The plot was mediocre -- Luke Reilly and Rosita Gonzazles are kidnapped for ransom. They are held in a leaky boat until the inept culprits get paid. The stupidity of these criminals comes through in their conversation and actions. The characters were one-dimensional and gratuitous, and it seemed their only purpose was to give names for identification while reading.
I was surprised by the immature style of writing. Even though we run into people with our name, it is not a good story approach because it can be confusing - two sets of Reilly's make for difficult character identification. Long time writers rarely make the mistake of switching the point of view (POV) multiple times within short segments or changing the verb tense from past to present while doing so. Perhaps I see this clearly because I'm an editor, but I think the sudden switches would be unwelcome by most readers. The book needed to be proofread, and may have been, but there were so many grammatical errors that I doubt if the authors even read it. Some of these items are question marks or periods immediately followed by a comma, or double period marks, and some misspellings. Every book has some proofread errors, and I, like most people, simply ignore them. There were too many to be ignored.
In my opinion, this book was published because of the author's names. Period. I do not recommend it.
The kidnappers are revealed at the very beginning, so there is absolutely no mystery, and the book fails equally in the areas of romance, comedy and suspense. Each step of the case is telegraphed in advance and fails to surprise or satisfy.
I suppose a die-hard fan might add this to their collections, but if you are looking for a good mystery, good thriller, good crime novel, or good suspenseful romance, just walk away.
