Another great book by this author. This book is an entertaining story that reads quickly and is hard to put down. There are numerous themes and sub-plots interwoven into the main story, however it is not hard to follow, while at the same time not being overly predictable. Strong characters, interesting dialogue, and some very intriguing foreshadowing (this book was written in '95).
For me, I enjoy reading about characters that I can relate to, and I believe that I can with this novel.
