I purchased this book after reading Stphen King's review in Entertainment Weekly. It does not disappoint; the writing is clean and crisp, characters well nuanced and the plot moves along at a fast clip without any major holes. The book is a well crafted thriller.
Quick read, good writing and interesting characters, this particular story's subject matter was just was a bit off for me... religious zealots, government conspiracy, no one believing the main characters.... not my thing, but still well written and a fast read.
