Pretty impressed with the weaving in of evolutionary science. Don't think I've ever seen it done like that before in a mystery novel.

I enjoyed this book. It had an unusual format - you get the thinking of the detective, the assassin, and the prey. You also get quite a lecture about the history of the earth through millions of years. For me, I easily speed through those parts, but some may find that interesting. Recommended.
