3 stars

Oh dear, a real disappointment. A clever idea but there came a point in this where its almost as if Connelly either was told to finish it, or he just decided he'd written enough. The denouement is rapid, wham, bam.... and that's it.

Having recently read another of his newer books (Nine Dragons) I have to say i don't like this process and if I was coming to him for the first time it would put me off reading any more.
