plot twists were telegraphed much more than 3rd book, so this was less grabbing; writing is vivid and occasionally graphic (violence). Development of the main character over the first books of the series continues, leaving me to wonder which persona will turn out to be the real one.

Very good, filled with twists and turns to keep my interest, compared to the previous installment that I felt went stale.
The dynamic between the main 3 characters has started to grate a bit - I don't have a great amount of affinity for either Steve or cadillac any longer. I'd like to see more made of clearwater as she is the only likeable one left!

another great one

I occasionally have to skim through the detail, particularly the unrelated to core story history and politics.
The plot line is excellent, story is great. A good read

A more accurate subtitle for this novel would be 'The Escape from Ne-Issan.' It begins straight after the third novel, and makes no sense if you haven't read it, or better the entire series. If you have, it's good stuff, and made me go straight onto Book Five.
