One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Jon Sable, Freelance: Ashes Of Eden #4

GOOD THING: Lots of beautiful, dual-page splashes alternating between scenes of Jon being tortured and some sort of vision of an African warrior woman who asks him why he does what he does when all he really wants is to join his dead wife and children.

BAD THING: Beautiful as the psychodrama scenes are, they take up a lot of pages... which results in the actual plot information being condensed - along with a non-preachy author's message - into about three pages.

The Final Verdict: A gorgeous book which suffers from some minor pacing problems. Still, it's a riveting read for all fans of good action books.
