Review of 'Alpha' on Goodreads

4 stars

I've read all the Greg Rucka books. Let's not talk about how many times I read the first 3 Atticus Kodiak. [return][return]And this book suffers in comparison. It's a perfectly good thriller. Fits into present day well without being too fear mongering. But given the standard of character development I'm used to from him... it just doesn't hold up. It felt too short. I felt like we could have skipped one of the viewpoints we rotated through and gotten to know someone else better. Or just had a longer book. [return][return]Wonderful handling of the antagonist and his motivations - but again, it's the comparison that makes Jad suffer. Seems like there will be sequel, and maybe we'll get more then. [return][return]4 stars - recommended if you like thrillers.
