Oh, lord The plot was predictable, the whole thing was so cliche it made me want to throw it out the window The writing was terrible The characters nothing than stereotypes You have an evil super powerful judge and his sociopathic gangster son, the beloved gay best friend of the family, the loyal family dog guess what happens there , the burned out alcoholic cop friend, the very moral but sexy beautiful wife who is a saint of a mother, Uncle Jeter the big hearted thug who will pound your enemies for you, and the strong protective husband who is crazy in love with his wife Ugh Even baby Angelina, who spends all of her time either sleeping so the adults can talk or gurgling happily , smiling and laughing, charming everyone strangers included and displaying delightful behavior that is not normal for a baby under a year old and waaaaay too cute I don t even want to finish this review I am still too annoyed. THREE WEEKS TO SAY GOODBYE Thriller Jack and Melissa McGuane CO Cont PoorBox, C.J StandaloneSt Martin s Minotaur, 2009, US Hardcover ISBN 9780312365721First Sentence It was Saturday morning, November 3, and the first thing I noticed when I entered my office was that my telephone message light was blinking.Jack and Melissa McGuane finally have the child they longed for having adopted Angelina nine months ago Their dream has become a nightmare as they are told the baby s father never signed away his parental rights It s not, they find, the boy who wants the child, but his father Judge John Moreland is wealthy, powerful and very connected in Denver and beyond What he wants, he generally gets, and he has the law on his side It is clear there is no way Jack and Melissa and fight Moreland within the system With the help of two of his childhood friends, they find the son runs with gang members, the Judge is not as upstanding as he appears and the combination is very dangerous.It is so frustrating when you are a fan of an author s writing, and then they disappoint Box is a very good writer His style was there the ability to draw the reader in from the beginning, increasing the tension with every step and bringing it to a dramatic climax The sense of place was strong and the dialogue worked What let me down was the plot and the characters Hackneyed and ludicrous are words that come to mind for the plot The story was so contrived and I knew where it was going every step along the way There were no surprises The characters were black or while there were no shades of gray at all They only thing that remotely saved it for me was the last chapter If you are looking for an airplane book to distract you for a few hours, this will do If you are expecting something up to Box s usual standard, I expect you will be very disappointed. Fast paced and exciting but somewhat unlikely characters and the final scene highly unlikely also the English was lacking in places Also it really annoys me when people write about babies or toddlers without ever having met one or done any research as here we have a walking talking nine month old However I finished it in a day so that s something.
