I thought it was going to be a lot better from all the hype that I read. The story takes a while to get going and you better pay attention to what happens in the beginning because it will circle back on you. The last 1/4 of the book has some real WHA...more

Pretty good sequel. Not nearly as good as the first in this series. However, the main character shows some growth and he relies on his smarts instead of suddenly turning into a ninja warrior when things get tough. I like this series so far and I love...more

Better the second time around. Didn't mean to read it a second time. Thought it was the latest Quarry book. Figured it out about 50 pages in that I had read this before. Decided to finish it out and glad I did. Mr. Collins has a terrific character in...more
