The story has some interesting beginnings but then gets convoluted in a massive knot of twisted story lines which cater more to a screenplay laden more with explosions than storyline. It is fast paced, yes, but lacks depth. The writing seems to be on a sophmoric level which does not use a single subjunctive clause in the entire book which make anyone with a decent command of English cringe. (using "was" every time the author should have used "were") If the story line were given a decent pruning, pacing and story rhythm were adjusted so there were not constant adrenalin fueled explosions (less is more in this case) and given to someone with a decent command of good grammar to proof read, it might be a good yarn. But it does not have the classic quality of the first story by a long shot.
