This was a suspense-filled book that I completed in 1-1/2 days. Twists when totally unexpected. I will definitely read another book by Daly - enjoyed it immensely.

I could not put this book down! Definitely one of the best thrillers I have read all year, and I have read a lot of them!

Terrible book - terrible writing. The characters are two dimensional and not at all likeable or believable. Implausible storyline, a complete waste of time.
