This earlier book was somewhat disappointing for a big Cook fan like myself. The story and writing were good but the execution just missed the mark. It needed to be longer with more time spent on both the protaganist Steve's prior family and current one for the plot to be truly fleshed out. The surprise ending, while good in theory, was way too rushed and lacked the emotional impact it should have due to a failure to really develop the other characters in Steve's prior and current life. The ending felt as if Cook had a page limit from his editor that he forgot about and when he realized it said, "Oh crap, better end this story quickly!" A very good concept that needed more time to be developed to be really be a great book.
