Not one of my favorite Robb books, this is on a par with Ceremony in Death... skip it and not loose much in the series. The only good feature is this is where Peabody and McNab hook up, but it's not handled with the usual smooth intensity of most interpersonal relationships. It actually feels quite forced, like she couldn't come up with a natural way for these to characters to come together. The plot line is fairly insipid for such a proficient writer and it's sad that there's not much oompf to the book overall. Easy way to get my 300 pages read to get out of jail in BookLikes-opoly.
