Overated Thriller Falters
on 6 December 2001
After an unclear prologue the story seemed to get going to a compulsive hungry action thriller, however halfway through the book the powerful events and pace collapsed as the charecters became thin and the dialogue poor. Russell Andrews prooves he has a sound knowledge of U.S Politics and a good business head , however as a novelist in this book, to me he lacked an original voice and his humour was dreary and cheesy borrowed from such stalwarts in the field as Lawrence Sanders and Douglas Kennedy.This is nowhere near the high quality of Grisham or Patterson.
The story was to long with uneccecary deadwood . But at least it kept me hooked.
