As some reviewer pointed out, this is a shade like a Chandler tale only the PI is a touch more soft boiled than Marlowe. Certainly no worse for that. A good read and a well-formed piece of escapism. The light-hearted asides entertain without becoming irksome as sometimes happens when it's overdone. Alton Rhode is an easy man to pass a little time with. This is not great literature but perfect if you've got to wait at an airport or head out on a long flight.
a great read... a real page turner with a super twist at the end.I was up till 3 am reading the book.Another slick thriller from di maria.Believable characters,beautiful plotting....cant wait for the movie
