Okay, its not a superbly written book. But hey, not everything written can be great, I mean look at music a lot of stuff is poor, but people listen anyway because it's entertaining! And I loved this, I thought that it really divulged Sam Fisher's persona, some people would argue about the Krav Maga teacher part, but for me that added a real emotional depth, I was heartbroken when she got shot and Sam HAD to walk away! And as usual I actually like the 1st person, switch to 3rd person idea. I'm very disappointed that they've changed author (David Michaels is a pseudonym) but hey I'll read the others anyway! :D overall, enjoyable book!
