This book was surprisingly good to me. I didn't expect it to be bad, but I thought it would provide me a few thrills here and there to help me get through my kinda dull summer break. Instead, it was something of a mystery movie, combined with a thriller movie, the good type that came out in the 90s. A very good book, with a lot of action in the last act.
I enjoy reading this author's work. "Scorpion of the Sea" was my first favorite, then "The Dark Side". This was an audio book. It took me away from my troubles and helped make that boring I-95 drive enjoyable. PT has a way with plots, character development and points of view. All the time he's weaving in current issues and current military situations.
This was an interesting enough read but it didn't resonate enough on the character development level for me. There wasn't any character I really believed in or wanted to keep knowing after the story ended. I ended the story with a shrug, happy it had fulfilled my need for a "Z" in the alphabet challenge.
