I know nothing about cryptology and really don't want to and it just went into it all way too much and totally took over the whole story. When I find myself rolling my eyes and flicking ahead it's time to call it a day.
By the time I gave up I'd only spotted a couple of apostrophe mistakes so that was good and earned it the extra star from the "I hated it" one star.
Whilst there were a few basic errors which a self respecting private investigation agency should not have made, I was able to forgive those and get on with the story. In the early chapters it all seemed a little too smooth - everyone working together for the best outcome - yeah right. This book differed slightly from other books of the same genre in that the agency was more than happy to work with the FBI rather than trying to outwit them, although even here, they weren't always as open with them as the FBI would have liked, but the reasons for that were solid and well presented. I suppose it helped that Danny's girlfriend was an FBI agent. Even where Danny wasn't totally convinced that collaboration with the FBI would work out, he was able to bring them in on his terms (really?) to mop up the aftermath of events, although that doesn't seem to have been as thorough as it might have been.
The staff were well chosen for the different skills they brought to the agency, and between them they all contributed to the eventual outcome, despite some sloppy errors that even a novice would blush to admit to.
There were one or two passages which I found myself pondering the purpose. Why did we need to know so much about the man who found Rasmussen's body when we never heard anything more about him? Whilst I enjoyed reading about it, I couldn't see why we needed to know all about Danny's camping weekend.Read more ›
As always, there's an unnecessary amount of detail about weapons, running schedules, and the music Logan listens to. There's a fairly contemptuous passage about Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, when it's compared to the US 187th Infantry Regiment: since the former saw service in Europe throughout WWI & WWII, and the latter wasn't formed until 1942 and apparently didn't move into a war zone until 1944, I'd suggest the author might like to reconsider his attitude.
The plot itself is actually very good, but it's spoilt by the above, and by some extremely poor proof-reading and editing. Words are run together with monotonous regularity; there are inappropriate changes of tense, quite a lot of repetition, and errors such as 'I'd probably get my it back'.
Having said all that, accept the errors, turn a blind eye to the areas of prosy philosophy, and the painfully slow development of personal relationships in this book. Celebrate the understated and largely unacknowledged skills of Doc, who really is the hero here, and buy the sequel, which is in a different league.

Must be a good read. Lost a lot of sleep, couldn't stop once started . Fast, lots of twists and turns. Easy read , very enjoyable, although not for the very serious reader.Published 7 months ago by RETPHARM
