The author uses a time line to give the reader a "moment by moment" account of what the characters, whether good guys, or bad guys, involved in the various sub plots, are doing. The effect whets the reader's appetite to read on further to find out not only what is going to happen next, but by whom?. Frankly, I find this method of time passage, like that of the TV show 24,to be very engaging making it hard to put the book down.
While each of the six MP5 books stands on its own, story wise, I'd recommend reading the series from book one first, which will give the reader not only insight as to how the MP5 crew began but also a better understanding of how and why they interact as a team.
...Team officer wearing pink shorts happens to stop car close to badguys' hideout and undercover agent sees him but can't contact. Later team get's text message that undercover had seen officer in pink shorts. Pink shorts can't remember where he was, but another officer knows vehicle has GPS navigator that can lead back to badguys' area. This reverse of Murphy's law becomes key to eventually saving VVIP lives.
Still a great story, I'm just being picky because real life never seemed to go that way for me. I've read about the Team since the first novel, and as another reviewer suggests: starting with number one will get you interested (hooked) and the rest will become seamless and evolutionary, even though each novel can stand alone.
The concept of a wealthy individual willing to spend his own money on good works is also a bit of a novelty; we are so accustomed to evil rich villains.
One thing that would be interesting to see in a future story is some uncertainty over "being right" on the side of the good guys; the author has already introduced some uncertainty on the part of the bad guys. The "gray" that results could deepen and enrich the stories even further.
Great job, again, MH.
