Was left wanting more, why and how...second part is a must! Hope the author gets my hint.

The author has a sense of efficiently setting scenes, with flashes of immersive description. The plot was far from what I was expecting, progressing slowly and in a disjointed manner...the threads somewhat wrapping together later than they should. All the characters the reader spends the most time with suffer with questionable decisions, and serve as victims swept along by an underlying, faint mystery. Too many times something interesting starts to happen, before it is prematurely cut off by murder, a switch in focus, or the narrative drive petering out. Ultimately the conclusion helps give a little perspective on what comes before, but the book does not quite gel. If there was more exploration of the hopes of and impact on the scientists drawn into the Brain Gain, or a little more exploration of Bello, perhaps this would have been better. Still a worthwhile read, but just barely. Be aware, this is not a science fiction novel, and there is only one element that could be considered fantastical.
