did not like it

This book was a slog, just aweful. Story was unimaginative, plot was overly descriptive and methodical in a bad way, characters were unmemorable, protaganist wasn't proactive enough, plus there wasn't a single female in the whole book. It was doubly bad because it took no advantage of Mongolia as a unique setting. I found nothing memorable about the sense of place. I lived there for 2 years with the Peace Corps, and I know Mongolians don't talk the way this book depicts them. Yet, I felt obligated to read it because no other modern thrillers are set here. What a waste of time. I could have had more suspense reading the latest edition of Lonely Planet.
