I wouldn't rate this as Ted's best work, but its definitely intriguing. There were a few times that I found the circumstances in the book a bit... out of place in the overall flow of the storyline (In terms of the manner the villain acted)... but I still found the book interesting. You are thrown into the plot at the beginning and the rest of the book builds at a fast/slow pace. Quickly shifting from one to the other may cause fatigue for some listeners/readers, but overall worked out in the author's favor.

It's no Circle Trilogy or Showdown, but I'd recommend it to any core Dekker fans.
