This story started out with great intrigue and suspense. Our two main characters are in a situation where they can't trust each other. Anthony finds he can't trust anyone. It actually made for a good story until midway when it shifted from an involved suspense thriller into an absurd Shakespearean comedy like Twelfth Night with all the absurd contrivances and twists and turns.
However, despite the rather convoluted half of the book, it still was a fun read. I would go so far to say that I really liked it but it was amusing.
