Dr. Riva Parker Grey, Md and Chief of Police Salem Grey go to Las Vegas where Riva is to be the Keynote Speaker at a forensic conference. They meet old friends, but quickly get drawn into a strange series of murders. As the bodies begin piling up the twists and turns fueled by lies, deceit and unruly children make the investigators feel as though they keep making unneeded or wrong turns in a giant maze.
Disclaimer to my blog readers: this is not a Christian book.
I read and reviewed the first book in this series and enjoyed it so I was looking forward to this book.
I like the idea of it, how is started out was interesting and then . . . I struggled. There were no charters I liked, until Riva and Salem showed back up. Until then I couldn’t stand any of the characters. They are all self-centered and just a real mess.
Also, for some reason the writing style felt different to me. There was a lot of dialogue using people’s names as they spoke and then almost everyone had a nickname. This felt unnatural to me.
This is for sure a labyrinth and I had no idea where it was going, it did keep me guessing. But for me, not liking the characters really made this book different to read.
A copy of this book was given to me. All opinions are my own.
