I downloaded this because I had previously read and enjoyed this author's work. However, I found this book quite disjointed and difficult to get into at first. Nevertheless, I persevered and once I managed to sort out who everyone was and the premise behind the rather complex plot was revealed, I began to really get into the story. Unfortunately, things didn't stay that way for long because there is a great deal of chopping and changing between the characters and I found the lack of focus on a single main protagonist really spoiled the flow of the story. There were an awful lot of characters in this book and several of them seemed to have been put there simply to effect a change or push home a point that had already been made. These minor characters were picked up and dropped at will, making some of the situations seem very contrived, especially when a previously minor character was suddenly pushed into the limelight to carry the story forward. The story revolves around American baseball and not being either sporty or American, the detailed sporting descriptions were a problem for me but in fairness to the author, I probably would have found it just as hard to relate to any sporting story. I felt that the villain was really too awful and that neither his nor any of the other characters were really given the chance to develop naturally. They seemed to be either one thing or the other depending on the situation. There was also a rather worrying lack of ability on the part of the American public to recognise their national heroes when they met them face to face. That seemed to go for all the main characters at least some of the time. Very disappointing.

Spinning a tail of deceit, lies, betrayal and espionage, the story is engaging throughout and is difficult to put down once you start reading. Definitely worth reading.

Very competent story telling.

Perhaps too many threads to draw together towards the end
