Reader Reviews
More stupidity than you can shake a stick at, August 13, 2003 Reviewer: A reader from Plano, Texas USA I am unemployed. Perhaps I'm qualified to be a police chief of a town on the southern Florida coast. When someone has obviously bugged my phone, I use it to coordinate strategy with the FBI during a crisis. When someone is obviously trying to kill me, I post a lone cop outside my home to protect me. Call me paranoid, but I'm not feeling secure. Certainly, when my Doberman, who is used to frolicking in the dunes alone, will not enjoy my company when she needs to relieve herself during a time that someone is trying to kill me. But Holly, she's a different breed of law enforcer. She takes the dog for a walk. Uh-huh. Someone who has bugged my phones is obviously incapable of knowing who I'm sleeping with, so when I'm on the lam, it would never occur to them that I'm at his home, which is just down the beach from my own home. It always helps to have enemies who are dumb as rocks. So dumb that I continue to commute to and from work each day and they have know clue where I'm currently living. Here's a gem. Page 200 of the paperback. "Harry, do you ever have the feeling that this business is bigger than..." To which Harry, the ever-sharp FBI man responds, "No." Nothing like a Fed who can envision the possibilities. I assumed who the bad guy was at the beginning of the book. Hmm...Maybe I should give some thought to being a novelist. I'm obviously qualified. At least I wouldn't waste space with countless conversations that begin with, "Holly Barker". Even an amateur knows a better way to get to the point than detail every trivial bit of conversation. But I guess that's too much to expect of a professional writer who's obviously on cruise control. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition
