I did enjoy a glimpse of a secret government world, and feeling a part of the inner workings of Washington D.C. That being said, I expected more; I'm still wondering why I should care about the characters. Although I met some of them in an earlier Meltzer novel, they are still underdeveloped.
I was engaged in the story, certainly, but disappointed that there wasn't more depth. Consider this a good vacation read; entertaining, slightly informative regarding government history, and an escape from our non-espionage lives.
Narrator Scott Brick comes through, as always, with a stellar performance.
I enjoy Debbie Macomber's books, including the Cedar Cove series. This final book of the series lost a little oomph compared to the others. Story lines seemed contrived and more 1940-ish than 21st century. If you've kept up the the series it's worth it to finish them off with this book, however it is not up to Ms. Macomber's usual standards.
Ms. Burr's narration is excellent.
