A typical James Patterson thriller, fast-paced, action-filled adventure filled with handsome heroes and gorgeous women. Don't get me wrong, that's not a complaint, in fact I read the book in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed every paragraph, but don't expect a literary masterpiece because you're not going to get one.
If you want to take your brain off the hook for a few hours and visit a world full of beautiful, rich people and nasty villians then this is the book for you.
The story is not overly complicated, but JP's style of writing (short chapters, some no more than 1 page) makes it easy reading and the plot is good enough for the ending not to be too obvious.
I suppose if I had one minor criticism it would be that though the book is set in London, the English characters still speak like Americans i.e. elevator and not lift, but at least JP has done his homework unlike one American author who, much to my annoyance, referred to a £100 note!
Apart from that negligible complaint, JP, as always, is a safe bet and I eagerly wait for his next book to be published.
