4. Things you liked and/or disliked about it:
A wonderful wealth of characters; some good and some bad which makes for a nice balance to the plot. A well crafted thriller that kept my attention to the end even though I did figure out who the perpetrator was. The relationship between Rick and Olivia felt very believable. Character development of the late Jennifer.

Note: although this is a series, it is a stand alone novel but I liked it so much I want to go back and start at the beginning.
