So, why aren't I giving it 5 stars?
The plot was OK (fairly straightforward and linear), the characters not particularly well developed and, worst of all, the viewpoint kept swapping around. If I had to pass a single message on to Derek Keyte, it'd be to decide whose eyes you're seeing through and stick with it. If you must chop and change, do it in section or chapter breaks so that it's clear. It made me dizzy at times, I confess.
That said, it's fairly un-put-down-able. Derek, do the book a favour and rewrite it to take out that choppiness. Add in a bit of background flavour to the characters and I think you've got a decent book there (for its genre). I've given you 4 stars rather than 3 (it was borderline for me) in the hope that you'll take this advice.
