Vetry Enjoyable Book

My husband and I both really enjoyed this book.We listened to it on the way to our recent vacation and on the way back.All the time during the vacation I was trying to work out the ending.We have a very slow truck which we use for holidays and the story made the driving time fly.No possible chance of falling asleep at the wheel.The book has a wonderful twist in the ending and is ultimately satisfying as the underdog / good guy wins in the end.
