Review by: Gary Williams on Jan. 09, 2014 : star star star star star
This book users the same fascinating format as G'day LA, where chapters alternate between first and third person, giving us the overall perspective in third person and then that's backed up with the internal experience and thoughts of the hero (in first person).

When he writes his books, Mr McFadden seems to dabble in infinite variations of his already successful formula. In another of his books, one of the main characters is framed, and ends up in jail while her boyfriend, Eamonn Shute, spends some of his riches figuring out who framed her - the reader knows pretty early who this is, and has to watch them figure it out.

The variation of that formula in this book, is that G'day USA is more of a 'who done it' (the reader doesn't know the real killer) and, in this case the falsely accused makes a run for it and has to figure things out for herself (she probably developed her detective skills in the last book, G'day LA). We get updates here and there on what 'the killer' is doing... but we don't know who it is. In this regard it, sort of, reminds me of Dan Brown's 'Da Vinci Code', where we find out late in the book that two characters are actually one person (while trying not to give too much away).

I am now a definite fan of Tony McFadden, and this is another great read by him.
