The first few chapters were insteresting but as I get to know Jack...Let's just say his is not a character that I normally would swoon over. I am not even interested in following his journey. He lack something that I look for in a hero or protagonist. Sure he seems to be a good guy. He is a good leader. But other than that what does he have? I cannot get past the thing where he seems to fall in love with women super fast. There was the dead ex-girlfriend Coleen. He said she loves her yet not enough to get married. Then their's Dr. Shrink, Justine, he also loves her but he slept with Colleen and now he is saying that he like hotellier Amelia Poole and at the end he was knocking at Justine's doorstep.
I like the murder mystery but not as much as much as I am expecting it to be. Maybe it is because I read too much heavy action, intense, dramatic novels before this one. To sum it all up, it was an ok book. A quick read and maybe a little over priced.
