One of the things I like about Mr Grant is that his villains always have logical motivations for what they are doing (or trying to do) and that when looked in certain way the heroes may be only a little better than the villains. What I particularly liked about this book is that the hero (Cochrane) has enough awareness to realize that some of the things he does (or commands others to do) are indeed pretty dark shades of grey even though they are for the most part the ones being sinned against. Cochrane is clearly going to have to struggle to ensure that he does take the morally better course not just the most expedient.
But despite success, they are finding that rapid growth and monetary success aren't an unalloyed good things. Organized crime doesn't like losing their hard-stolen wealth. Nor do shady commercial syndicates. And the flip side of being an established company is that your enemies know where to find you . . .
This book builds on the setting given in the first, fills in many details, and sets up the conditions for the finale. It even resolves a few new issues brought up in the current volume. What it doesn't do, on it's own, is resolve any of the major ongoing issues from the first book. Thank heavens the final book of the trilogy is only a few weeks away!
I need to read slower, obviously. Now, I have to wait until July for part 3. Drat!
The book is well plotted, and reads fast. It’s not a thriller, but Grant has a talent for pulling you into a story and holding on for dear life. I read it over several evenings and was always surprised by how much time had passed while I was wrapped up in the book.
I’m looking forward to see how this story continues in the next book, due out next month, and I hope you enjoy An Airless Storm as much as I have.
