A nice straight up action thriller by Patrick Brown. He does a great job fleshing out the characters and their interactions and choices are depicted realistically, unlike other thrillers that have their leads make bone headed decisions that fly in the face of conventional wisdom and the experience their character is supposed to possess.
I loved the way Brown tied everything up especially how a murder gets Reid involved initially to help out a friend but stay on for different reasons. The twist at the end will surprise many of the readers.
All in all a delightful read. I hope we get a prequel that shows how Salem became what he is.
