This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Fans of the Grey Man, maybe. The characters are flat as cardboard. No background or personalization whatsoever. I previously complained that Patricia Highsmith spent too much time in developing a character and what they were thinking. This is the other extreme: no character at all.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Not at all. I didn't care a bit for the characters, therefore the plot was of no interest. If anything kept me on the edge of my seat it was wondering when I might learn something about the characters.
What about Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow ’s performance did you like?
Unlike others, the use of two different narrators, one for first-person and one for third-person, didn't bother me at all. They were adequate but didn't have anything interesting to work with.
Any additional comments?
I have worked my way through most books that I didn't care for, but a few, including this one, I just couldn't finish. I really didn't care what happened, so the slog wasn't work the effort. I quit and returned the book.

I'm really getting into this series. the writing gets better in every book. I don't think any character will ever replace Mitch Rapp as my favorite series but pike is definitely my number 2 now. can't wait to get through the rest of the series. thanks for the great stories with just enough side drama to make the stories keep going and feel so realistic.
