Everyone Anton Waker grew up with is corrupt. His parents deal in stolen goods and his first career is a partnership venture with his cousin Aria selling forged passports and social security cards to illegal aliens. Anton longs for a less questionable way of living in the world and by his late twenties has reinvented himself as a successful middle manager. Then a routine security check suggests that things are not quite what they appear. And Aria begins blackmailing him to do one last job for her. But the seemingly simple job proves to have profound and unexpected repercussions. As Anton's carefully constructed life begins to disintegrate around him, he's forced to choose between loyalty to his family and his desires for a different kind of life. When everyone is willing to use someone else to escape the past, it is up to Anton, on the island of Ischia, to face the ghosts that travel close behind him.

It was a bit boring, which seems such a generic thing to say about a book, so I shall try to expand. It should have been more intriguing really, there is a bit of a mystery to the characters. Who they are, what they do, why they do it. Somehow there is no spark though, no life so to speak, the characters are 2D representations of something that might possibly have been interesting, if fleshed out more. These characters seem to live their lives by mistake, they float along and do their thing without any thought or purpose, it was very, very annoying.
The ambiguous ending was also quite disappointing, maybe this is because the story was partially thriller and/or mystery style and I'm used to have a conclusion to this style of book but this one didn't work out at all.
I think that as this is my third book by this author, and none of them have been rated very highly, I can safely say that I won't be reading any more.
