"A flammable techno-thriller with the kind of force that knocks out windows¿" (The New York Times Book Review)
If you're looking for a nice light read that's well-written, this is just the book for you. Just don't expect to be dazzled. It should be no surprise at all that this book is being made into a movie.
There is one serious flaw here, though. None of the characters are very likable. You go through the entire book, and don't really care much whether the main character lives or dies.
If you're new to Robert Crais, I'd strongly suggest that you wait to read this book until you've finished the Elvis Cole series. Go check out 'The Monkey's Raincoat'.
I enjoy reading the Evis and Pike books this is a stand alone - Carol the main character has a cameo in one of the Evis books. It was good to hear her story, She almost died in a bomb -- the story is fast paced and keeps you guessing more than 3 stars but not quite 4
Well developed characters. Moves quickly. Couldn't figure out ending. What a mystery should be.
