Character development rings true but becomes frustrating. The development requires attention but there is no resolution.
The characters are one-sided; the plot's motivation just doesn't work; but it is all very exciting nonsense.
There is little original here. Brown has developed a pattern, and all that is new in this book is setting and an even more ridiculous motivation. While Brown feels free to share secret rituals of Masons, he wants us to believe that revealing these same secrets to the USA population would cause the demise of our nation. There's something a little ironic here. It just doesn't work.
A refreshing look at Mississippi in the 60's. Well crafted, shows values of a generation of change and hope.
Plot - a little too contrived. It seems that he went for a twist at the end rather than consistent plot. Too many unmotivated events. Main character is too inconsistent. A lot of unnecessary profanity.
