Started reading MARIPOSA before dinner last night, and then before our weekly HEROES gathering,and after I drove one of the guests home. Got 60-80 pages in before having to go to sleep.
CITY definitely amped your writing style,as this novel doesn't read with the same thriller style as it's prequel, yet remains a page turner.
So far, the style feels like a fusion of that from QUEEN OF ANGELS, CITY, and QUANTICO.
And you are doing a very good job of making that Bridge between Quantico and Queen of Angels with this one...glad I went back re-read that one, and the other novels in the sequence.
Though I do not think a Plain Vanilla first time reader really needs to be conversant with any of those novels to enjoy this one, as there are enough "if things continue" hooks so far in the text to grab.
I had stayed away from ANY spoilers about Mariposa on your site or on the NET, though I should have guessed from title how Mariposa would be used within this novel.
I'd say more, but I have a broken piece of software to go fix.
