Kuzneski has certainly found his personal recipe for a well selling novel. A set of international locations – with background information soundly researched –, a certain level of violence and gore, (too) detailed insights into the protagonists thoughts, a stable set of repeating characters, and one cliche and semi-witty one-liner after another.
It’s good for some relaxed entertainment, at about the same level as Cussler. Though there are still some annoying writing quirks. The narrator is sometimes ahead of the story and hints at things to come, surprises that lurk in the next chapter and therefore spoils exactly these twists and turns.
