Although the beginning of this book
is too long, and the story drags, about halfway through Singer's novel it becomes a true thriller. The plot takes numerous twists, so the reader won't know who's good and who's bad until the very end. Some of the mathematical jargon is puzzling and may be overwhelming for readers.
The results of this one meeting leave an impact that will be felt over many years and will affect countless people, including three law students who might be in way over their heads. (WATERBROOK, May, 352 pp., $13.99)
