I read this, all the time waiting for it to become the rip roaring, exciting, thrill-a-minute ride that this should be, but somehow it falls short. The characters are ill-defined; If this was a TV series or movie, or even a graphic novel, we could follow visual clues but I'm afraid without visual definition I was often left wondering who was who and, even worse, wondering if I cared. The story's not bad and the London setting fine enough. But it didn't grip me by the throat- There was always something else I could find an excuse to read. Disappointing.
