Excellent book!!! Started strong and finished the same way. The characters were believable and played the parts perfectly.

One part thriller, one part mystery and all parts action.
Enjoyed the book initially but was introduced to a different perspective, after meeting the Author and hearing his different thought processes. Great mystery read with some twists.
