I have enjoyed Baldacci for many years, but this one was a disappointment from beginning to end. It is 100 pages too long, filled with meaningless dialog and plot tangents that add nothing. It reads like a teenage adventure story. Robie and Reel always seem to find just what they need to escape certain death, sometimes out of thin air. Superman and Wonder Woman! Cliche after cliche after cliche. I finished it because I usually do, but I wish I hadn't.
