I saw Eddie's death coming a mile away. Liz's character was a major hacker to be getting into people's banks. She was also hella weak. Kate controlled her and Rob's marriage to the point it was unbelievable. It made zero sense to have Mac, Kate's dad, and even Rose around. Ben, Lou, and a bunch of other characters could've hit the road as well. That's where I feel the author overwhelmed her audience. She spent so much time giving each character their own personality, that it kept other main characters from growing and becoming likable. For example, the doctor who treated Rob: It wasn't necessary to give her that much time and space. I ended up liking her more than any of the other characters. That's not supposed to happen when she's not a main character.
Finally, the ending. Frank being the bad guy was a cheap way out. Seems to me, the author liked Cheryl a bit too much to keep her as the bad guy, even though she made more sense. It wasn't a surprise ending. It was a lukewarm ending. Plus it left a lot of unanswered questions. Cheryl and Frank being there at the exact same instant? I don't buy it.
The plot would have been great with some follow through. I'd read from this author again, however I would stop the second too many characters started showing up.
Oh and one last bothersome detail: Was Kate EVER going to get around to telling her patient that she suffered from multiple personality disorder? Kate needs a new line of business. With all of the breaches of confidentiality, and the lack of informing her patient what was going on with her, I just hope I never have a therapist like her. Also, trying to maintain their confidence by using fake names half the time, and then messing up the other half, just added to the overwhelming list of characters readers had to keep track of.
I'm not really a fan of thrillers, nor of murder mysteries, yet, I really, really like these books. Kate is an unusual character - gutsy, smart, able to take the lead but also willing to let others lead.
I am NOT a fan of the cover - to me, it looks like something from the 19th century. And I felt that where the book slowed down was all the "war councils" where everyone got to have their say. I think the story would've been tighter if they were each cut by about a third. But I liked that there was a substantial network of friends and allies working to solve this together. I also appreciated that when someone was injured (I won't say who) he/she did not immediately leap from death's door to superheroic action figure in two paragraphs; actual time to recover was required.
I found the ending surprising but not implausible, and enjoyed seeing the development of Rose Hernandez from still uniformed cop to major player.
