    Story
    (698)

    At 12, Gideon Crew witnessed his father, a world-class mathematician, accused of treason and gunned down. At 24, summoned to his dying mother's bedside, Gideon learned the truth: His father was framed and deliberately slaughtered. With her last breath, she begged her son to avenge him. Now, with a new purpose in his life, Gideon crafts a one-time mission of vengeance, aimed at the perpetrator of his father's destruction. His plan is meticulous, spectacular, and successful.But from the shadows, someone is watching. A very powerful someone, who is impressed by Gideon's special skills.

    James says: "How much disbelief are we expected to suspend?"
    "Duped"
    Overall

    I have read every Preston and Child book available and have never been disappointed. I was eagerly awaiting this book because of all the hype by the authors ahead of time. It is simply not good. Gideon has no appeal as a character and the plot of the story was bland to put it mildly. Save your points

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Kathleen says: "A truly memorable read"
    "I was in the room with them"
    Overall

    What a compelling story. Each character was just right. Jack was spot on for a five year old boy. This book will be playing out in my head for a long time to come.
