This is a fastpaced easy to read book. I read it in three evenings, which is very unusual as I am a very busy person who usually doesn't have much time for reading.
Once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. I also could not figure out what was going to happen next or how it would end. It has more twist and turns than a winding road. What a great movie it would make.
