Best read since “the Martian” by Andy weir ... well paced and plausible ... really enjoyed the inventiveness of seemingly insurmountable problems. Going to miss the team now I’ve finished the book. I really felt part of it. Well done!!!

Overall it was okay

Story is brave and takes on a future with AI and human implants. I don’t know why but it took me the first third of the book to become interested. Maybe I was easily distracted but didn’t stick a single main storyline, instead tried to interweave a number of storylines. I didn’t like the storyline of Adam. As a class 4 AI his strategic thought would have been far superior to cat. Anyway onto book 4 with a hope the excellence built in the first 2 books continues on

Great series

Book 2 continues the setting of book 1. It’s a must read set and this is my second time reading it. Totally recommend it.

This is my second time around having eagerly wanting to start this after my relisten of all the lee child “jack reacher” .... this is a great story and really well researched. I work in the area and it’s all realistic and told well . Hope you enjoy the series

Starts off well but goes slowly downhill .. got to about 2/3 and gave up. Couldn’t get interested in the plot. The characters became stranger as the story continues. Too many good books to go on with.

It’s ok but not great

I read his later series Amos decker and John puller first and thought these were excellent and on the list for a reread in a couple of years. This is obviously and earlier work and while the dynamics of king and maxwell were really well crafted I just found the twists at the end a little less than the build up. Also what happened to book 2 in the series ... what’s the point of having a series of you are missing book? I’m trying the camel club now and giving this series a miss ... shame

I enjoyed the series. Each book developed the characters and gave them depth and purpose. I am going to explore other series now and I will miss will robie and Jessica reel

I really enjoy the writing style of Baldacci and this book starts the series off with an excellent foundation. Looking forward to book 2

I just feel dread when you finish a great series having lived in the lives of the characters and now there’s nothing ... back to reality is like leaving a dream state with a slap in the face 😁
