Helpful Score: 1
A couple of suprising plot twists really caught me off guard which is unusual. A little hard to identify with some of the characters but over all the book kept me interested and entertained and isn't that the point?
Really enjoyed this book, you never know what will happen until the very end and it always leaves you with a lead in into the next book which in this case is Pop Goes the Weasel. As an old, Mickey Spillane/Mike Hammer reader of the 50's & 60's, it was good to read thrilling, cliff-hanger, mysteries again. Alex Cross like Mike Hammer is a no nonsense detective doing whatever it takes to get the bad guys.
