The action starts in Pitfall in the very first paragraph on the first page, and never lets up. There is a tiny bit of a lull about a third of the way into the book when John Brenner is scouting out GenSys and the surrounding areas. However, it isn't dull enough or long enough to lift the tension or distract you from reading, and when the hero takes out a couple of bad guys picking on a poor girl, it more than makes up for it.
What I also liked about this book is that not being really familiar with a lot of military gadgets and weaponry, I was still able to clearly follow the action and understand what was being used and when and why.
What is unusual about Pitfall is that at the midway point in the book when most novels start to get the mid-novel slumps, that is when the action really picks and it never lets up. Even the ending calls more more action and offers a hint of a promise of romance as well. There had better be a sequel or I am going to be very disappointed. After all, justice must be served.
The story is lively, and puts P. I. John Brenner in some sticky and dangerous predicaments as he is searching for a missing girl. The author made the book flow in an easy to read style and I kept hoping he finds who he was looking for before she disappears forever.
My only disappointment in the book was that some of the bad guys did get away...which gives me hope that Cameron Bane will have the private investigator looking for them in another book!!
Recommended for readers of suspense who don't mind a dose of blood and gore along with the high action.
