from the book jacket

Review:  This book fell flat for me.  The characters were very flat and one-dimensional which lead me to not understand why characters acted the way that they did.  From the plot description I thought it would be a very interesting and engaging story and while I wanted to know whether the man accused of murder was the donor or not, I didn't really care for how the story progressed.  The whole story was quite unbelievable.  There was no motivation behind the murders even once we find out for sure who did it.  I've read one other book by Lisa Scottoline and while it was simplistic story it was enjoyable.  This one does not make me want to read another book by her.

Rating: 2 1/2 stars
