This book was one of my first reads wins!! I love winning free books. I immediately got into this book. I loved the fact that I recv'd the Brit version of this book which stayed true to the culture, locations, and colloquialisms. This I loved...along with that is the lackadaisical attitude towards cursing...I found it over the top. There was too much of the F word...which brought my stars down to 4. I even thought about giving 3.5 due to this and other shortcomings. Then I decided to judge the book on just the story emitting the gratuitous cursing...I really enjoyed the mystery in the story. I loved the mystique and the suspense of the entire story including characters, plot, setting, and victims, perpetrators, and innocent bystanders. The addition of the mob was a little shallow in development, but added a bit of intrigue to this transcontinental adventure.

I believe that most will enjoy this book...nice job Peter James and I look forward to reading more by James!
