I found the whole story pretty unbelievable and especially the ending.

I skimmed this book, Every Fifteen Minutes by Lisa Scottoline, very quickly because I realized in the first 100 pages or so that I'd read it before three years ago. Not sure whether my forgetting says more about the book or my memory. I'm always glad to read a depiction of a psychologist or psychiatrist that doesn't make me wince because it will drive readers away from seeking help. It was quite suspenseful even on 2nd 'reading' (at least for me!), and it's good to have an action/suspense book written by a woman. I do like the Rosato & Associates and Rosato & DiNunzio series better.

The book starts with narration from a sociopath. You're left with the question throughout, who is the sociopath?

Don't start this book if you have something you need to be doing. You won't want to put it down. The book is 432 pages, but I enjoyed getting to know the characters and drawing out the suspense.

Enjoyed this book. The plot was well-managed and the conclusion was a surprise.

I was promised an action-packed thriller. I only made to about 135 pages and all I got was a sad story about single dad. Disappointing, since I am a fan of this author.

This was definitely an absorbing read. Despite it's length, I raced right through it. There were some elements of disbelief though, primary of which was elements of the main character, Eric. I wanted to strangle him for making some of the decision he continued to make - realistically, if a person was faced with this situation, I don't think he would act like he did. I will say that I was shocked by the "reveal(s)", but didn't completely understand them either - I thought that the reasoning behind who is revealed as the sociopath should have been explained in much more detail instead of just brushed over -- frankly I didn't really believe that it was who it was based on the characters actions throughout the whole book. Regardless, this was a good read and I would be tempted to pick up another novel by Scottoline in the future.

I liked the book until the end. It just kept me hanging. I wanted a definite end of the story.

Highly enjoyable read, with several good plot twists, however I have to agree with other commenters that it was overly long.
