The Blade Itself by Marcus Sakey
Read this 4 months ago, and just got around to writing my thoughts about it now. Or should I say, my lack of thoughts. I honestly do not remember much of the plot or characters when I looked at the title. I read the description, and it brought back a bit of memory. So it was a fast thriller / mystery while it lasted - at least I finished it and wanted to find out what happened, though I did make a note that it was a bit predictable, without many twists or turns. It was a debut novel.
I picked this one up after hearing good things about the author's latest book, The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes. I actually won a copy of Two Deaths, and will give it a try since the author may have improved in the past 4 years.
I did like this quote: "That a man was measured by the way he acted, not what he had." (p290)
2 / 5 .
