Dec. 20, 2013. I'm not done with this book. I have been really enjoying the pacing, the characters and the storyline, but was having my usual problems with word usage and sentence structure. I wondered if perhaps the author wasn't from the U.S. (although most of the main characters were). A quick web search turned up that, indeed, he was not from the U.S., but from Australia, and that might account for some of the idiosyncrasies I was seeing -- most notably his use of the word "learnt" rather th...more
Overall, a good read. The character development was interesting as were the historical places throughout the story line. It got a bit tedious at the end with the chase thru tunnels etc but it was still able to hold my attention.

With degrees in law and criminology, Australian author JF Lourens practiced law before turning business consultant. He is an avid reader of the thriller / suspense genres; he jogs to keep fit; travels the world to see where life takes him; does karate to keep him sane and focused and writes novels because he absolutely enjoys jumping into the keyboard to follow his characters into the unknown.
