What is your opinion of the book?

The book was intriguing and mysterious. The book was a fast read and the word usage was easy to understand. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries and action with a little hint of romance. Personally, I found the book okay but not one of my favorites. The thing I didn't like about the book was the story was kind of slow at developing the plot and it was kind of choppy, jumping from one thing to the next.
