A mystery for intellectuals! Johnny Denovo, the main character in this novel, is a neuroscientist turned super-detective. He uses brain science to track down the bad guys. Denovo carefully cultivates his image and has rock star status in the world.
I enjoyed the plot and the dialogue was great. Kent uses a lot of pretty words but I found his style was a lot more "telling" than "showing" and consequently I couldn't get lost in the story as easily as I would have liked.
