Roger didn't like this candidate at all. But what he is interested in is his collection of art that he wanted to steal. The characters are not likeable. The readers have to find out who is really the worst guy as both of the protagonists are liars. Interesting and stinky kind of story. Not prett...

Wow, Wow, Wow...this book is good. I agree with some of the reviewers who don't think it is as good as the Henry Hole series. I like the main character in those series more than I liked the characters in this one, but I did think that this book moved quicker than the "Hole" series.
