This book was good. It took me a long time to get through it. If it wasn't for this assignment to read and review the book I think I would have quit about 1/3 of the way through. I'm glad I didn't in the end. In the beginning you are following six different characters with many more side characters. A good 50% of the book is just setting up the background of the story and the people. It doesn't really get exciting until about 2/3 of the way through. If you can make it that far than you will fly through the last third of the book.
I am a huge fan of Lis Wiehls books. This one was no exception in the end. Lis Wiehl is very good about weaving these interesting complex plot lines and yet making them understandable to the author.
