I understand this is the first book written by Mr. O'Conner. That being said, I must say this book was very well written. The first four chapters set up the remainder of the book and was necessary, though I thought it was a bit boring with the details. As I progressed through the book, I found that the details were necessary to explain the "Hero's" thought process and his moral compass. Being an ex-police officer, I found it unusual to be rooting for the "bad guy". The way Mr. O'Connor ended the book, left little doubt the "Hero" would be back and I am anxiously awaiting his return.
