                I just finished it tonight. Great story, definitely his best yet, as far as I'm concerned.

                I won't post any spoilers, but one of my favorite lines in the book was "An old flame".

                The only error that jumped out at me was the incorrect use of a Dodge Challenger as a police cruiser (page 394 or so). It should have been a Dodge Charger, of course.

                  It is a great story. Noticed today the book is over 60 pages longer than the ARC. Not sure if it is just in the formatting or if there is more in the final version.

                    I've ordered a signed/#d UK HC 1st copy from Goldsboro, and I won a signed US 1st HC in a contest (getting that one inscribed, actually) and I'll likely order a PS Pub S/L...but I don't have any of these copies yet and likely won't for a while...getting envious of all those who've had a chance to actually read the thing. :-(

                      I don't know if there are any differences, but I had the ARC and purposely didn't read it, just in case.

                        Almost certainly just formatting. By the time the ARC's are made the story is done and the only changes made at that point are typically formatting / spelling corrections. Most of the time even those aren't made given how close the arc's are typically printed / sent out to the publication date.

                          That is my assumption. Also noticed the novel contains credits with a little Easter egg and an afterword that are not included in the ARC.

                            There are Challenger police cruisers. Not many, but some, at least in the Charlotte, NC, area (and others, if Google is any indication).

                              Hmm, well, in the book they had a mesh grill separating the front and back seats. They also had someone open the back door, and there are no back doors on the Challenger.

                              I had to look that up I do see Challenger cruisers. I wonder if they just use them as pursuit/traffic vehicles? Interesting. All the new cruisers around here are Chargers.

                                Well, after reading all these Challenger posts; this book is clearly one of fiction! Demand your money back peoples!
