In the beginning the story was a mix of slow reading and a steady pace. When it came to the crime and the evil doers (which is not a secret in this book), the pace was well-done. When it come to introducing the main character, I felt that it slowed down quite a bit. But it didn’t detract from the story.
The plot was very interesting. The reader knows from the beginning who the bad guy is so that is not a big part of the plot - the mystery of who did it. It all comes down to what will happen next and what is around the next corner. The story goes between the agent and the evil one so the reader can see more than most writers reveal. There are several surprises that the author holds onto and throws like a grenade at the reader. Keeps one reading to the next chapter.
I went back and forth over the characters. At times I felt connected, and at other times they didn’t seem to do anything for me. They were the weaker parts of the story, but don’t get me wrong. They were not bad. Just personally for me they were hard to connect with.
There is some language in this book. Quite often the F-bomb is dropped as well as other choice words. They are not used just for the sake of being used. I can see the characters actually speaking the way they author has them.
It was a good read. Give the story a try.
Note: I received this book from a free Amazon download with no expectation of a positive review.
