cost because cops don’t snitch on cops. There is non-stop pandemonium, international intrigue, twists and turns, secrets and lies and many plotlines that eventually come together with an ending that that will shake you to the core and leave you asking, “When it comes to present technology, how much privacy do we really have?” If you are a fan of the Alex Cross character, then you will be an admirer of Terrell Sanders, and you will also enjoy the strong female characters that make this story a great read.

This was a fairly highly rated book, and I have a formula for buying books on Amazon. This met my criteria. I have to give the author credit for a very solid storyline and plot. However, the execution was poor. I commend the author for doing the work, and getting it published, which is more than I can say for myself. A great author or teacher used the phrase "you must be ready to kill your 'babies'",meaning, that though you may be attached to a certain passage, paragraph or piece of dialog, you have to self edit MERCILESSLY, or have an editor do it for you. I only got about 7% through the book and can say that, in my opinion, at least 25% of the content could be removed to tighten up the story, and keep it moving. Mr. Nolan, please don't misunderstand my intention - I am simply offering one man's opinion, but a good editor or beta readers would help you immensely. I'd be happy to be included in your next foray.

I was asked to review the book and when I read the preview of the story I said okay.

I gave this a 4 star because I liked the premise of the story. I liked the characters and the forward motion of the story.
I was having trouble trying to explain what bothered me when I was reading the book. About a third of the way through the story I wanted to quit. I would be reading and getting into story and then the mood would go somewhere else and I would sit there wondering what happened. Is this book for young adults or regular fiction. ???? There was too much filler, banter and mutual admiration going on for my taste.

I think the author shows great promise he just needs to fine tune his writing.

Also, note that I am much much older and really wonder if I am qualified to review books.

This book is at least twice as long as most books I read. I wish I could give it twice as many stars. WOW! Someone make this into a movie. The author asked if I would like to read his book. I am so glad he did. A fantastic action adventure. I look forward to the further adventures of Jake and Cody. This story made me laugh, cry, my heart pound and if I were a nail biter I would have been chewing on them. Do yourself a favor and read this exciting book. I have already told my husband that he will thoroughly enjoy it also.
