Demian's Thoughts:

I enjoyed this book; its plot twists unexpectedly but not unbelievably, and the story is well-defined and fairly consistent. There's at least one continuity problem (it's possible to report a kidnapping that you can't possibly know about), but since everything else works pretty well, the error is forgiveable.

Good's Thoughts:

Sorry, no. Major disappointment. 2.5/10

Scrumptious's Thoughts:

I liked this one as a kid, in part because it treated me as an adult. I liked being a private eye in a realistic way, following suspects and committing minor trespass, as opposed to the Bond-style secret agent or the kids-investigate-neighborhood-crimes trope. The plotlines that lead overseas are the best ones.
