This book is..............entertaining, interesting, compelling. Without a doubt. It's a quick read and kind of fun, although the writer seems to have a Gibraltar-sized chip on his shoulder.

But this book also demands superhuman feats of disbelief suspension. This becomes clear early on when you realize that the protagonist, who is involved in the Witness Protection Program, was taught a new trade and placed in.................the exact same city in which he lived before he entered the program. The worst/most hilarious/most brain-deadening example occurs much later. You'll know it when you read it.

Just keep this in mind if you decide to read this book.
