A disappointment, in several ways:
First, from a literary standpoint, the language is flat, bland, unpolished. In a novel of this genre, that may be tolerable (even Grisham and Forsyth are not masters of prose) but ...
Secondly, much of the story is too far-fetched and the depiction of all the main characters amounts to little more than archetypes -- e.g. the main protagonist Harrison being a former top level security agent who succumbed to drug and alcohol problems and had to leave the service, saw his marriage fall apart ... etc.; the outrageously super-wealthy elite, wallowing in extreme luxury and single-mindedly pursuing even greater wealth with total disregard for the environment, society and the rest of humanity. And so it goes.
Finally, the exploits of the teenage triplets, subduing an armed, trained terrorist with paint guns; clichés such a cliff-hanging rescues, fights reminiscent of "Terminator" movies; enough already!
The central concept of the book had real possibilities; dialing it back (a lot) and investing some effort in character development might have produced a much better result.
