An entertaining and readable thriller. It's interesting to see how much better this one is than the first in the series. It's a steep learning curve. Having already read some of the later volumes I know he does get much better. All the elements are in place here and it just needs tightening up a bit. The prominence given to the love interest, for example, and the scenes with the cute kid are just a bit to Hollywood. We literally do not care and in later novels Mariani has worked out that we want scenes of extreme violence told in an amusing way, of which there are plenty here. ( )

Intriguing start, good dialogue and character development.It did have good momentum early, but the lead character - Ben Hope blundered into one scrape too many and the narrative lost its power. Hope comes off as too amateurish allowing himself to be captured after accepting drugged drinks from a strange woman. It also should have been re-titled as Mozart wasn't that germane to the story line. ( )
