Another disappointing First Read. This book was non-stop action with a lot of violence. It had literally no character development - all you know is that this guy's a killer. While this is said to take place in various locations in Spain, and then Croatia., with the level of narrative, it might as well be set in truck stops on the interstate. If you like action (and I could see this going to a movie along the lines of the Bourne flics, which are - wink, wink - mentioned in passing), this may be for you - but don't confuse it with literary fiction.
