I was surprised by this one. It took about 25 pages or so to get into it, and there were a lot of early red herrings and meandering passages about the tedious nature of detective work, but once the mystery really started unwrapping, it was good!

I actually liked Peter Diamond, although not so much his name, I admit. We share an apprehension of technology and a deep-rooted need to prove ourselves.

decent mystery and pacing, good characters, fast read

3.5 stars
