it was ok

This book was everything I expected it to be: fast-moving, gripping plot, etc. But that was about it, which is exactly why I picked this book up in the first place. I don't read Patterson to be wowed by literary structure or character depth; I read Patterson because I want fluff that I can read in 3 days or less.

I do wish he'd leave out some of the details. They aren't well written, and I found myself skipping entire pages - sometimes chapters - because I didn't feel like they were essential to the plot.

This particular episode was not as good as other Patterson i've read. The timeline of the plot extended over a year, which I didn't care for, especially because I didn't really catch on to how slooooooow things were going till the very end and it's somewhat predictable twist. Maybe I just didn't catch on because I was skipping pages and chapters? Hmmm.
