I was expecting the origami birds to come into play in a bigger way, as they are mentioned throughout the book, but still lots of great surprises along the way.

This book has mixed reviews, but I really enjoyed it! It was well thought and I didn't see it all coming towards the end! This was a long time executed plan over six years. I really enjoyed the whole chase! It was great and fast read!
