Top critical review
on April 30, 2002
Though the characters were engaging and likeable, I found this book a little boring. The author obviously did a wealth of research to learn how government law enforcement agencies operate. That works for and against this novel. It gives the novel the sharp edge of realism. However, it also buries the suspense of the book in details. In fact, there is very little suspense in this novel. The majority of it consists of the characters sitting around in meetings discussing theories and the latest investigation discoveries.
