A good read, not Morrell's best work.
No one writes better than Morrell when it comes to the "fugitive" novel - one man hunted by many in a cross-country chase.
Unfortunately, a great story is slightly marred by the protagonist's constant internal psychobabble about who he really is (he confuses himself with the various personas he's become over the years). An even bigger problem is the ultra-rich villain. He's a parody of the James Bond super villain. The climax of the book is hokey and almost laughable. Too bad that a 400+ page book is marred by 10 pages at the end. A worthwhile read but be prepared.
I rate this book 4 stars out of 5.
