Enjoyed this book a lot. The first few pages really grab your attention and then it is slow for about 80 pages, but the author makes up for it in the end. Last hundred pages I did not want to put it down. Overall a good read.
This is a difficult book to put down once begun. It has interesting plot twiests that I didn't anticipate, and characters that didn't totally defy believability.
