I notice that this book did not get many favorable reviews, but I am not sure why. It certainly isn’t the best book that I have ever read, but it was not the worst either. I thought that it was entertaining and it kept me turning the page.
I didn’t care a whole lot about the villains, but I liked that they kept the identity of the kidnapper from us until Alex found out as well.
I also really like Bree as a character. That may be why I am enjoying these later installments more than other readers are.
I feel like the kidnapper’s storyline did end a bit abruptly. He wanted to kill Alex, and the book is even titled after that, but he didn’t even attempt to kill him. I found that a bit weird.
It was a pretty average book with a terrorism element, but I still found it entertaining. I found it hard to stop reading.
