This book is the most off-kilter provocative sequence of brilliant plot twists, and that in just the first 38 pages, better than I can ever remember reading in a long dry spell of reading Anthony or anyone else.
I got unbearably excited, but Anthony had taken one of the greatest plot risks of all time and the denouement was bound to dissapoint in comparison.
My only real complaints beyond oversized expectations are that I don't really agree with the moral position his main character takes (but how many people would, given his occupation?), and that the other characters are not nearly so well drawn.
Also, his author's epilogue should be a required reading for would-be-authors who need the inspiration and dedication to write from experience.
