Reviews

TV personality Grace's (coauthor, Objection!) fiction debut starts out as a compelling story about an Atlanta-based assistant DA who wins her case against a serial killer. But as it tracks her relocation to New York, her second career as a therapist, and the murder of her young female patients by a copycat killer, subplots that seem at odds with the main story, any growth of suspense is hindered. An improbable ending further disappoints. However, Kate McIntyre's (A Life That Matters) exemplary narration-she makes each character distinct and unique-helps to mitigate the flip-flopping story lines. Recommended for followers of Grace and fans of James Patterson. [The Hyperion hc, published in August, was a New York Times and Publishers Weekly best seller.-Ed.]-Gloria Maxwell, Metropolitan Community Coll.-Penn Valley Lib., Kansas City, MO Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

TV personality and bestseller Grace (Objection! with Diane Clehane) makes her fiction debut with a less than compelling thriller starring a heroine much like herself, Hailey Dean, a highly successful Atlanta assistant DA who loses her fiance to violence. After a final courtroom triumph, the conviction of chef Clint Burrell Cruise for the murder of 11 prostitutes, Dean resigns her prosecutor post and moves to Manhattan, where within two years she has a new career as a therapist. When someone starts to murder her patients with an m.o. similar to Cruise's, Dean becomes a suspect. Rather implausibly, neither the NYPD nor Dean is aware that Cruise has been released from prison after the reversal of his conviction on appeal. Little inconsistencies, like calling Cruise "the most prolific serial killer ever to stalk the city of Atlanta," even though many would award that dubious honor to real-life child-killer Wayne Williams (referred to in the text), don't help.
