Having read a number of Erec Stebbins novels and having enjoyed them all, I decided to read his debut novel to see how good he was when he first burst on the scene as a published author. Overall, I was not disappointed but was not overwhelmed.
The story started out with high potential for an outstanding novel of intrigue and a great thriller. Halfway through I was thinking how great the book was and ready to rate 5 stars. The more I read I started to think that it was getting a bit wonky and far-fetched. I really have to wonder if the author was having a difficult time writing an ending that was worthy of the first half of the story.
The characters were well developed as expected from my previous readings by this author. I just wish the ending had been comparable to the beginning. Overall it is a decent read and does showcase the author's writing skills.
