I'm not sure why it was so highly rated or why it's listed as
"THE TOP TEN AMAZON KINDLE eBOOK BESTSELLER
THE NO. 1 BESTSELLING HARD-BOILED MYSTERY
THE NO. 1 BESTSELLING PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE THRILLER"
With all these endorsements I really expected a book that would keep me on the edge of my seat and with an engaging protagonist. I was let down. I just couldn't connect with the down and out "Keeper". I could understand adding the background and trauma of the Attica riots, but some of the flashbacks and descriptive narrative just seemed like filler to me. And as another reviewer noted elsewhere, whenever the Keeper interacts with women, it's like he's in heat. Maybe that is the author's take on how a newly widowed, single man reacts to every woman he meets, but it seemed a little gratuitous to me.
The involved plot was okay but the main characters weren't fleshed out enough. The real villian and puppetmaster, Pelton, was only nominally interesting. And yes, there are a few typos to detract, but I easily overlooked those. The ending chapters dragged and I felt were kind of just tacked on, not really adding much after the climax and denoument.
I already purchased "Godchild" by the same author and guess I'll give it a go, but I'm not all that enthused.
June 5, 2011 Edit - substituted "Godchild" for "The Remains" in the final sentence.
Will I keep reading this series? Definitely YES!

I am originally from the Hudson valley which made it even more enjoyable. Halfway through The Innocent, I called my son to recommend it especially since he is a detective on the police force. I knew he would enjoy it. I'm looking forward to The Guilty.
