Ordinarily I would have given this book a 4 for story as it was predictable and didn't keep me guessing, but was otherwise an enjoyable read. But I had to take it down a notch for the way the novel was resolved. While the approach was indeed novel, it so strained the suspension of disbelief as to be difficult to swallow. Without revealing the ending, I would say it was like having the tooth fairy intervene. It just was not tethered to the way the world really works.
But if you like Harvath, Mitch Rapp, and that kind of super-agent-hero, then you'll be right at home in this book. It is worth your time for the voice characterizations alone. It was a great performance by the reader.
