This superbly written story starts with a tax lawyer who gets in trouble with a gangster. The author shows us early on just how awful the gangster is, and when he threatens the lawyer’s son and the son’s girlfriend (who’s got brains galore), the story turns into a nail-biting adventure that keeps going until the last page. And with a twist I could never have imagined.
I give Brier five stars for the same reasons someone else tagged him with two. Yes, the book is similar to riding a roller coaster. Yes, you will not know who will win in each chapter. Yes, the book’s crammed full of twists and turns. And yes, there are good and bad guys, all of which are incredibly entertaining. Anyone starting this book will definitely read on to the surprising—and greatly satisfying—end.
I just pre-ordered Brier's second book, and if it's half as good as the first, I won't be disappointed.
I enjoyed the thriller aspect of the novel, loved the romance, and pondered the literary realm of Grayson's world. Though I understood some of his rationale, I despised the kind of father he was. And yet he wriggled his way into my heart so that I felt sorrow for him, sorrow that he was so blind for too long, and a worse kind of blindness than that which afflicted his son. It’s a good read, and I’d recommend it to anyone.
I started reading this mystery at 10:00 pm and could not put it down until I had finished it at 9:00 am the next morning. I was totally hooked waiting to read the next chapter as the plot unfolded. I was kept guessing throughout the evening and early morning intrigued by the story and amused by the clever humor laced throughout its chapters. If you are a mystery fan like I am, this will be one of your favorites.
