Absolutely an amazing thriller. I was completely entranced by the interweaving of two seemingly unrelated plots with a central cast of characters. It actually worked very well. It took me awhile to realize who the central character would be. that is how well crafted the author has made the storyline. The characters were very believable and interesting - even the minor ones. Russell Blake is the real deal and can compete easily with the mainstream published authors.
Some reviewers thought there was an underlying theme of concerted violence against women. They should get a grip on reality and give the author a break. There is nothing here to complain about. Simply a great novel. I enthusiastically will be looking for more titles by this talented author.
