    " Fast paced, well written, with a sustained momentum in a plot above Patterson's usual standards. He seems seems to have run out of steam in recent years. Clinton's weighty contribution is clear. Yes, the American patriotism was inevitable, if irritating to non-Americans, but it doesn't lessen a thoroughly good read. "
