Maybe it was just me, but I felt as though half of the story was missing in this novel. When I finished, i didn't feel satisfied, or even had closure. I think we were missing a lot of character backstory, and crime scene information from the French murders, and specific information on project TAKE. I understand that we were supposed to be in the dark for most of the story like Arden, but when you don't give the reader enough information to work with, how are you supposed to evoke feelings when events begin happening in the story? I didn't really have enough invested to really care what happened to the characters, which left me feeling neither one way or the other at the end. On the plus side, it did read rather quickly and I didn't dislike any of the characters (what i knew of them, anyway). Had the setting been described better, and more time put into the characters, this might have been a really wonderful mystery/thriller. as it stands, it's simply ok.
