Has nothing really new to offer to the thriller genre: the standard guilt-ridden hero, the vile psychopath out for revenge, and an explosive finale. Having said that, it is a book which would keep you engaged at the airport. Could have been better, had the author not tried too hard for the dramatic touch with extended descriptions of his characters' feelings over and over again.
