I liked this book much more than I expected to. It was an exciting read, of course, but I particularly enjoyed how the two main characters were able to rely so much on sang froid and courage to survive. Carrier was an extraordinary person, but almost all of his actions were successful not because of unelieveable powers but because of being able to quickly make the right decision. with the emphasis placed on decision making and outsmarting the enemy, I thought the story felt much like a chess match, at least a high speed chess match, which is great storytelling. The villain was also interesting, but some of his craziness detracted from the story. His fixation on mirrors was a little much and would have been more interesting if mirrors had been brought more into the action, such as a scene where someone is not able to tell which image was real and which was the reflection. That is a minor point. All in all a fun, interesting ride, written by a master.
