Plot 3 out 5 stars – predictable pathway

Characters 4 out of 5 stars

I read the second adventure because I enjoyed the first, the mystery is a lot of fun and introduces us to the main enemy group (goes a different route than Cussler) and the group is then carried throughout many novels as the main bad guys (the Domnion) it actually helps the novel and provides some quality jerks to the plot line.

The characters are better developed. The novel takes place in the US Northwest.

Overall 3 out 5
