A book too far. Unpickupable. 100 pages too long.
This time Marlene is not involved until the denouement and the tale suffers from her absence.
The plot is barely believable and the criminals are criminally and laughably over the top. Dime novel escapes and rugged manly virtues ascribed to the heroes; a certain flightiness and bravura to Lucy without the normal leavening of introspection and self awareness.
Tannenbaum has done a 'Burton' with this millstone and has given his sententious preachiness full throttle. I felt like I needed a brain rinse. I have experienced the same thing from a variety of authors ...Alistair Maclean via James Patterson to Clive Cussler. John Sandford seems to have avoided it so far.
Thank you for a good two decade ride Mr Tannenbaum. Now go and reinvent yourself because you know deep down that this book is a blot on your writing landscape.
