Edmond Gagnon‘s review

Apr 25, 2017  


I grabbed this book out of a pile, thinking it was James Patterson, but like many other books that have his name blazoned across the cover it was written by someone else. This one’s by Maxine Paetro, my least favorite in the top dog’s kennel.
The plot is descent and I do like the Lindsay Boxer character, but I thought the author pushed the envelope a few times in the story, making it a bit ridiculous. I think it’s the author’s voice that just doesn’t do it for me, with words like “kiddo” that are repeatedly used to describe children.
Being male, I felt this novel was written for a female audience. Almost all the main characters are women and the author’s femininity weighed heavy in the story. It didn’t sit right with me, being a former cop who worked with many women and found it a lot different than what’s depicted in this book.
