Customer Review

on 23 August 2005
Although I enjoyed this book, I think it's appeal lies strictly in good reading for the summer beach holiday or plane ride. I certainly wasn't bored at all and I would buy and read the author's other books, but they aren't on my favourite reading list either.
On the downside, it was fairly lightweight, the characters and plot could have done with a lot more layering or complexity. This was best illustrated in the way that two of the characters were thrown together for the hint of a romance in the last few pages, with no buildup at all to their relationship.
For all that, it was an enjoyable read. It's strength was in its raising of the moral issues and ambiguities involved in defending evil against punishment for the greater good of society as a whole. These aspects of the plot were intriguing enough to keep me reading to the last page.
The author is no Richard North Patterson, but if you're looking for something to while away a few hours in the sun, you could find a lot worse out there.
