Read about halfway through and skimmed the rest. It just got boring.

Tedious and boring. The heroine is not likable at all. I gave up after 50 pages.

Grisly, awful mass market waste of paper. Tough female senior citizen ex-FBI agent – Jack Reacher in drag - pitted against serial killer, noir-style. You don't usually run across female-authored graphic depictions of women's raped and mutilated bodies, so I guess that's some kind of distinction from the rest of the genre.

Most memorable character in a long time. Retired FBI agent with a shady history becomes involved in an unsolved serial murder.

First, three stars is "above average" in this system, so it's a positive review, not a negative one. The story held my interest the whole way and the author writes well. It did have its issues. As a retired FBI agent I can say the author didn't bother to do any research. Her portrayal of the heroine was silly. For example, FBI does not have jurisdiction over serial killers and does not have a homicide squad/division. Agents aren't martial arts experts and females can't disable large men. The copy editing was below average. The funniest blooper was when the heroine put on a pot of coffee and then "poured over" some files. Really? She poured coffee over the files? She meant pored. But I did enjoy it, which says something since I skip half the books I check out based on the first few chapters.

This was a terrific read. I am amazed this is this woman's first book. I read about 20 mysteries a year. This was the best one so far for 2013. It is a great thriller and the main character is one for the ages. I hope she writes 20 more. I was sorry when i had to finish the book . I wanted the book to keep going.

This first novel is violent and bloody, nevertheless it was difficult to put down. Very well researched and written.

I don't understand ANY negative comments about this book. It is one of the best thrillers I've EVER read (and I've read a lot) andone of the best books I've read in a long, long time. I found it riveting- 'specially the end. It may help that I'm a woman of a certain age? Hmmm....

Started out as a really good read and then it just fizzled out. I did not care for the style in which it was written but I did like the storyline.
