As another reviewer has said, this could have been written by a child with apologies to the child if it was. Started reading then found it so slow and obvious that I could jump a few pages ahead and still keep up with the story. The writing would make Raymond Chandler or P. G. Wodehouse turn in their grave. Thrillers should make you wonder where the characters' thought processes were taking them. This author TELLS you. What ever happened to the writers' adage of show not tell? Boring! How on earth did it ever get published?
