this book was fairly typical as far as a mystery book goes . the carechters were okay as far as being typical as well . The plot was really good however it was pretty predictable with the ending . I thought I was going to enjoy this one far more than I did and that was disappointing to say the least . I like to settle down with a book at night but frankly this one put me to sleep well before I was ready for it . Do yourself a favor and skip this one . Not really a liker on my list .
