not up to Roberts' usual standard

  • Jun 13, 2011
I picked this up in an airport bookshop, when my plane got stuck in Atlanta. High Noon wasn't a bad read and certainly kept the boredom at bay as I waited for my flight to depart, but it wasn't up to Roberts' usual standard.

The plot is laid out above and I will say that the characters were interesting by the end of the novel. Unfortunately, it seemed like two much was going on with the thriller plot to allow Roberts to flesh out the characters early enough for me to really connect. By the time we got around to Duncan's backstory I wasn't even that interested in learning about it which is a shame. Too many characters and way too many subplots made this a messy read for me; I think the bones of the plot were good, but the editor should have put this book on a diet.

I find it interesting that the problems suffered by Phoebe's mother did not get resolved in the blink of an eye through the intervention of the hero; for that alone the book probably deserves 3.5 stars.
