    11. A accurate rating would be 3.5 It was an interesting although tragic story with a fascinating main character The plot is well developed and tension and pace are maintained throughout.Unfortunately, the author contradicts himself a few times do they know a full name or not, family death order and has some time line issues things are planned before necessary details are revealed Although in some ways minor, these bugs detract from the quality.

    12. Not a bad book but not a favorite, and that s sad because the main character, an immigrant turned local Lowell Massachusetts cop, has such potential Quick easy read and a good story that held my attention, though there was very little interpersonal relationship development, even with the wife and dqughter That was a real flaw that interfered with my enjoyment of the book.

    14. Very good read Flashback type format, so if you don t enjoy bouncing beyond present and past, don t read it A bit graphic.
