liked it

I was really leery about reading this novel based on some of the reviews, but I was pleased I did. It's a historical narrative deftly flipping from past to present and back again. At the same time, it's part mystery, part treasure hunt and part thriller. I have to admit, parts of it were really pretty scary and I had to turn on some extra lights for good measure.

I assigned 4 stars because there were so a few false starts, avenues the author begins, but doesn't follow through on, probably to keep the reader guessing. I guess it's a credit that I really want to get to know some of the characters better. Overall, I recommend the story and will look into other Blake Crouch thrillers.
