The is the very first book that I have read by Alan Cook. The book started off slow but didn't remain that way. It was a good fun read. I had issues at certain parts. 1)Tony is a mid 30's male that sometimes is lusting after a soon to be 18 years old female. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Even though their relationship was platonic, her mother not knowing him pretty much allowed him to have free rein with her. 2) What appears to me to be the gratuitous reference to 911. 3) Having a character who has never [...]

I didn't feel that this book was well written. It also lacked a degree of reality in its plot and main characters. However, I found the main character a little disturbing from his attraction to a girl who from my calculation was at least 14 years his junior, to his constant need to remind himself to behave appropriately, such as trying to remember to empathise with people. It came as a surprise to me that he wasn't actually the murderer.

Pretty bad, actually. I skimmed vast portions. The author couldn't seem to figure out if he was writing some kind of documentary on Hotlines, a romance novel, a story of one man's trials and tribulations with his lack of social skills or a mystery. He tried for all of the above and came out lacking.

I was probably a third of the way through the book when I realized I had read it before. I enjoyed it this time as much as last time; it's a wonderful mystery without all the gore and blood! Good way to slowly move on into good thrillers! The book is well written, well plotted, quick to read, enjoyable and entertaining!

I liked this a lot. First book to read with Kindle and it was a good one. Fast to read, couldn't put it down. Looking forward to read more from the author.
