This is a novel that has so many twists it's hard to keep up. It's difficult to untangle the story without giving away the plot so I won't try. Just get ready for a wild read that's hard to put down.
That said, this is the first Dekker book I've read and it will probably be the last. The plot was a little too twisty for my taste and when I was done I didn't feel particularly satisfied. I don't think this book is a waste of time but in my opinion there are better story tellers out there.
