I wasn't sure if I liked this book. It started as usual and then Mark almost died. Jesse did die! Shades of Who Killed J R? Suddenly Jesse is back! Once I got back to the familiar characters and scenarios I was a happy camper. There for a while it just seemed out of balance to me.
Other people have said this was a fast read and for me it wasn't. Quite a few twists and turns and suddenly it all falls into place.
