really liked it
bookshelves: mystery, sci-fi

Preston is great! I've never been out west to the high mesas, much less out there one foot, 20 miles from water, sucking on a stone, with an injury, but he had me feeling some of what that might be like.

Beyond the landscape, you've got a greedy, unethical scientist whose ambition way outreaches his ability; a man who takes a promise to a dying stranger very seriously; a vicious, scum-bag ex-con; a careful, thoughtful dreamer of a scientist; a rogue secret agency; and a monk with a CIA background. (This being fiction, that last is a good guy.) Oh, and of course, Robbie. Two Robbies. The young woman and, well, let's not introduce a spoiler.

The characters might be a bit standard, but with twists. For instance, the women are actually strong and intelligent. THis is a great read!
