review 1: This started of as a great story, but badly written. The writer seems to think the reader is stupid and needs things explaining in very simple terms. In parts the writing was very 50 Shades (yep, read it- sorry). Towards the end I stopped enjoying the story. It's full of holes doesn't all tie together and is also too long.For example, if he killed Michael to get back at Dagny, why kidnap her and feed her to make her better? There is a lot in the book that seems to be 'in fill' and the reasons behind the crime seem very tenuous. It was slow in places and then suddenly all changed at the end. Even the 'twist' was badly explained.It a shame because in better hands this could have been a great book
review 2: The Bubble Gum Thief by Jeff MillerThomas & MercerDecembe
... morer 4, 2012ASIN: BOO7RZ0716426 pagesThis is my first crime. My next will be bigger.“This is my first crime. My next will be bigger.” So begins The Bubble Gum Thief. This message is found on a card to which a stolen stick of gum is taped. What follows is a series of crimes that escalate is horror and body count. Solving the crimes falls to FBI agent Dagny Gray, who has a handful of personal issues, not the least of which is severe anorexia. Dagny must fight through her medical problem, an FBI bureaucracy that hinders her every step, and a serial killer that is increasingly cleaver and brazen. Well written and fast paced and populated with interesting characters, especially Dagny who is well drawn and likable. A good read.DP Lyle, award-winning author of the Dub Walker and Samantha Cody thriller series less

A well-written mystery, especially if you have any Cincy ties since some of the story is set there!
If you like a good crime thriller, you won't be disappointed!
Very intelligent whodunit. Kept my interest throughout.
Kept me engaged the entire time!
A good (and smart) thriller.
