In this book, Deaver introduces yet another new character, John Pellam (that’s along with Lincoln Rhyme and Kathryn Dance who are both sort of investigators). It took a while to get to know John Pellam, unlike the others, to whom Deaver cleverly introduces the reader in each other’s books. He’s not the typical star of a thriller – he works in the movie business, yet this book isn’t set in Hollywood or even on a film set, so the book plodded along until the real plot emerged. Fortunately, Pellam turns out to have experience as a stunt man, just as the action gets tough and he needs to roll with the punches.
