** spoiler alert ** First few hours were practically unbearable. Didn't know what was going on. Author like to jump around with all the characters and it's confusing at first. Then it gets interesting, and had plenty of action. Unfortunately the events are not even close to being realistic. The bad guys and good guys do impossible things. For example bad guy waits until good guy is in the house to kill the victim and then gets away. The bad guy also planned the diamond heist 20 years in advance and it turns out he did it while there was a party in the museum at the same time the security team was upgrading the security system. How do you plan that 20 years in advance????

Anyway - entertaining (I looked forward to hearing more when I got in the car), but too unrealistic.
