" Very predictable, fairly typical Nora Roberts. I enjoy her books when I have a couple hours to kill and don't feel particularly like thinking. The thing I like best about Roberts is the detail about the careers of the main characters. I knew nothing about dog training prior to reading The Search, but now I feel like I have a rudimentary understanding of the process. This book is different from most of Roberts's prior novels because you know who the killer is almost from the beginning, and so does the protagonist. Usually in her books, it's the ubiquitous but unassuming supporting character, and the main character finds out immediately before the killer shows up for the climax, so this story didn't annoy me by following that pattern.
