ive read the first in this series and was enthralled with his capabilitys. the reality of the book was astounding and I a 70 year old woman was hooked on this first book. I read approximatly 20 books a month most I enjoy but some are so drawn out that it seems to take forever to finish , not so Bruce Lightener im waiting now for the next one, thouroughly enjoyable from begining to end.
