When Taylor beats the odds and survives the mission it seems like a small victory, especially when he finds himself facing challenges in his new life in small town America. His State mandated shrink tells him that settling in will take time, but it is pretty clear that his new neighbours don't like him much and would be happier if he moved on sooner rather than later. Too bad they don't know they have a highly trained killer living in their little town, maybe if they did they wouldn't push him quite so hard.
This is another great book from Patterson and DuBois, and knowing that there is a sequel just around the corner made it even more enjoyable. Owen Taylor is a great character and the story moves along at a great clip, although there was a patch in the middle where it feels like I missed something, but otherwise it was a great read devoured in one sitting.
