Even at the 2nd last page, there is still a twist ! Though I would say that the ending is too good to be true, this book keeps the suspension hanging until the very end. I don't feel like doing any other things except keeping reading this novel. Its entertainment value as a mystery novel is tremendous.
At the end, the author didn't explain why the FBI (or whatever the "powers" are) would just let Natalia go without resolving the issue of her presence when Archer Minor got killed. In order to have the last suspense and/or twist, Jake Fischer went to talk with Natalia's mother, Sylvia Avery, to confirm that Natalia's father Aaron Kleiner was indeed killed by Archer Minor. It's a bit unnatural. Jake could have asked Natalia. Though the author explained by saying that they never talked about it though each knew that the other knew. I have thought when you loved each other, you could be honest to each other ?!
But apart from that, everything else seems reasonable. I've enjoyed reading the calm and analytical mind of Jake at the most dangerous and urgent moments. Even though he didn't always come out at top, we knew exactly what he was thinking and why he did what he had done. This is the first time that I read this author's novel and it's a terrific start !...Continua
