I purchased this Kindle book based on rave reviews looking for a replacement for the Robert Parker series and a supplement for the Janet Evanovich series which I am currently working my way through with great enjoyment. I quit on this book after 15% of the way through, something I never do. The plot, if there was one, escaped me, perhaps because I find jumping back and forth between characters and their individual story development is more work than I want to put into a pleasure read. But, the character development I thought was also shallow and unsatisfying. Coben is no Parker. I'll keep looking.
