Dee Henderson's "The Negotiator"
am 29. April 2000
I did not enjoy this book. Though the inspirational romance subplot was touching and well-written, the main storyline was confusing and overpopulated with only tangentially relevant characters. It was virtually impossible to follow Kate O'Malley's thinking as she completed her investigation, because I could not keep the multiple characters separated in my mind. It did not help at all that Henderson referred to many of the characters by name only. Without the chance to meet the "suspects", they remained simply indistinct names; the plot got lost in a sea of forgettable suspects. Also, though Ms. Henderson writes authentic sounding dialogue, the rest of the text is flat. All in all, a regrettably frustrating read.
