I did finish Rescue today, and I remained underwhelmed throughout. I rarely give up on a book so I stuck it out, in part, waiting for the Shreve whammy. A whammy came, but it was predictable--not one that rocks your gut. Not only that, I missed the almost elegiac language of earlier books. If this had been my first Shreve novel, there might not have been a second. Overall, disappointing--only because I expect better from this author.
