There's no fat - just rich, meaty morsels of legal, business, and geo-political spices that add flavor without forcing an agenda down anyone's throat. Firm Resolve has loads of perspective from European, Asian, and American ex-pats. Also, you get several points of view: one female, two male, and a 3rd person point of view.
Careful not to read too fast or you'll miss the breadcrumbs that stir this pot of stew. Plenty of double entendres add texture to this complex, quirky mystery that reads like a stage play with snappy comebacks.
I was particularly pleased with the print used in the book. The print was spaced for easy reading. As a result, I finished the book in three days.
What appears initially as a one dimensional character enjoying the frivolous lifestyle of the affluent expats residing in Asia, eventually evolves into a far more complex story than anyone would expect.
Geo-political themes quietly underpin the book, in a manner so subtle, most readers will miss what becomes the focal point of the story.
So cool to read a book about diverse characters where race isn't a major part of the story. Flynn's portrayal of Asian men (who become a stronger part of he story as the book progresses) is neither wimpy nor abusive -- as is often the case in popular mainstream films/books.
Overall, this mystery thriller was an escapist adventure.
