    This could ve been good if he d bothered getting it properly edited or proofread Sadly he didn t, although it does say it s edited by Jennifer Webb at the beginning If I were her I d look at getting into another career cos this one s not for her, if this is anything to go by I had it downloaded already before spotting a couple of reviews pointing this out as well but thought that I might be lucky if I d seen them before downloading I d not have bothered in all honesty I m grateful to This could ve been good if he d bothered getting it properly edited or proofread Sadly he didn t, although it does say it s edited by Jennifer Webb at the beginning If I were her I d look at getting into another career cos this one s not for her, if this is anything to go by I had it downloaded already before spotting a couple of reviews pointing this out as well but thought that I might be lucky if I d seen them before downloading I d not have bothered in all honesty I m grateful to other reviewers who take the trouble to advise if a book s full of mistakes as it does save me the time in bothering and I hope my reviews help others do the same.Glass littered needs a hyphen, parent s should be parents and that was just the initial apostrophe mistake He seems clueless as to when to use them or not Killer s have rights too or Girl get s raped or I m not here to cross tees and dot I s.a crash course is needed Around half a dozen times he writes laundry mat which doesn t exist I m pretty sure he means laundromat.I was totally lost when Hudson was asked to take on a cold case by her boss and she said, So you want me to go down there and phone it in, Nick, is that what you re asking of me Not sure what this means at all This line used the wrong word altogether Well my guys say there were provoked and he has a terrible habit of using commas as opposed to fullstops, sometimesthan once in the same sentence Just exceedingly sloppy As is..and no car insight He refers to GHB the date rapist s favourite but this story is set in the 1980s and it wasn t utilised like this till the 1990s I got to Friday Morning had arrived and packed it in at 30% Less than a third of the way in and I d encountered all these mistakes No way was I carrying on There areerrors but I just can t quite be arsed to type any of them out.The story was quite interesting but its content was sadly totally eclipsed by the appalling presentation Such a waste

    Couldn t put it down It took me too long to enjoy the suspense I loved the character of Leah, FBI agent It s a nice thriller to enjoy the working of courtrooms and detectives.How painful is to see the corrupt system around the world Everything is available for money Certainly there arechallenges for the honest one to work but Leah done her best Handling a cheating fianc is not that easy but she proved herself.

    This was an interesting story and the 1st one that I have read The story leads with her attempting to convict a Drug Dealer for Murder, however, the case is put on hold because the wiretap could not be used She was then reassigned to a cold cas looking for Gloria who went missing over 5 years ago.The reason this was done was because her boss was worried about her because of the Drug Case murder trial.This cold case basically had no clues and she had to start right from the beginning Based on This was an interesting story and the 1st one that I have read The story leads with her attempting to convict a Drug Dealer for Murder, however, the case is put on hold because the wiretap could not be used She was then reassigned to a cold cas looking for Gloria who went missing over 5 years ago.The reason this was done was because her boss was worried about her because of the Drug Case murder trial.This cold case basically had no clues and she had to start right from the beginning Based on her perseverance, she was able to develop some possibilities and this cold case turned into a serial murder search Following what little clues she had, she came up with various suspects and in the end she almost became a victim herself With the aid of her partner Jimmie, she was able to bring this case to a conclusion and on returning home she almost became another victim.The ending wrapped up the story quite well and I recommend this story a great deal
