This book was fast-paced and difficult to put down. Parts were quite predictable such as the romantic involvement of two characters. It's a typical beautiful girl gets nice guy scenerio. They fall for each other too quickly and you're not sure who's pursuing whom.
Wouldn't you like a story once in awhile where the main character gets killed? Does the main character always have to be a hero?
The main plot involves the Russian Mafia. Mafia-type stories are not my type of read, however, I've read one of Mr. Bell's books previously and that was really enjoyable so I gave this one a try.
In this one, you'll see that the government can't always be trusted. It's too bad too, that the legal system isn't really righteous, although this book portrays it the way it is. The criminal is so often portrayed as the victim, and they are often victorious! It really depends on the judge, jury, circumstances, witnesses and your lawyer. Evidence is quite often dismissed.
Anyway, yes, it is worth the read. Just expect the expected in places.
