Implausible plot. Cardboard characters. Supposedly set in Grand Cayman, but the geography in the book doesn't match that of the actual island. There's a hair-breadth escape in every chapter, by unbelievable means sure to elicit groans and eye-rolling. Better stick with Jack Reacher or Bob Lee Swagger if you want real action/thriller writing.
Given the fact that this is a self-published book (no price, publisher, bar code, etc. to be found anywhere), one might expect a somewhat lesser level of writing style - but this book appears not to have been edited. Typos abound. In one sequence, our principals enter a convenience store with $500 worth of stolen travelers checques, and make a deal with the proprietor to sell them for 50 cents on the dollar. On the next page, they leave the store with $2500. I gave up on this one after 90 pages.
