this is a hard book to rate as it promises but never quite seems to deliver. Definitely the weakest of Black's Ryan Lock novels to date: I still found it quite good, but in all honesty I kept hoping for something to happen. The characters as always are strong, but the trademark "zip" of his previous novels was missing and the book felt as if it had been padded out. For someone new to Black leave this novel alone and get one of his earlier ones: if like me you've read the earlier ones, give it a go but don't build your expectations too high
