This is a good read, fast paced, good character development, interesting plot line and complications. I like John Dunning's "Booked" series, this is a good stand alone novel. Great introduction to his writing. As an aside, if you like John Connelly's newspaper writer character from his book The Poet you will likely like this character also.
