YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW, by Lisa Jackson
It's a great opening scene. You're convinced she's nuts. And the hero is not your usual run-of-the-mill hottie. This 552-page paperback doorstopper is complex, and often hair-raising. It's hard to find fault with the author of so many New York Times Best Sellers. Fans love the suspense, the psychological nightmares, the multi-stranded plots. So do I. But this book could have benefited from a bit of editing, cutting redundant scenes. Yes, we love our heroine to suffer. But, please, not the same thing over and over again. Maybe I'm just impatient...maybe this is what her readers want...but the book could have been just as good at 420 pages, and kept the tension just as high, and the denouement just as compelling. It's a grudging 4. Mild sex, make it a 1.5.
