This book is a great read! Thoroughly engrossing. The author knows so much about his subject that he makes what we hope is implausible seem frighteningly possible! You feel like you are actually in the room with the characters (many of whom are disturbingly real). I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
It took me a while to get into this book, but when I did I found it gripping and couldn't put it down. The ending stayed with me for a long time - highly recommended read!
