I had can't-put-the-book-down-syndrome with this one. This was a very edge of your seat, just one more page book. I found it very well written, with a good, believable storyline, and I like stories I can believe. Lots of unexpected twists and turns held my attention. Mr. Smith's expertise about the subject matter was evident throughout the book due to his impressive real life career. I thought the characters well developed, with their own struggles and issues apart from the main story. I would recommend this book to any and all that enjoy a good thriller. I received this book as an ARC from the author.
