Those three words are the last ones in this roler coaster ride of a book. I won't give away anything of the plot, for that would really spoil the reading entertainment for the next person down the line. What I will say is this book will keep you up late turning pages until its finished, and then you will be left wanting more.

The writng is good, the characters well defined and the action non-stop. Perhaps for some the underlying basis for the plot is unrealistic, but I believe that a reader should just accept the premise the author sets out as of it were actual, and just go along for the ride. There's no reason to question some of the leaps of logic in the book; I enjoyed every one of htem, even if I found many of them preposterous.

When you have a good book written by a writer with talent, just enjoy it! That's how I look at reading, and it works very well. Buy and read this book: you won't be disappointed!
