We loved the first Simon Bloom book, and looked forward to the sequel. Unfortunately it lacks the tension, character development, and plot twists that made the first one such a thrill. My wife remarked that it seemed to her that it was written with screen adaptation in mind, and I agree -- it's not taking advantage of the benefits of the print medium, and seems more superficial than the first book. I hope Michael Reisman gets back on track with a third book.
