This book starts quickly, but I almost didn’t make it to the end, so a little advice up front: Do try, since the pace picks up and the story improves toward the end. Until then, although there were interesting, exciting moments, the story mostly seemed to plod along. Too much explanation, not enough action.




There are frequent intrusions into the story while the author provides information he thinks the reader needs. These range from blatant parenthetical asides while a character is “on stage” to paragraphs of background information about government agencies and their operating methods. Every time this happens, we suddenly “see” the author, which ends our immersion in the story. This is not a book you’ll get lost in.




Additionally, much of what happens to the characters is telegraphed well ahead. Any character who claims to be too busy to become involved will surely become involved, any head of state who fears making a bad decision will soon make one to move the plot along, and possible romances end up right where you suspected they would as predictably as a romance novel.




Dick Wolf’s writing is solid, despite the issues with style and plotting. His knowledge of the setting (New York) adds great dimension, and the plot itself is an attention grabber.
