Playing with Fire - Customer Choice by Heidi Brebels This book was so much more for me than I thought that it would be. I love Gerritsen's writing style and I expected another well-written crime story. The story, however, goes a lot deeper than that. It had a grip on me from early on, which only intensified towards the end. It's heartbreakingly good and it left me without words. I do have to admit that one of the main storyline's conclusions was a bit abrupt for me. Suddenly it was there and a heartbeat later it was gone again. In my opinion, in a book this good, nothing should feel rushed. But it doesn't change my overall opinion of the book: it's heartbreakingly good and it left me without words.
