While the cover would never have grabbed me, and I'm not usually into stories under this genre, I'm so glad I followed my gut and kept reading! For one, never once was I ever bored by what was going on. Two, in conjunction with that, there were a lot of nice twists and surprises to keep you going. And finally, I loved the humor--mostly Clark's. Even though with some of the jokes you can tell this is a book geared mainly towards men, I absolutely loved the mystery/action of it all.
