I wouldn't put Jonathan Kellerman or this book on the same level as Jeffery Deaver or John Sandford and their Lincoln Rhyme and Prey series, respectively; however, this book did keep me interested enough to see how the mystery would unfold that I kept reading until I finished.
While this genre, on the whole, tends to push the envelope of unbelievability and too-convenient coincidences, this book in particular seemed to really push the envelope. I don't think I believe half of what I was reading, but it was at least well done enough that I was entertained at being along for the ride.
If you like the kind of murder mystery where the clues are unveiled a little at a time and you get to work along with the pros to solve the case, this may be your cup of tea. I like that strategy, which Deaver uses a lot in the Rhyme series.
