** spoiler alert ** I was really expecting more. I just kept waiting and waiting for the book to get good or better.... Did NOT happen. As for action and descriptive writing, this book is a total let down. MIKE - keep to the sports novels. War and Peace would have taken less time to read than this - I just needed to get to the end to confirm it was that bad. It was like sitting in a theater going - really???

My dad was a hero and led a secret life that we didn't know about.... Blah blah blah.....He dies - or was he murdered?? .... I'm going to be a hero.... Blah Blah Blah..... Mysterious stranger ..... There are bad people called (very creative) "the bads", but we give no evidence of anyone doing anything bad..... reference to 9-11 being blamed on "the bads".... Don't know who to trust, including a trusted family member.... "Big twist" (haha) - saw it coming.... Bads finally did something bad, maybe it was them? - Lame ending used to lead into a less than anticipated sequel that I won't be reading.

Claire I was disappointed. I could see what Mike was trying to do. I know he is capable of achieving the theme he was hoping for- rushed? Disappointing.
