Read in August, 2011

I thought to keep my librarian cred I should read this book. I also liked the fact that Russian identity and Chicago played into the plot. It did keep my attention long enough to finish it maybe because it was a quick read, but it's didn't quite deliver on it's promise. If you're looking for something that will occupy a few hours in a pleasant way then I'd say read it. If you looking for a book that you'll go back to this one probably isn't it.
