Publisher's Summary

The first victims are random. Ordinary citizens, fired upon at rush hour by unseen assassins. Caught in the crossfire of one of the attacks, rescue specialist Jonathan Grave spies a gunman getting away - with a mother and her young son as hostages. To free them, Grave and his team must enter the dark heart of a nationwide conspiracy. But their search goes beyond the frenzied schemes of a madman's deadly ambitions. This time, it reaches all the way to the highest levels of power.

"Jonathan Grave, my favorite freelance peacemaker, problem-solver, and tough-guy hero, is back-and in particularly fine form.” (Jeffery Deaver)

Great story, 3 story lines going on here!

Very fast moving story, jumps right into the fray, lots of Misdirection, religious zealots, power plays, and corruption on all sides.
But unlike many books this book explores paybacks for blindly letting others lead you around, with out thinking your responsibility for your actions.
You actually rejoice with some of the characters when justice is enforced.
You cannot do bad thing without reckoning

Lackluster

A little escapism is good for all of us on occasion, and listening to Jonathan Graves' exploits certainly fills the bill. Translated: I like the series. Not so much on this one, however.

The story seems to drift from scene to scene without the kind of detail that enriches. Characters we know well don't seem to know each other at times; and while I appreciate the differing moral perspectives of Jonathan and Gail and how these conflicts leverage their relationship, I do not believe the themes are well developed. We are only shown shadows of what should be a major sub-plot that enriches the entire series.

That and a poorly constructed and rushed finale bothered me. Basil Sands, however, managed to irritate me from beginning to end. His voice does not have the timber this assignment calls for, and his characterizations (especially that of Boxer) are laughable. They are simplistic, sometimes crude, and poorly done. This fact alone robs the story of appeal. Add the weak story development and I rate this one low. I debated a 3 but just couldn't do it.
