As my first James Patterson book, I enjoyed reading the first book in this trilogy. Felt Patterson captured the essence of living in a mining town in outback Australia. Could feel the lead character's anguish over her brother. Enough twists and turns, although possibly wrapped up too suddenly for the length of the book. Didn't guess who the antagonist was, but didn't get why the person was the antagonist either.
Looking forward to books 2 and 3.
