I really enjoyed this book. I read many of Lincoln Child's books, but I missed this early one. It was a great summer read, and I never would have read it if it wasn't on the summer reading challenge list.
The setting is a near future "entertainment park" similar to Disney. The book was written in 2002 so now 2017, it is the near future.
The central characters are the good guys- widowed, AI scientist, his daughter, former girl friend, her new boyfriend, a vacationing mercenary. The bad guys are group of thieving terrorists.
The good guys triumph! (But they always do in a Child's book) But the setting, science, back story about the park, relatable characters and themes make it a good story.
