Customer Review

VINE VOICEon May 11, 2004
Since others will no doubt cover the plot, I would like to comment on matter, style and personal recommendation.
Subject matter: Keeping with his eerie and uncanny ability to make fiction read like unfolding history, Flynn does it again! Perhaps one of the more bizarre "true to life" events in this title is the description of torture and abuse depicted early in the book. There are numerous times throughout the book that one might confuse headlines from Drudge with the fictional content of Memorial Day. It really is uncanny!
Style: Mr. Flynn's style is smooth with easy transitions. Not always "fast," but always compelling and interesting throughout the story line. I would compare his style with his earlier works, but there is a noted maturity with the last two. The stories are not hurried as some authors breeze through their works.
Recommendation: He reads like Clancy on detail and plot. He reads like Grisham in descriptive drama. He captivates like Dan Brown.
I hope this helps you make a better decision. I hope you enjoy this title as much as I did.
