How disappointing. I, too, like crime stories. But if the author can't keep the characters' names straight, I know I would be lost. Thanks for the thorough review!
Thank you, Sarah.

I can understand your confusion about the characters. It really is frustrating when you read books wherein authors seem like confused themselves. Nice review tho!
Exactly. Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for another insightful review! I normally like this genre and the concept of this book sounds interesting. However, the inexplicable name changes would be annoying to deal with.

Sounds like a highly decent crime novel that is significantly impaired by poor editing. That's a shame. Thanks for your honest review that highlights the good and the not-so-good!

I am also a fan of CSI and Law and Order, so this caught my interest immediately. It's unfortunate that there are so many mistakes, but I'll still consider reading it. Great review!

Such a shame that a good book is let down by its editing.

"Cold Case Closure" by Patrick I. O'Donnell and Charles O. Gaylor



Thanks for the good review! I'm also a big fan of CSI. I can relate to your frustration with the names being mixed up. I probably wouldn't read the book just because one simple mistake would have me confused throughout the
book.

I am not sure how a jump can be made from Clayton to Stuart? That's a pretty big error. Good for you to stick with it though, and maybe the author will rethink this one and come out with a more cleaned up version. I like a good crime story too as long as it isn't too graphic on murder scenes and such. Solving the crime is the best part! I always enjoy your reviews, and for a moment, I thought I couldn't find one of yours on the main page! But, there you were. I just haven't been reading as much lately. Trying to get back into it a little more now. Great job on this as always! :)
