I was really hoping to be into this book by Gregg Hurwitz, as I've liked his other stuff. Plus, it's part of a series, so it would have given me some new books to read. But, alas, I found the writing to be excruciatingly detailed and it wasn't as enjoyable as I had hoped. I suppose this is in line with the character, who was an orphan and selected for a government program to basically be trained as an assassin. Not too far-fetched, eh? I could live with that because most fiction is, well, rather fictional. But, it just wasn't my cup of tea.
My rating: 3/5
