    14. I had a hard time caring about any of the characters in City on Edge I loved the blurb A FBI team made up of criminals sounded really good What kept me form caring was the fact that they never seemed to be a team and they sure did not care for each other The plot was well developed and the writing was good It should have been a page turner but it was not It started off very slow as each character was introduced and a profile was part of each introduction Then the story line developed This is boo [...]

    22. I still think Eve is completely undeveloped, and I m not sure I really like her based on the little bit that Pintoff reveals But the others love them Fully fleshed out, well developed, and real The plot line in this one is linear than in the last, maybe a bit predictable, but still good A couple spots could have used atmosphere to build up the suspense, but again, I liked it and will look for the next in the series.

    23. 3 3 4 Stars Tight, fast paced action great characters and good writing This story wasn t as compelling as the first one with Eve and her band of misfits Certain characters were one dimensional I figured out the who done it before the climax and there were typos and grammar mistakes Overall, I m intrigued to see what her next novel in this series will be like This one didn t feel as satisfying.

    24. I am subtracting a star because that view spoiler character death seemed so unnecessary and just plain cruel hide spoiler In addition, I m still not quite sure view spoiler I understand that ending hide spoiler

    25. This is my first book by Stefanie Pintoff, a well paced plot and great characters The day before the Thanksgiving Parade, police commissioner is shot, his daughter kidnapped Special Agent, Eve Rossi and her gang of former convicts is called in Fast paced thriller.
