I read Reich's first book for a mystery book club and liked it well enough, but this was the first one I have read since then. And he has improved. This one has been compared to Ludlum, Follett and Forsyth and I wouldn't disagree with those comparisons, but Reich is not yet in their class. But close. A good thriller in the Bourne tradition where the main character does not know exactly what is going on, but handles things well. A good read. Not exactly believable, but then, neither is Bourne. Recommended.
