This novel is the third book of the King & Maxwell series. It's interesting reading - it's the kind of book to read before falling asleep. The pace plods on a bit at times but it certainly picks up about 70% into the book. The ending is fast paced and furious which is a little like trying to rush through the exit line after a movie or concert. Nevertheless, it won't keep me from reading the other books in the series. I've already started the 4th book. So far so good.
