After reading The DaVinci Code, I had high hopes of another Dan Brown book with twists and turns on every page. Unfortunately, this book did not reachg my level of expectation. At times, I forced myself to read just to complete it. While there were a few unexpected turns in the book, I didn't really experience any suspense until near the end. I give the book 2 stars based on the last 50 pages. If you really want to read one of Brown's better books, then pick up Deception Point. That one had me reading it while cooking dinner.
