After being very impressed with "Echelon Vendetta", I couldn't wait to read this one. However, this book is not nearly as good. They both have nice long twisting story lines, but this book feels like the author didn't spend near enough time on developing and refining the moving parts. Characters and dialogue are thin. The book has at least 4 characters portrayed as sexual deviants... a little too much focus in that area.
The characters are very well developed and the dialogue flows naturally, making it easy for the reader to get wrapped into the story. In particular, the Italian Major Bronchotti's interaction with the flawed Micah Dalton is excellent. Micah's boss also has a small arsenal of colorful sayings that even take the main character a while to decode. Narration is very good.
The author overused ghosts/hallucinations, and I thought that it cheapened the book a bit. The rest of the book was so well developed, that it was a distraction.
