  • Good book

    By kchidress
    Definitely worth reading. I felt like it was similar to John Grisham's books. Twists and turns with some excitement t. I enjoyed it.
  • Boring

    Don't waste your $1.99. If you want to learn about the landmarks and streets navigation of Texas then you'll love this book. Slow plot, no meat!!!!
