Well.....definitely not as slick and easily read as the other two “Jack Harvey” novels.
Too much extraneous information, too many references to various philosophers of whom I am not familiar and too much military jargon.
I liked the fact that Rankin changed his genre to his Rebus novels, and if I’d read this novel before the other two Harvey offerings, I’d never have bothered with any more....and they are actually better than this one.
Hope that Rankin doesn’t go back to writing this style and gets rid of Rebus permanently as I won’t a reader.
