This book had the potential to be a great thriller; however,the author seems to have thrown too many elements found in the thriller genre together. Combined with the jumping between characters and storylines, the book quickly turns into a confusing mishmash of characters and events.
For me, it felt that the author tried too hard to include all the elements into the story. The story is interesting enough, and most of the characters are likeable, but overall the book didn't quiet deliver.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in order to review it.
There is some action, but I wouldn't say it was a thriller. The characters did not do much for me and the plot was just okay. There is a mish-mash of things going on that at times I was lost.

Despite enjoying this book overall, I deducted one star from my rating because a few aspects about the writing at times distracted me from becoming completely absorbed in the story. One was the typos. They were worse in the early chapters of the book, but present throughout. I also struggled at times with the extent to which this book's plot takes on an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink quality. It combines just about every theme that you might ever find present in this genre: crime, spies, cops, corruption, conspiracy, medical mystery, corporate greed, social justice, romance, and family relationships. At times I wished the authors had just picked one or two of these elements and developed them more fully.
All in all, I think this would be a great book to take along while traveling or for a day at the beach, especially if you are willing to suspend reality a little bit in exchange for a suspenseful, unique story.
