This is my first book by this author. I admit that the the first chapter was a bit difficult to get into. There was a lot of action, but my initial thought was, "what is this foolishness?" However, by the second chapter, I was totally engrossed in the book. The plot is so original; I have never read anything like it. There are so many twists and suprises. I love all of the main characters. The father was especially entertaining; he is the most concieted and humorus character I have ever come across. All that to say that I will be reading more books by this author. This book is definately a keeper.
