I found this to be another solid read from Crouch, not one that knocked my socks off but good none the less.
The pacing was great and I found this to be a fast and engaging read. The characters were fairly likeable but there were none that I really connected to that well. I was somewhat disappointed with the character of Javier, after first encountering him in Afraid I expected a much nastier character, I don't think he was developed enough.
The story line was well executed although it was certainly far fetched. There were also times that characters actions were not believable or authentic for their situation.
Still very enjoyable and a great read for pure escapism
