it was ok
bookshelves: crime-and-thrillers
Read from May 26 to 27, 2012

Abe March said "good, but not great." I agree. It took a long time for the separate threads to make any sense at all, and when they did, there was never a real engaging drama. The characters were not developed enough to make me care about them.

The plot, however, was good enough to pull me along and the description of the chess match was superb.
