I made it to page 136, but only because I was waiting for my car to be serviced and had finished my other book. It's unfortunate because the basic plot was interesting. But the story rambled on with a lot of characters but no real character development, and no cohesion. I'll also admit I'm tired of the alternating, two-time period plots. I've read so many; it's a device that's become a cliché. For me, this just didn't work at all.
