it was ok

** spoiler alert ** This book is about mostly regular people who have been wronged and decide to form a sisterhood in order to exact revenge on those who wronged them.

The dead daughter speaking to various family members was cheezy and unnecessary. There was not enough character development. I didn't end up caring about any of them. There weren't enough details on how Charles was able to accomplish extraordinary tasks. The characters would often say, "I'm not even going to ask." You might be able to get away with that in a movie about spies, but not a book about supposedly regular people (plus a millionaire and a former MI-6 agent). It was a little too convenient and everything went down without a hitch.

Even the ending was wrapped up in a nice, neat, little bow. If the world learns that all you have to do to not get caught for a crime is to ship someone off to farm in Africa and have them hypnotized, then criminals would be doing this all the time. The premise was kind of interesting, but the follow-through left much to be desired.
