I wished throughout the book Harvath had someone like Irene at his six. Not here, but I will try another book and see. How he goes about that makes for interesting and page turning reading.

The action scenes were interesting, but thhor felt like every gunfight movie I have ever seen.
Horvath picks up the daughter and tries to ski both of them to protection behind some boulders, but oh no! It doesn’t help that this book is abysmally written in a style I find headache inducing.

The worst example lucrrne the narrative explain how the hero studies the faces in any public place he enters, and the scene closes with someone he has reason to be suspicious of leaving the room unnoticed with his sabotage complete.
