First, let me qualify this by saying I'm a huge Greg Iles fan and a huge Nelson DeMille fan, so the bar for me in action/adventure/thriller novels is very high. This book is "okay," but I didn't really find any strong character development or amazing powers of description, or even a super strong plot line. Lots of things in the book could have been developed further to make the story more realistic, but the writer just drops the ball. Maybe the biggest problem is that it's more like reading a comic book than a novel. The hero takes over all law enforcement functions anywhere he goes, which is just poor research and poor attention to realistic detail. The daughter gets the story going, but actually her involvement makes no sense if you stop to think about it. The key here is not to think about it, because all the natural questions that pop into your head as you wish it were more realistic aren't going to be answered. I read the book to get it over with. The pace was good enough for that. Would I read another of this guy's books? Nope.
