I must admit, this book was a difficult read in the middle. Mr. Hurwitz composed it in such a way that it was hard to envision how the bad guys were going to get their just desserts. If you find your stomach roiling with acid toward the middle, take some Pepto and persevere because the last several chapters are far and away the best of the book! The way the ending plays out is nothing short of masterful! Gave it five stars...only because I couldn't give more.
