This book left me with an immense sense of wasted potential, because the premise is great, but the execution is uneven. The narration shifted between character's different points of view with disorienting suddenness. Passages of great excitement and building tension were undermined by strange plot shifts in which important events happen "off camera" with no explanation. The end of the story, with its confrontation between the characters and Roul Goullet that was built up to for the entire book, ends up being anti-climactic in the extreme. All I can think upon finishing the book is "What a shame."
