Although this book dragged in places, I thought the premise was good and the characters were compelling.

Interesting premise about discovering a plant that is basically the fountain of youth. But the author, running into some deadends in his story, comes up with some unbelievable plot contrivances to get his main character out of trouble. The book had promise and includes some great suspense, but ultimately fails to live up to the intensity at the beginning of the book.
