A one hundred million price tag for a hit seems ridiculous. There’s nothing really interesting about the perpetrators. The main character, Harvath ,is an alcoholic. But that goes away when the action start. The action scenes are well done. But on the whole , the writing is flabby. Is it really necessary to explain to the reader that perfetto means perfect in Italian. There’s an annoying bit that “explains” that shanty Irish in Boston are low class as opposed to the more respectable lace curtain Irish. There is a statue in Boston Harbor honoring the Irish who fled there from the famine. Hardly any of them were lace curtain.
