Definitely not my favorite from this strong author. I have read a fair share of his books.
This one had a forced feeling to it and I didn't think flowed as well as some of his other books did.
There were aspects to this book that I had to go back and reread because he had rushed through the incident. In other, what I would have considered less critical, he dragged on.
Now, I tend to like this author's works, so I went ahead and bumped up to 3 stars because this is the first of his books that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed.
