I didn't enjoy this book when I first started reading. The main character, Jenna, wasn't a character I liked. I kept reading, knowing this book should eventually get exciting, and I was right. This book was very suspenseful, and Jenna was a very good detective and main character.

I was driven back-and-forth several times among the possible suspects. Maybe some people found this predictable, it sure wasn’t for me. I love being kepped off guard.

Excellent "who dun it" book. While the twist in the story was a little predictable, I never saw the ending coming. Nice work Patterson/Ellis.

I am thrilled with this book. I usually think I know who did what, but he got me again! I love it.

I loved this book! I finished it in three days, probably should have focused on my midterms but I couldn't put it down.

I really enjoyed this story and I hated it when I had to put it down to do ordinary things like prepare meals, children, or sleeping!

A variety of comments - good and not-so-good. I thought this work by Patterson/Ellis was great. Ellis on his own is a terrific author and the duo works well. I couldn't put it down - a real page-turner.

It's not that I don't care about anything besides my job -- it's that the job doesn't let you leave. You see death and misery and suffering, and you don't just click that off when you go home; it doesn't wash off in the shower or vanish with a lover's embrace. You are polluted, toxic, and so you hold back so you don't infect someone else with the poison. You keep part of yourself segregated, hidden.

It's a shrike," I say. "A small bird, yes. No large talons, no great wingspan. Not what you'd think of as a bird of prey. You're right it looks harmless. But guess how it kills its food?"

"Too bad you realized it after you tossed me this gun. Life's a game of inches, isn't it? If it had come to you just a few seconds earlier, I wouldn't be holding this gun. That's gotta sting."

"No one ever leaves alive / The house at 7 Ocean Drive," she says in her best ghoulish horror-movie voice, repeating the poem she'd heard. "Not friend or foe, not man or mouse / Can e'er survive the Murder House."

He makes a noise as he finishes another sip. "No. you're paid to so what I tell you to do."

My uncle gives me a look that I remember seeing as a child that look an adult gives when a kid is being adorably precocious, a combination of pride and annoyance. But in this case, the annoyance is outweighing the pride.
