This book was an author giveaway. He was kind enough to inscribe it to me, number, date, and sign it.
I regret that at this time, I am unable to get beyond page 47. Given that I have not completed the book, I will not give it a star rating.
It would seem from other reviews, readers tend to love this book, or, like me, it's missing something. I can say with certainty, the use of the present tense is unsettling, though it does give the scenes a sense some sense of urgency. I will leave this with my unread books and perhaps try it again in the future.
