Good story, but feels like a draft still...

First of all, I like Ben Coes and the Dewey Andreas novels. I've read them all so was excited to get the new book. However, it feels like it needed one or two more rounds with the editors before being published.
There were some plot jumps, characters who were in one spot, then a page later, a completely different place. Weapons changed models after being already described. And there was a key plot point that was ignored in the final stretch (bars lowering and closing off the ground level of a certain building at the end randomly disappeared). Also, there is not a "manual fire" mode on weapons. There is Safe, Semi-auto, and full-auto.
It was a fun read but waaay too distracting catching all the errors.
