This book was way overhyped. Its not a bad book, just not great. To go into a lot of detail about why I didn't find it above average would largely spoil the plot so I'm not going to go there. Suffice it to say after a pretty good first third the book bogs down in the middle third. The end is telegraphed pretty early just missing the details. This book was hyped by some as having aspects of "a page turning thriller." There is absolutely no hint of a thriller here.
