Listened to this book at double speed due to the readers' insanely slow pace of reading. Story line started strong, got unlikely, got improbable, and then just got stupid. I plowed through to the end, half hoping for the end to come to the 'hero' along the way. The final battle at the mansion was cheesy but slightly entertaining at the same time. Surprised that this is not some crappy Ben Affleck movie yet. If you skip this book, you won't be missing anything.

Hurwitz never really captured my attention and got me to the "can't put it down" level. The pace bogged down several times with overly-detailed descriptions, and there were multiple instances of relaying the protagonist's thought stream in the middle of a charged situation that created a "stop action" effect. A couple of plot developments were easily foreseen, as Murphy's Law seemed to provide undue influence, while others were so unlikely as to not be credible. About 2/3 through the book, I really wanted to give it up, but I hate to leave a book unfinished, just in case there is a surprise turn of events.
