I had great hope for this book. Unfortunately, most of that hope was in vain.
We meet every main character in the book in the first 100 pages — make sure you have a scorecard, because you may have a hard time keeping track of who’s who after a while. The plot starts quickly, and then drags for a long time in the middle of the book. It got to be a real struggle for me to pick the book up and read on; I’ve started and finished three other books since I started Certain Jeopardy.
The book has promise, and would make a good beach book. But for everyday casual reading, there’s not enough there to keep someone reading — I doubt I would have finished it if I hadn’t agreed to write a review.
