    I found this book difficult to get through It was well written, and absorbing, but the content was quite confronting I thought the main character had hit bottom, and then went even further The book built up nicely, with a bunch of twists, some expected, some unexpected The climax was a little disappointing, but it turns out it wasn t the major climax, which snuck up on me The resolution was a little rushed, but I suspect it leads into the next book in the series I am not certain if I will I...

    Good read, although if she had not gotten off the alcohol when she did I would have stopped reading The mail character, Lorraine Page was a Police Officer, a lieutenant actually, and she kills a young boy who is running away from her and he was not armed, she was drunk at the time She was a hard character to get to like, but Lynda LaPlante gets the job done Lorraine get...

    To be honest I lost interest simply because of how long it took for this book to start And it doesn t matter how good an ending is, a unnecessary slow start to a novel dilutes any greatness the novel could have had I would like to try another fr...

    The first Linda La Plante book I have read based in the U.S and for the most part I enjoyed it It was a little slow at times and some of the situations I found a bit implausible but overall good.
