Fast paced but not the best of this series. As Lydia Chin has been kidnapped by nature of the plot her character is in the background for most of the narrative. This was ameliorated by the character of Trella and the return of Linus from previous novels. The problem with this book, I think, is that it read a bit like the novel equivalent of Die Hard. It lacked a certain depth and favoured action over plot development.
