Boy, as much as I tried, I just couldn’t get into this book. In fact, as I was reading, many times I thought, “Really???”. I also never did connect with or care about any of the characters, unlike the Virgil Flowers and Lucas Davenport protagonists. I am 71 years old and made a promise to not waste my time thinking I had to finish every book I started. Well, I fulfilled my promise on this one and stopped trying to care at page 268.
