There are others I could include - 'page-turner', 'unputdownable' etc. The reasons I didn't score it higher included the repetition of plot development cues especially in Tom's thought narratives and the pure self-confidence and indestructibility of the main character, Tom; he was built like a brick, could spit out martial art moves in the blink of an eye, just happened to store a grab bag rea This was a good piece of crime thriller.

In the back of my mind, I would sometimes think about the statement Carole Carter made to me. Now I know better, some are truly innocent. This is where the second coming of Point Break truly excels. This unique book opens a door to enter the life of undercover agents with near death experiences and true pucker moments as things go awry. If you are a fan of the original Point Break by Kathryn Bigelow, the film where Patrick Swayze played a bank robbing surfer who took Keanu 'I am an FBI agent' Reeves under his wing, watch that film again.
She gave me a tour of the estate. I'm not going to give anything of the plot away - suffice to say there are touches of hero-on-the-run narrative seen from Three Days of the Condor to the Bourne Adrenaline Rush: The Adventures of an Undercover Cop, but done in an interesting and fresh way, cliches of execution no pun intended avoided.
Over the next few months I would have feelings of sadness and anger, then hope and anticipation that something good was going to happen, although things kept getting worse. Yet the impact of these daredevil stunts is wasted on a film that fails on almost every other level. I told him that the woman who was shot, Carole Carter, was the same woman who had wanted to hire me a few months back and the one we had talked about.
What a fascinating adventure with an ex-military undercover turned cop!
