Fast Moving and Gripping from Start to Finish!

In the space of the first two chapters, Tim Wallace is almost killed by an explosion on his boat and then he meets a mysterious man who confesses a murdering a woman to him. Thus Rosenfelt's first thriller (other than the Andy Carpenter legal mysteries) immediately grips you and keeps you.

As the story progresses rapidly, Tim leads the police to the body that the man told him about and things start pointing to Tim. Little by little it appears to the police and especially to a "Javert-like" officer that Tim may have murdered both women (his wife was on the boat what it had exploded). Tim has to go into hiding and get his life back and find out who is setting him up.

The book is exciting from start to finish and I didn't give it the full five stars because the author uses the "friend with the convenient out of the way house that could be used for a hideout routine" which has been done too many times. Additionally, the bad guys depend on learning a computer's security system as part of their master plan and the way they do this is very implausible.
