My review:
I love the characters in this book - they are very real and quite flawed. Bell is one of the best writers of dialogue I've come across. I love a book that keeps me glued to the page with great suspense and storytelling and laughing at the quick and witty dialogue. I can't wait the read the the third book, Try Fear. If you like mystery/suspense books, you will Love this one.
