Very much in the thriller style of author's like Robert Crais.
With someone like James Scott Bell, I would expect (since he is a prominent writing teacher)
a great deal from this novel and for the most part I was not disappointed.
The characters, the setting and the plot all flow seamlessly. I enjoyed the link between events
in Afghanistan and California and the coincidence that puts Chuck back in the hot seat.
The twist came out of NOWHERE which was great. I loved the interplay between the two brothers
and the special skill with numbers that enabled Chuck to get the result he wanted. I don't know how
accurate it was, because I don't know any PTSD sufferers and haven't read much about it but I liked
how it was part of Chuck's makeup. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I didn't get
into it until after the fire. I'm used to books with more 'out there' emotions so I had to get back in the
rhythm of a thriller written by a man.
Glad I recommended this for my Book Club. It's nice to read an exciting full-length novel by a
talented author where you can rest easy knowing there won't be any bad language or sex.
