I liked the book and the characters. However, I had just finished "Sometimes I Lie" when I read this book and the ending is definitely not on par with that book, so it was a bit of a disappointment. Everything wrapped a little too quickly...a little too predictably. I agree with another reviewer in that it is pretty unbelievable to think they are going to let a distraught mother come along on a SWAT bust. Despite the disappointing ending, I did like the book and the style the author used to tell the story.
