Slow start - but then its a roller coaster!
I almost put this book down because it was going anywhere after the first 50 pages, but things picked up and for the next 675 pages it was one wild plot twist after another. It truly is a fun book to read, but I must warn you - don't get too attached to any of the characters because the author treats any and all of them as expendable.
It involves a man who sees his father's killer at a Paris cafe and his pursuit of the man brings him ito contact with an Interpol investigation of an entirely set of unrelated crimes (or so it seems...)
Good pacing, after the first 50 pages. The end was a bit disappointing, but just about any ending would have been after all of this adventure.
I rate this book 5 stars out of 5.
