Very few authors today can write a series of books with continuity with each other and at the same time each one can stand on its own without feeling lost. Great plots. Engrossing and entertainig.
Starts and ends without any meaning or guide. SOrry I bought it.
The background created was very detailed. The characters interesting and diverse. Sometimes confusing as to whom they are. All together it is an engrossing book and keeps you in suspense all the way until the end. All the build up and drops the ball at the end. Rushed through that does not compare to all the rest of the material.I do recommend this book, even though Mr. Cussler has better.
When you read the first character created by Mr. Silva, Michael Osborne, I expected a series, but alas, after the second volume, Mr. Silva pulled an ace from his sleeve and has created Gabriel Allon. Great reading, sophisticated prose, meticulous research of locations and events. He created a master restorer, planner and executioner. This is a one nighter, as you can't put this book down. Mr. Silva, please keep them coming.
When I saw it in catalog I noticed that it was the first book for this writer. I always like to read first works and follow through and watch how he develops in every new book. Mr. "Knox" started with a book at a higher level than other writers are now with several books in print, where research was extensive , highly entertaining and engrossing. I think that he may have a hard time trying to follow with another as good as this one. Great characters, prose and able to not get you confused or lost with all the characters, places and cultures. Great work. Thank you
