I really enjoyed this book. Fast pace and kept my attention.

Stuck with it just to see if it went anywhere interesting, but started skimming paragraphs in the final chapters just to be done. Not a single character I could empathize with, and the two main characters were ultimately unlikeable. Was actually glad when it was finally over.

Hardly his best work. Too many coincidences and the final fight scene improbable and too predictable.

Nola is NOT Lisbeth Salander. three quarters through and there is nothing inside like advertised on the back of the dust cover. I'll finish it but it's not even close to Meltzer's Culper series books.

Captivating. Have not been so invested in reading a book for at least 4 years now.

Meltzer seems to be a wizard at wrapping a contemporary conspiracy in a new take on history, & he did it again in The Escape Artist!

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings This book takes place very near my house. In Dover, DE there is a place where the fallen go for them to get special treatment before their families bury them. "Zig" is known to be one of the best and can put someone back together so their family can give them the burial they wish. When a body comes in with a name he recognizes this one hits close to home and he must make sure she is taken care of completely. But things aren't as they seem and he is swept up into government lies, secrets and some drama from the past.

Yet another masterful work from Meltzer filled with intrigue, thrills and all ranges of emotion. Always that final twist when the whudunnit is revealed! Can't wait for the next one.

A little winding but the end was not predictable which is good.

Meltzer is better than this! Not sure if I know what it was about, nor do I want to know. Total waste of my time.

I found this novel to be very disappointing given it's positive hype. To buy into the plot requires a total abandonment of rational thought. I found neither the plot nor the characters to be particularly interesting.
