I read the 1st chapter and though "Uh oh, don't know if I want to read this one." Then in typical Patterson (and Roughan) fashion, by the end of the 3rd chapter I was hooked again. Very interesting characters, character development and super story line. I was fooled at the beginning and fooled again at the end - and you may be as well. Or not. Read it an enjoy the ride! There was a 1-line hint dropped near the end that suggests we may see this main character(s) again. That would be fun too!
