CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Firstly, I must say how enthralled I was with this book.  I could not put it down.  From one fast-paced scene to another, author D. J. Williams leads the reader through a maze of conspiracies, criminals, and deaths.  In the beginning, I was not sure this book would be my cup of tea.  It did not take long before I knew this was a powerhouse of a book.  A complicated conspiracy with many intensely driven characters and layers, Williams hooks the reader and does not let go as he leads you through his story.  What a story this is!
