It is somewhat difficult to review these books since, in a way, they are very similar to each other in the way each episode of A-team or MacGyver or any other such like TV-show is, in a way, similar. Cain just gets a new problem to solve each time. As usual the solution involves liberal application of violence and if violence do not solve the problem you use more violence. Thus when you have reviewed the first couple of book it becomes difficult to write something new.
This is quite a short book with just above 200 pages which is a bit disappointing. In my opinion the author could easily have merged this book and the next one (which I have already read) Scorched Earth since they are really part of the same story arc in The Human Chronicles universe. Those of you who has already read any of the books in this book series known what you should expect and this book is no exception. A pretty lightweight, quick but action filled and entertaining read.
