There are some problems with the book. Many of the characters are only two dimensional. The outright villain of the book, Cobeth, is described as being very charismatic. He certainly hides it well, or Greenhalgh doesn't show this side of him. He comes across as a vain, self-centered, vindictive jerk. Gadorian, the mayor of the city where most of the action takes place, is supposed to be very intellectual and altruistic, yet he appears to be driven purely by political ambition. He is convinced to ignore his prejudices solely because an outright display of them would hurt his reelection.
This book has some clever ideas in it, most of which work. It's obviously a first book, but Greenhalgh does show considerable talent.
