Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Imbra is a fascinating character, and figuring out his motivations is a big part of the fun of this story.

Con: It’s not clear why Paloma (ironically, “dove” in Spanish) keeps letting Imbra manipulate him.

At the end, it’s not clear what Imbra was trying to accomplish.
