I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters are fleshed out, although I maybe would have liked a little more fleshing out but they’re certainly not two-dimensional, and the story is engaging – set with a newly formed team of misfits in the FBI who appear to have caught a string of cases around a wider conspiracy.
The pace of this book was so refreshing for me – I’ve read a lot of slower books lately, and this is anything but. The cases come rip-rap for the team, so much so even the team starts to get suspicious of their closure-rate – another plot point running parallel to the greater conspiracy.
Although nothing is too heavily veiled in the story, there were a few curveballs and the knowing didn’t impact my enjoyment. I only had one issue with the story, and it’s such a minor detail it’s really inconsequential – it was just that I’m pretty sure the wrong band was named for a song referenced, and its a song I happen to have been listening to a lot recently (thank you Just Dance and my lockdown exercise routine haha).
I’m definitely interested in reading more from Mark, and looking forward to what comes next. I also hope he revisits this story, as there are a few things I’d love to know more about and I really enjoyed the cast of characters.
