Has reader asking lots of questions, sometimes they are anwered, sometimes not.
Sometimes I got lost in characters and how they related to each other and their relationships, who's who, but it mostly worked and wasn't boring.

a summer read....
This was a great page-turner but it lacked literary depth. I can understand why Sandra Brown is regularly on the New York Times best seller list. This book was written like a great afternoon, made for TV, story. It gives you something better then reruns or video games. Griff, The Speakmans, and Rodarte don?t present much in terms of justification of their motivations. It?s a great afternoon/weekend summer read if you want to relax on the beach and not intellectualize through moral questions or the human condition. Play Dirty was a quick easy read that I enjoyed over a relaxing weekend. With all this in mind, I have to say I got what I paid for and give this book 3 of 5 stars. For the price of a movie ticket I got much more then Hollywood has to offer us. I found the story was paced just right to keep me up all night. The plot contained the triple threat formula; sex, murder, and money and it promises to keep your attention. The situations, and over all plot, were slightly unbelievable but that can be overlooked if you just want a fun ride. Given that I was tired of reading bland textbooks this book provided the perfect balm. Grab a bag of popcorn and enjoy!
