This is one of those books in which the first half is better than the last. The first part of the book is fast paced and very interesting. The last half is slow and boring at times. I pride myself on reading every word of a book, but I must admit that I skipped many pages in this novel. Don't get your hopes up too high and you won't be disappointed.
