Being picky, I spotted a glitch in the logic of Nora Sinclair being able to so easily get away with the murder of Connor. Nora first poisons Connor with the omelet, then finishes him off with the fizz drink. Then, in Chapter 19, she scrapes the remains of the omelet down the disposal, turns on the disposal, and thoroughly washes the plate, fork, and omelet pan. Okay, that’s cool, she’s covering her tracks. But then, in Chapter 20, she tells the investigating police about the omelet she made for Connor and the moment he said he was feeling sick. It would seem to me that any half-decent police officer would want to get a sample of the omelet to see what might have made Connor sick. And if so, then any half-decent police officer would have been suspicious to discover that the omelet had been flushed down the disposal and that someone (Nora was the only one there) had washed the plate, fork, and omelet pan. It’s a glitch, but I let my suspension of disbelief widen a little bit in order to stay engaged.
In one of the chapters we are introduced to a Tourist, who gets hold off a flash drive, which then is open on a Mac. So far so good, but a sentence later it's said the drive was mounted as drive letter E, which can't happen on a Mac as this is a typical Windows functionality. For some reason, I picked up on it right away.
Few other things that didn't quite fit the description was the 11000-square foot mansion of Connor. While this is a big house, I can easily see a wealthy hedge fund manager living in a significantly larger house. Also, the author speaks of Connor's house having a separate wing; now the house in my mind grew to at least double the size as I can't imagine an 11000-square foot property with separate wings. And why is Connor wearing Dockers? Really a wealthy hedge fund manager wearing $30-$40 pants; I don't think so. The choice of cars is also peculiar, Jaguar XJR and Benz SL; neither car has a wow factor. They are kind of average and not exactly head turners.
I really enjoyed the introduction to the book. Really well written. Each chapter is easy to ready and each sentence effortlessly propels the story forward.
I would say it's more on the lighter side of serial killer novels. Explaining and understanding the killer is one thing, but Patterson seemed set on excusing her as a victim.
I was glad my withers were not continually wrung as why would I pay to be miserable? I hadn't read any of Patterson's books before, but they are defiantly possible holiday reads now.
The plot was a fresh one to me, and the twists were abounding.
Yes, a really fun read.
Tell me a story and keep the pages turning. Honeymoon did that for me.
