This story kind of meandered along like a quiet country road...until, in classic Savage style, about 30 pages from the end you suddenly find yourself on the swerves and curves of a cliffside hill, barreling toward the end at breakneck speed. This is what I LOVE about reading Tom Savage's stuff...I think I know what's up, but I really don't until literally the last twist on the very last page. Bravo, TS, for getting me yet again. Nothing is better than a book that leaves you saying "Whoa" when you close it for the last time: Mission accomplished! ( )
