Normally I love Baldacci but this book was a bit disappointing. The violence in the torture scenes were painful to read. I almost couldn't make it through. And the relationships between characters never really got off the ground. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great. Just okay....
This is book is not for those looking for a plot and action. The dialogue is plodding and dark with little forward motion. I did find, however, that it sticks with you and makes you think. The interact between father and son is sweet and endearing; the setting dark and terrifying with little redemption.
Didn't love it, didn't hate it. I read the whole thing which says something for it.
