I considered this book so-so. It held my interest till the end, but that doesn't mean the story was very clear or believable. I couldn't connect with the characters very well, and the sound of the story sounded cliched. It was like I read this before but I cannot quite place my finger as to where or when. The deaths were cold, calculated, and nothing to the main character, which is kind of understandable given that he is a trained assassin.

I guess what I dislike is the trend the novels of mystery and action are falling into: cool assassins or mercenaries working for certain organizations in which there is always a traitor in the plot and something the jeopardizes the operation. It also is about someone who wants someone else dead because they poise a threat. It just doesn't get tiring reading about all these themes over and over again? Just that the situations and the characters are different. Other than that, I don't make any great distinction.
