From the thrilling opening to the riveting ending, the tension ratchets up to almost unbearable levels.

The Blade Itself book. I loved Sakey's "Brilliance" series and thought I'd give his other novels a go. I liked this crime thriller a lot - Sakey can write. It moved quickly once he really got going. Great at building suspense, but his endings fall flat for me. The end of the "Brilliance" trilogy felt the same. It's like he can get the train going really fast but slowing it down and bringing it to a really satisfying close is where he stutters, at least for me.
