    "This looks like a great thriller spy sort of novel, with a focus on very similar ideas to what many Janet Evanovich books feature. I'm sure any Evanovich fan will find something to love in this novel or anything else from this author. User reviews are also quite positive, and it seems to be a fairly popular book as well."

    "This is a good book for fans of Janet Evanoich. Kinsey is a bit more serious/realistic than Stephanie Plum, but a good start to a series featuring a strong female investigator. I think you'll like it."

    "Last year I was visiting the Keys and needed a book to read while at the beach and so picked this one up for obvious reasons. My girlfriend suggested Evanovich but I wanted something a little different. You can see where Brown may have borrowed a thing or two but she veers off into something a bit lighter and more fun. Needless to say I had a few. Books, that is."

    "This is a pretty good suggestion for Janet Evanovich fans. I love Janet's books and was pretty skeptical when I first started reading this book after one of one of my friends suggested it, but I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. It has the same sort of feel that Janet's books have. I haven't read any of his other books yet, and I still like Janet Evanovich the best, but this one won't disappoint. I suggest you give it a try if you've read all of Janet's and need a new read to satisfy your mystery craving."
