    This was an excellent and well written book It WAS NOT a great mystery Believe me even Forrest Gump could have followed the trail the author left here HOWEVERPatterson explores a terrifying custody battle between a woman and her narcissticsociopathic husband His charming personality appears to be convincing everyone mental health professionals court liasons etc he is nothing but a doting loving concerned father Meanwhile he is torturing his wife with his accusations etc At least until he apparently commits suicide Soon her boyfriend Christopher Paget a character Patterson has used before is charged with murdering her ex husband and a legal battle begins While I was able to put the pieces of the mystery together and figure it all out uite easily I don't really think that's the purpose of this novel Patterson writes a uality story about how accusations can destroy people and relationships and tells a realistic story about the emotional impact even while dealing with a murder mystery and a legal thriller I have read several by Patterson and will probably continue to do so He is a good writer and explores issues that are deeper than the mystery Usually his red herrings and misdirections are artfully done this time I think he wanted the reader to put it together

    This book was neat I have read the true crime novels and you didn't get a lot of background info on the individual person It was point by point the details of how the crime went down And the cases And no back ground info This book gave you a good back ground story on their characters You got to feel for them You got to figure out their history and their lives and everything good THEN you heard about the trial Of course it's not real so things that happened wouldn't be allowed in real court But it was almost exactly what I was looking for when I started reading the true crime novels And the ending wasn't a total let down Maybe I should stop being so picky It was a long book and sometimes I kinda felt a drag But I was easily able to overcome that and was able to finish it So I would recommend this book to people who like mysteries

    This one kept me guessing right up to the end about whodunitFull of twists and turning amid mounting tension just the way I like a thriller to be

    I'm still trying to figure what the title had to do with how the story plays out Elena the child witnesses and experiences horrible things but her age 6 years old has most of the adults making pretzels out of themselves to contain her experiences and shape her life into normalcy so much so she primarily is either given a chapter or two showing us bad dreams about a dog or she is living a normal life while the adults wonder why she is a bit sad Until all is revealed at the end the reader can only suspect what happened to her but while she is definitely important to everyone's motivation Elena's eyes are never part of the plot 'Love is Blinding' maybe or 'Love Hurts' The adults were children with momentous childhoods but only Teresa Terri Peralta's eyes as a child saw things which marked her psychologically This affected her choices as an adult but not irreparably or destructively Terri ended up being a lawyer and a good mother her only problem being her choice of husband which she decides to fix by getting a divorce Everything goes horribly wrong when Richie the husband is murderedBesides the inappropriate title the book is lifeless for the first 100 pages killed by too much endless conversation between Richie and Terri which beats the reader over the head with Richie's character flaws and selfishness while it is obvious he is an asshole he is a remarkably normal ex husband to be asshole towards Terri using Elena for blackmail and vengeance in the usual thousand cuts manner but unfortunately for the reader described too much in too many pages and way too much repetitious spelled out agonizing by the lovers Terri and lawyer Christopher Paget while they are trying to BE lovers during Terri's separation from Richie I found myself doubting a love could really develop between a couple so full of resentful emotions and fearsOnce past the first 100 or so pages though and laying aside the uestion about how Chris and Terri fell deeply in love despite the severe pressures successfully created by Richie the novel revs up into a decent legal thriller as advertised There are twists and turns with true noir surprises leading to everybody doubting each other Eventually everyone is suspecting each other of Richie's murder yet in court plausible lies must be served up to a skeptical judge and jury Meanwhile Elena appears to have been sexually abused but by who? The evidence seems to point at Carlo Chris's son This new suspicion fractures all relationships almost beyond endurance I found the trial to be an interesting dissection of what happens when smart and self serving individuals collide with genuine trouble especially when everyone is playing for high stakes and protecting peripheral secrets How most of the characters chose to 'shape the narrative' fascinated me However while the psychology behind the action makes this a book worthy of reading as it rings true to life except for Chris and Terri falling in love in the first place as does much of the divorce maneuvering the incredibly awful first 100 pages setting up the thrills really maimed the book for me It was like listening to girl teenagers on a bus talking about what to wear to a birthday party for an hour agonizing and analyzing It really needed cutting down in my opinion

    The third in a series featuring Christopher Paget this is an excellent read Christopher's associate Teri Peralta leaves her manipulative and abusive husband Child custody issues arise and suspicions of child molestation begin to infuse the story As Teri and Christopher begin a relationship complications seem to destroy their chances of creating a stable family for their children Christopher's fifteen year old son Carlos becomes a central figure in the accusations and suspicions Richie Teri's estranged husband is murdered and Christopher is arrested and tried for the crime The book is fairly clued which means there's no excuse for not realizing the real perpetrator of the crimes for there is than one A very entertaining and engrossing book

    The very first page a minor character from book two gets murdered By page 50 I would have pulled the trigger myself Patterson lays the groundwork for a riveting tale then pulls you through peaks and valleys of emotion So many unexpected plot twists that the expected twists surprise you when they show up

    This author puts Grisham to shame so many twists and turns Great story teller this is one fantastic book

    This story is about a woman Terri who leaves a terrible relationship and falls immediately into a new one with her boss Chris Her garbage ex Richie pursues full custody of their daughter Elena using every dirty tactic he can think of And then he ends up dead with the likely suspects being Terri and Chris The whole idea is a perfect setup for a great storyI gave this book a right in the middle three stars because there were parts I really enjoyed and parts that annoyed meFirst THE ANNOYING I did not buy into Terri and Chris's relationship This may be because I have not read the previous two books but it all felt too abrupt There was a lot of talking about how much they loved each other but I didn't really believe or feel it or even care about them Chris and his attorney had much chemistry Next I didn't find Terri especially likable I didn't understand why she had to startpursue this relationship immediately And she continued knowing it was causing issues with the custody case No she shouldn't have to wait to start her new life but the situation was what it was and it felt like she was putting immediate gratification above her child Also it often seemed like Patterson was trying extra hard to give her a personality There was a weird tennis scene that just had me rolling my eyes afterwards and wondering what the point was I didn't hate her; I just didn't like her that muchAlso there was a trip to Italy that I didn't care for The point of the trip to Italy was to establish an alibi and again to try to delve into who Terri was and to further their relationship but it felt pointless and endless I'd say that 75% of it was totally unnecessaryA last minor nitpick is that the narrator always called Chris by his last name Paget though the other characters did not which was a bit distracting There was probably a point to it but I didn't get it WHAT I DID LIKE Everything and everyone in the courtroom and surrounding the trial The courtroom mechanics were uite fascinating Chris Caroline the judge the jurors and even the prosecuting attorney were all fleshed out likable and intriguing This is what saved the book for meI was kept guessing about the murder if not about what was going on with Elena which I guessed pretty early on I'm usually pretty good at guessing who did it but I was unsure of the murder all the way until the reveal this time I like that a lotWhile Richie was a total scumbag his villainy was uite enjoyable in a love to hate him kind of way The psychological insight regarding both him and Elena was also uite interesting So I liked this book than I was annoyed by it I'd definitely read others by Patterson including in this series Even though it was long I got through it fairly uickly and did always look forward to picking it back up So I would say go ahead and check this one out if you like courtroom drama I might suggest reading the other Chris Paget books first just perhaps to further establish the TerriChris connection but it's not necessary

    Took a long time on this book partially because end of school year and household plumbing drama but also due to the intense who done it legal drama that seemed easier for me to read on the train than at home as there are less distractions While the outcome wasn’t too surprising the weaving suspense of the story was splendid

    The beginning of this book was really good I read it because I love Jodi Picoults and this book seemed similar to the ones she writes This book was only 560 pgs but it seemed to drag after a while I read exactly half of the book and then I couldn't finish it because it was just being dragged out
