Spoiler Alert- Not happy
Reviewed in the United States on February 18, 2018
SPOILER: The whole thing with CP and James made no sense and felt contrived. Plus, I'm still left with the feeling of "I should care about James, why?" We meet him for all of maybe 10 pages and he barely speaks. I also have no idea what he looks like. Not to mention, Tandy can't seem to decide if she's calm and intelligent or OVERLY emotional. Plus her brother's personality keeps changing as well. I feel the only people who remain the same person are Hugo and Matty who are so one-dimensional (muscle heads) that they probably look like flat lines IRL. This installation was a total mess from beginning to end, with roller coaster drama that is unnecessary and boring after the fifth ridiculous emergency. Oh, and the part with Katherine showing up out of the blue made NO sense (How did she find Tandy? Why fake her death? Why not tell Dominick? Why did she meet up with Tandy by grabbing her at night on the street???). Royal would NEVER have taken a shot at a teenage girl for no darn reason (he supposedly doesn't like to get his hands dirty, and just WHY??????? Why Tandy for goodness sake?). Isn't Tandy afraid of hospitals (PTSD anyone)? Why does she willingly check into a mental health institution? Plus, does ANYONE realize the police CANNOT question a minor without legal representation or parents present in most developed countries? Do your research lady (I know James Patterson tapped out on this one and barely skimmed it before putting his name on it). Here's hoping the next one is better.
