cornwell has gotten away from telling a good story about a crime and spends too much of this book with her characters in angry, destructive internal dialog that really goes no where. her prior books followed an interesting crime with a different twist on solution. in this book it's hard to find the crime and focus on the bad guys - was there really a crime at all? my last cornwell book.
This book needed a plot. All it is a recounting of prior books. None of the story lines come together and the author's Afterword is pathetic. If he was having trouble with writing it, better not to have done it at all. We were Charlie Castillo fans and I think Charlie would have taken action against the writer.
Reviews first and if the reviews pan out, then perhaps
The whole thing
love scott brick's narrative - he's been the narrator on many of my favorites. he captured the characters well. this is my first nelson demille and probably my last.
clive cussler's new book
brick is just right
history and political geography, but way too much of that!
only made it through about 6 hours of this and nothing happened. if i wanted history, geography, commentary on dysfunctional government agencies (all true) and sarcasm (of which i have plenty of my own) i would not have chosen this method of delivery.
