“This thriller, and second installment of Preston and Child’s “other” series, definitely interested me, but despite a lot of action in the opening sequences, built very slowly after that. The plot unwound in surprisingly predictable ways, too, which only further exacerbated the slow pacing issue. This did not ruin the novel though - I still found it to be an entertaining and fun read.
Probably a large part of my overall dissatisfaction lies directly because of the cliffhanger ending on the last Pendergast series novel - I only want them to work on that series!!! Though, really, Gideon is a likable character and this was a book that, I’m sure, under different circumstances, I would have enjoyed a lot more.”
