kchidress ,

Good book

Definitely worth reading. I felt like it was similar to John Grisham's books. Twists and turns with some excitement t. I enjoyed it.

Ok book

I wish there was an ending, but I guess it's part of the other books by Locke

Boring

Don't waste your $1.99. If you want to learn about the landmarks and streets navigation of Texas then you'll love this book. Slow plot, no meat!!!!
