Superstition - Karen Robards I really liked Joe Franconi but the heroine, Nicky Sullivan got on my nerves with her TSTL moments. Yes I get she's a reporter but even so, purposely putting yourself and your family in danger and advertising every single piece of evidence on air was just plain stupid. How do you expect to catch the bad guy if you give him every single clue you have. And putting the emails on air word for word was beyond stupid. This book seemed like it followed a formula including "put TSTL moment here" followed by "allow hero to save heroine here". The only suspense was the killer's identity and that was a surprise until a revealing moment at the end. I thought the whole mafia connection to be unnecessary and the "ending" to pat.

All in all not bad but not great either.
