Fine. Not exceptionally good or exceptionally poor. Much more coincidence than I like in a thriller. Also, I felt like it was longer than necessary. I could have done with less detail and fewer plot trails and irrelevant story lines.
This made up for the problems I had with the writing to some degree. Even though I felt like the coincidences were distracting, they still made for an interesting story. It did all fit together like a puzzle in the end and there were some moments that shocked me. The main problem is that I didn't really care about the characters. The story itself was interesting enough and kept me going even though the slower portions of the story.
Ok. Nothing to write home (or on my blog) about. Not bad though.
If you're really into the genre, I'd give it a try. Otherwise, I think there are better books for dipping your toes into the thriller pool.
