This book is an interesting read and the characters are loveable but I guess some few things looks unrealistic and it reminds me of James Hardly Chase...3 Star is been fair.
Enjoyed getting the back story, I am looking forward to reading more of Mr. Holton's work.When Cole's friend and fellow cop is killed minutes after Cole drops him off at home the police try to pin the murder on Mack's fiancee. Knowing she is innocent Cole goes to work to find the real killer and the trail leads to billionaire Neil DeWitt.The case seems to be closed when Neil DeWitt is killed during his attempt to kill one of the witnesses that can put him at the scene of Mack's death, but Cole believes someone set Neil up. Living out her psychotic fantasy Margo Dewitt is a force to be reckoned with and she has Cole's young son Butch on her list of victims. Will Cole be able to get to her in time to save Butch?
Has the bones of a good story, but pedantically overly sly & to explanatory to be enjoyable.The story is only surface deep & while one must suspend belief while reading any fiction the story is too facile with shallow character development.
Excellent reading and to think this all took place locally and the buildings were all accurate as well as the street listings.
Fantastic - touched many of the organizations that I know and love! A great read and a suspenseful ride across the city.
I actually liked this one which is number two in the series better than the original "Presumed Dead" by this author. If you like Chicago and reading police procedurals I recommend this mystery.
Great book. I am almost done and the bad woman keeps outsmarting the cops. Can't wait to se how this ends.
A fun escape that I enjoyed.
This novel was really good in narrative and storyline. But it didn't had much of a suspense.
