4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and entertaining., 14 May 2011
This review is from: The Hammer (Paperback)
Gignomati is a likeable character, he has more depth than most of Parker's 'heroes', the other characters are believable enough with plenty of flaws to go around.
The motivation of the characters is also very well fleshed out and understandable.

This is a revenge story with a twisted family background so Gignomati's character does parallel the protagonists from the Engineer and the Fencer trilogies but this is a more human sized story, no wars and empires just a small group of people, so Gig comes across as more believable and human.

The pace is good and there are a few plot twists.
We know from the beginning that there is a deeper game being played so there are no real surprises but we get to see the characters' confusion as things progress.

This does feel much gentler than the previous books and slightly less cynical.

The ending is very well done with all the plot threads being neatly tied up.
