Wonderful story, but it made me so tense, I had to stop reading it. Will probably do something I rarely do, and that is read the last two chapters. Wish I could have read it through, but just couldn't. His writing drove me nuts, because he would leave you hanging at the end of a chapter and then write about someone else in the next chapter; then pick up that someone and move on with the story. Oh Well..will try his next book.
