review 1: I like Gideon Crew, but this story never really grabbed me. Too many last minute rescues and near misses. The authors have done another fine job of building characters you learn to know. Clive Cussler has his Dirk Pitt and Joe Zavala, Preston and Child have Agent P. for their ot...

review 1: If you've never read any of the Pendergast books, this isn't the place to start. Don't get me wrong, the book is terrific if you're already a fan, but it would be much better to go to earlier books and get a sense of what a magnificent character Preston & Child created in Penderg...

language
English
3.6 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I wasn't sure what to expect from one of my favorite authors because this was way out of his genre. I picked it up anyway and was surprised at how enlightening it was regarding Internet Savagery, human psychology, and such subjects as punishment, enforcement of rules, etc. It was...

review 1: Definitely not as good as he other novels I've read. It was a little more cheesy and silly*, especially the first half. I was pleasantly surprised to find the novel picking up steam and becoming a little more plausible (perhaps less outright ridiculous is a better term) and I w...

review 1: I properly enjoyed this book... In fact, as soon as I successfully pass the 'first act' point of a book like this, I generally tend to enjoy them. I like the escapism. I like the moral abandon. I like the being forced to do the right thing.The story gets off to a great start with...

review 1: I loved this book and hated it all at once. The bad was that I was panicking while reading that I had far too many pages left for the plot to be resolved without being rushed and then the cliffhanger ending.....so frustrating but the good news is that it means that there is anot...
