For someone that is new on the scene as an author, Mr. Alcaras does it like a veteran. The story was fast paced and as I read, I wanted more. As a long time reader I found the plot to be original, not a recycled version of another text. I particularly liked the way he described the actions of the characters. He picked up on little nuances that are often overlooked by other authors. This book was definitely a thrill ride and I can hardly wait until I can read more by Mr. Alcaras.
