A well written fast paced book. A surprise ending that doesn't quite pull it off. Nonetheless, a complex, believable story.

John Hart is such a good writer of suspense!!! So many twists that made putting it down pretty much impossible!

This is a very good book - second of his that I have read and I plan to read the rest. This was a well developed mystery that unraveled until the very last page. Twists that you would never of thought of - with interesting characters that you have never met in other books. This is truly one of those books that will get you so deeply involved with that you WILL NOT PUT it down until you reach the last page.

Really enjoyed this book, first time I've read this author, so I'll be looking out for more. Some nice twists and turns as the story progressed, good read.

First time reading this author and hopefully not the last time. Found it to be quite riveting. Five stars from me.

I can't even remember how I found out about this book. Certainly not my usual fare and I opened it up with pretty low expectations. Wow, I will be reading more by John Hart. The reader runs the gamut of emotions and the plot is twisty, turny and keeps you turning the page. Doesn't happen often that I'm unable to guess the ending of a book, but certainly happened here.

Good mystery. Very different ending. My husband didn't like it but I loved the ending. It is gritty. There is violence which I am not a big fan of. I like the redemption element and spirituality of the ending. It is a quirky ending.

Stunning plot twists, feints, and a shocking conclusion. This one has it all. Talk about a page turner!

Hart's latest continues his run of excellent thrillers. All three have definitely been a cut above many others in the genre.

Well deserved 2010 Edgar Award winner.
