I just finished Iris Johansen's Fatal Tide. Blech. And what sucks is she had good characters that she didn't bother to develop. A wonderful plot line and even a believable villian. But then she gave no description, no real setting, nothing but dialogue for about 90 percent of the book and not even good dialogue at that. Her heroine's reactions are false as hell and the big suspenseful revelation was so, pfft, that you didn't get near the reaction I'm sure she was going for. I'd go into more but I don't want to ruin it for anybody who actually wants to read this tripe.
Horridly disappointed. I don't think I'll ever subject myself to this author again.
