Review 4: Snyder – The China Connection

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting novel by a great new writer. May 21, 2003. By: George Snyder (Baltimore, MD., a retired State Police Investigator.) – See all my reviews
This review is from: The China Connection (Paperback)

I liked this novel because it is a good read. The pace is fast, the transitions well-done, and the story exciting.

Sacco’s descriptions of places in the book are interesting. I felt like I was there with the characters on their travels. His character development is excellent. The protagonist, Matt Dawson is a complex person, dealing with issues from his past while resolutely moving ahead with his mission; to find Johnny Chou and return him to the U.S. to testify before a Congressional Investigative Committee. The minor characters are developed just enough to give weight and credence to the major ones.

I heartily recommend this political thriller to anyone looking for a relaxing and informative novel, and look forward to Sacco’s next book, if there is to be one.
