Disappointing

This is an interesting story line and a bit different for an espionage novel. Unfortunately I think the narrator really ruined it, at least for me. The storyline was a bit choppy but well thought out. If you are debating using a credit for this or another, I would think twice about using it here.

A solid Finder story

I enjoyed this book although it wasn't among Joseph Finder's best. It was still pretty good, with vague supernatural overtones. Not super-intriguing, but easy to follow. I didn't have a problem with the narrator as others have, in fact, I found his voice suitable to the first-person narration, if a little hesitant. The characters were all well-fleshed out, the story takes some crazy leaps which one won't expect and perhaps the wind-up is a little bit contrived. But overall it's another fun, engaging novel of good people caught miserably in bad circumstances, using Extraordinary Powers to get unentangled, and maybe save the world!
