    I hate to say it but im struggling a little with this last book,im on page 180 and i just haven't been able to get into it like i have the other two in the trilogy. Can someone tell me if it picks up the closer to the end you get? Thanks

    Yes it does. You might be struggling with it because
    it has heavy suicidal overtones, you aren't able to see past the genre deviation yet. Trust me, it is a mind trip- I literally tripped over a retro gaming device that I had forgotten my kid had (breaking it) on page 166 or so. The end ramps up too.

    I felt the same way about Finders Keepers. I thought it was a bit of a slog.....didn't really grab me at all and it doesn't seem to fit in with the other two books of the series. I buzzed through End of Watch with no problem.

    To me, Finders Keepers was like a rest between two beats. If ya ken.

    I'm about half way through. I keep waiting to get interested.

    I loved the first two.

    I want to be done with him.

    I have about 50 pages left (maybe 100, but I sure hope it's only 50) and this book still has not grabbed me.

    I loved these characters. Well, except Brady...I hated him. But that's just as good...I had feelings. Not any more. Could not really care less who lives or dies. <sigh>

    I liked it! It spoke to me in the same way that all his other books did.

    I have to say Mr. Mercedes and END OF WATCH are my favorites, i couldnt get enough of the destructive and violent mind that is Brady Hartsfield.
