I rated this book 5 stars.
This is the second book I have read by this author. (The first being the second in this series.)
College students, Pender, Marie, Sawyer, and "Mouse" decide that their college degrees are not all they're cracked up to be. So they decide that kidnapping successful businessmen for a small ransom would be lucrative, and embark on a cross-country crime spree.
This book is absolutely riveting. It is very fast paced, and a few times I had to go back and read a paragraph or two, because I found I was skipping over words in anticipation of what would happen next! I liked all of his characters. I think the author did an excellent job of putting us in the criminals frame of mind ~ and empathizing with them. I found myself wanting the characters to get away, but at the same time wanting them to get caught!!
I enjoyed the camaraderie of State Patrol Agent Stevens and FBI Agent Windermere, and the tension relieving banter between them.
I look forward to reading more books by this author, but most definitely need to read a slower paced book in between! The author gets your adrenaline going!
