3.0 out of 5 stars Excellently written, but frustratingly hesitant at times and with a few loose ends., 25 Jun. 2013

This review is from: The Krone Experiment (Kindle Edition)
The prose and the construction of the world of the book are truly excellent, reminiscent of a Tom Clancy techno thriller, but unfortunately it take the characters over half the book to come up with the central plot point, when the reader is a good third of the book ahead of them. This was frustrating.

When the reveal finally comes however, the pace accelerates and although the author has to understandably hand-wave a lot of the science away at the end, it almost feels as though the finish is overly hasty leaving a few subplots hanging.

After an entire chapter on it, what happened about the stolen satellite? After a seemingly endless introduction to CIA politics, what happened to McMasters? What about the three other microscopic antagonists? Only one was mentioned in passing?

A little less build up and a little more denouement and this would be a five-star review.
