Well written!

While somewhat heavy handed at times and the foreshadowing so transparent as to be jarring, the flow, and well crafted dialogues are worth the annoyance. On par with any of the big publishing house bestsellers. The plot twists are however so gentle and well telegraphed as to be minor bends in a rather straight road. Good not great, an entertaining day's diversion.

To say that this one was a little far fetched is an understatement. But that actually led to the enjoyment for me.

But what if???

I will admit that I didn't figure it out as quickly as I usually do. So score 1 for the author. The transatlantic settings were great and the characters, once it settled into who were still alive, were great.

Great book, I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this intriguing story. The characters are well rounded and the plot, if not exactly believable, is imaginative and well written. All in all I would definitely highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller/mystery.
