Suspenseful, great story

This was a great read all the way through. This is my first book by John Hart. I like to switch up genres and this delivered - great characters, story that pulled you in from the get-go. This was one of my favorite recent books. I will definitely read more from this author.

All Done

This was the third John Hart novel I've read and it is the last. All three had a similar theme consisting of the misunderstood, outcast protagonist hounded by cops with tunnel vision. Add to that a narrator who makes the main characters sound like they are about to slip into a coma. Three is enough.
