A very enjoyable read that didn't demand too much of me! Had me a little jumpy here and there with some romance thrown in- a good book to take on a vacation.

I've read many of Stuart Woods books and enjoyed them very much. Palidrome was more than that though. Some friends and I shared a library copy of the unabridged recording of this book on our shift at work. Why do I mention this? Well, it's simple. This book was amazing! We were left spellbound as a group, each of us poking and proding each other all night as things developed in this story. The story is emotional as we were along on this journey with these characters. So many twists and turns left us gasping with those surprised, "OH's" that had our coworkers staring at us. The editorial comments above tell the basics of the story, so I wanted to share the experience of actually reading or listening to it being told. This story had us wrapped up in what was going on for the two nights we listened to it we probably worked more focused than we'd done before simply because our concentration was so involved with this story.
Personally this book had me crying my eyes out at work! I sat at my desk bawling my head off and happily doing so because I enjoyed this book so much. Unlike some of the other reviewers I wasn't expecting the twists and turns of the story, so it was great to have friends just as surprised as I was going through it with me.
Even a couple of years later we still remind each other every so often about this book and tell others about it. This story sticks in your head and makes you care about what is happening to the characters. I may have liked Stuart Woods before this book, but after this I love the way his mind works!

It had a few slow spots, but all-in-all it was very entertaining. There are several things going on at one time, such as the "crazy ex" and a mystery surrounding the twins that caught me off guard. I will definitely try other books by this author.

There is so much that kept me up late at night reading this book. Liz is a heroine anyone could relate to. We root for her in her starting a new life on this remote romantic island, an unforgettable love story soon takes place. If you enjoyed this book, read Mary Higgins Clark's "A Cry In The Night", another excellent book with the psycho husband theme!

As a reader accustomed to the tightly woven and truly imaginative mysteries of Ruth Rendell/Barbara Vine, I found this novel workmanlike at best. Woods is an adept writer of bestsellers but a careless craftsman. My first objection: structurally, the novel makes little (much less provocative) sense. It contains two separate and distinct plotlines that never meld. The Cumberland-Island-family plotline, moreover, is larded with rather shameless Gothic twists that never pay off. The most egregious of these is the "twins" subplot after which the novel is titled and which proves utterly pointless; the story would not have been substantively different without it. My second objection: transparency and predictability. Any discerning reader should be able to figure out the "mystery" of the twins about halfway through the book, and the climactic events of the final chapters can be foreseen even earlier. I finished the book with a groan, returned it, and went on to the infinitely more absorbing "The Killing Doll" by Ms. Rendell. If only American publishers, and readers, held their authors to this high a standard!

I have all of Stuart Woods' books. Palindrome is my favorite. The mystery and intrigue keep you guessing until the very end.

Liz, a photographer, leaves what apparently was an abusive marriage and disappears to start a new life. Luckily she has a good divorce attorney who gets more from her husband in the divorce settlement than she�d expected. With her new found freedom, she heads off to an island where she meets some interesting people who help her settle comfortably into her new life. She happens to meet a man that she�s very attracted to. Lucky for her, the feeling is mutual even if he appears to be a little odd. Life seems sweet until the one-by-one, the people she left behind in her old life start turning up dead. After the first death, she suspects her husband, but she�s got to convince the police that he�s doing the murders. Not only that, she begins to fear for her life. While struggling with these new-found fears, she realizes that her new man friend is a little �different.� She can�t figure him out, but she knows that she�s definitely attracted to him and she wants to hang in there with him. At the same time, the detective she�d talked to about her husband is beginning to believe that just maybe, she�s right. He begins an investigation into her ex-husband that could cost him his life.
This was a pretty good book. The story starts off with enough drama to grab your attention, and for the most part, continues on in that same vein. There�s always something going on � whether it�s the threat of a murder, the discovery of a mystery that needs to be solved, or just the unfolding events of new relationships � either way, the book has something to hold your interest. The detective work is pretty good and interesting as well.
