Her quest brings her in contact with quite a few shady characters and she searches for connections that she might never find. There are probably three or four too many characters for my comfort, and most of them are too one dimensional for my liking. While I enjoy an exciting plot, it is the characterization that generally draws me into a story. I enjoy rooting for the good guys, and found that part of this story weak. While the bad guys have reasons to be bad at times and the good guys aren’t always good (or likable ), none of them invites me to become fully invested in their stories.
There is no question that Abbott knows how to fashion a plot that will have his readers trying to figure out what is going on until the very last page, and I kept wanting to go back to the story whenever I had to put the book down to do something else. It is fast moving and entertaining, and I look forward to searching out some of his other books for my summer collection.
