The subplot of the story is Lindsay learning to cope with her life threatening blood disease, falling in love again and catching a killer. The combination takes its toll on Lindsay and there are times when it seems she will have to throw in the towel. The subplot balances the horrors of the book in a subtle and appropriate way. There isn't too much romance or drama, just enough to keep the reader turning pages in pursuit of the outcome.
Once again, Patterson keeps the reader turning pages with his short chapters and fast paced storytelling. I enjoyed this novel and look forward to reading the next book in this series, 2nd Chance.
