    This one was a bit of a disappointment It starts out with a great idea Daniella Logan, the daughter of a rich and famous film producer, discovers evidence of a dark sect after her father s untimely death It quickly comes to light that he was part of a secret order known as the Smiths Parts of it deliver genuine suspense, but I felt that it wasn t paced very well I didn t truly feel that Daniella was in danger until rather late in the book, and I also felt parts of the novel were rather pred This one was a bit of a disappointment It starts out with a great idea Daniella Logan, the daughter of a rich and famous film producer, discovers evidence of a dark sect after her father s untimely death It quickly comes to light that he was part of a secret order known as the Smiths Parts of it deliver genuine suspense, but I felt that it wasn t paced very well I didn t truly feel that Daniella was in danger until rather late in the book, and I also felt parts of the novel were rather predictable If I thought less of Campbell, I might rate ithighly, but compared to say, Nazareth Hill, I didn t find it very frightening or intense

    This book is so poorly written, I think the editor must have been asleep at the wheel The wording is confusing and, in fact, so irritating it is difficult to finish the book I am quite surprised it ever was accepted for publishing.
