I received this book as part of LibraryThing’s early reviewer program in exchange for an honest review.

This book started out pretty strong, but then it drifted off into different threads and the story weakened because of it. Still it ended strong.

Don't judge this book by its cover. This is a 1.5 stars for me, despite the amazing cover art. The individual elements that make up this book, when looked at statistically seem like they should be very interesting. Spies, assassinations, mystery, super powers, end-of-life main character, it all sounds like something that should be inherently enjoyable with very little difficulty bringing all the elements together in an entertaining way. What is delivered, however, is a great study in how even the greatest ideas can fail in execution. What is interesting about this book is that I found far more enjoyment trying to understand why the book wasn't enjoying to read than I did actually reading it. At times it is difficult to tell why the story falls flat. Ultimately I think it is because the story, world, and characters are all under developed, leaving the reader with little or no attachment to the aforementioned elements. The main characters are old, but other than the occasional direct references to their ages, it doesn't play into the story at all, to the extent that I often forget their ages and when I remember how old they are some of the scenes seem less believable. The story seems half-baked. It never really feels clear why everything is happening, how it became that everything important happens at a small restaurant, or why I should care. This underdeveloped story to some degree ties into the fact that the world in general seems very shallow. This shallowness keeps the story from ever really taking off, and steals any surprise or mystery from the reader. Nothing is ever included that isn't needed later. Some elements or characters don't show up until exactly when they are needed, introducing new superpowers like a child that has backed themselves into a corner while telling a story. Like I said at the beginning of the review, the individual elements have great potential, and combining them could be an absolute slam dunk, but it didn't happen in this book. The story, world, and characters all need more depth to create anything interesting.… (mais)
