2.0 out of 5 stars FRUSTRATING!, 20 Sep 2014
AAARGH!! Have to agree with a previous reviewer here, this book is such a missed opportunity. I enjoyed the previous one so thought I'd give this one a go - a disappointment as this is nowhere near as entertaining. A daft story that kind of finishes with a "I'm fed up writing this now" feel as it literally just stops almost mid-chapter.
Combine this with HUNDREDS of typos, which are continually distracting (I've never seen so many in one e-book) and a character whose name changes from Nat to Pat and back again depending on what page you're on and you're left feeling somewhat frustrated.

First up, I am a huge fan of Nelson DeMille (Plum Island is still one of my favourite books) but this, oh dear this... It's stated in his intro that he wrote this when he was at college and was persuaded to "rewrite" it and release it for publication. The rewrite as far as I can see has been minimal, it reads like it was written by an overexcited kid, repetitive use of phrases, names of characters repeated again and again in sentences, disjointed, non-sensical, unbelievable plot lines/jumps - this is NOT the Nelson DeMille I know and love. So excrutiating that I gave up two thirds in (and I HATE givng up on books). In his postscript he says that his new wife read it and said it was… Read more
