An exhausting book to read, but only because of how fast it moves and how much the main character, Arthur Cathcart, goes through. He and his wife are victims of an execution style killing, but Arthur survives. And decides to stay dead so he can wreak revenge.
He finds assistance throughout the wreaking, people he trusts. Arthur is intelligent and has a headstart in that he is a thorough researcher and fast learner. He takes on everything with cautious intense zeal to get to the endgame.
I felt like I was reading a high voltage MAN IN THE IRON MASK and it was an excellent ride. Exhausting, but excellent just like a good thriller should be.
