So like its clones this book has a tall handsome and tough hero, a nasty ugly villain and a gorgeous romantic interest. For the technology geeks there will be brand model and specification for every weapon and gadget. Most importantly, there will be no surprises, no irony and no doubting the outcome. Some of the action bits are quite well written and there is some convincing local colour, but come on, can you really imagine that gangs of ruthless killers keep their captives long enough that they can plan their escape and then make fundamental errors to give them that opportunity. Overall an unconvincing story, but ok if you just want a bit of escapism.
Perhaps the second book will be better - may well buy it to see how the key player survives another day.
Imagine watching a play where all of the main characters left the stage and a few others arrived to handle the finale.
That's the only negative. The book was very enjoyable otherwise.
