I love a good crime novel and so I tried Coulter for the first time...and it will be the last. It was boring and weakly strung together and hackneyed.
When reading the earlier, "Heiress" works of Catherine Coulter the contrived obvious dialogue seemed cute and campy. In this context of contemporary crime thriller the herky jerky dialogue is tedious and well, contrived. Very disappointing. Sorry I spent my money on this.
