The writer builds great characters, and the plotline is intriguing, but then ruined by both the gratuitous (and sophomoric) sex scenes, and the constant opinons of the writer thinly veiled as a thematic element (can you say Gun control now has a mouthpiece?). The writers evident talent was watered down by this showing of poor restraint.

Expected mystery & adventure got bored
I picked up this book for some entertaining reading while traveling. Expecting a harrowing tale of mystery, suspense, and adventure, I struggled with it to the end never getting that payoff. It reads like a history professor decided to write pulp fiction & not good pulp fiction at that. The dialogue is flat, the action awkwardly paced, the story disjointed (who is doing what where? eh who cares anymore!). The only reason I gave it two stars is that there was obviously a lot of effort into piecing this together, but in the long run, it's not worth the effort to read. I wouldn't buy a title by this author again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
