The set up is straight out of thriller-ville and, if the plot squeaks a little here and there from the twists and turns, the characters more than make up for it.
And I think it’s the characters that make this book. Krever does a remarkable job blending strengths and weaknesses to keep everybody on edge–including this reader. From the evil Russian (pick one) to the ex-GI to the orphaned daughter of a mind bending colleague, the characters have just enough edge to stay with you without being over the top. I found I didn’t really care how the plot turned out. I just wanted to see what the characters would do next.
It’s a little different from my normal fare, from a writer with a couple other titles in his basket. After reading this one, I’m thinking I may have to check out some of them.
I give it a solid four stars.
Well written, good story with convincing characters and an original take on the theme of mind-reading. A thoroughly recommended read from an author that is both accomplished and promising.
I found this book gripping from start to finish, The author allows you into the minds et of all the character’s and is action packed from start to finish. Not my usual genre but am glad I got to read it as it was brilliant and DEFINITELY recommend it to all.
