    She is mentioned- very little though and there's ton of politics - I personally thought that too much politics and that the pace needs to pick up.

    Yes- it's neat. Catledgestone doesn't need to be a suspected murderer. It's very plausible that Richard's sister was very unhappy with him, becuase he was a total jerk. Plus that he kept getting her pregnant- which could be quite lethal- she died at childbirth.

    I feel, much like Cynthia, that Gina’s creator should contribute to the conflict. Her main goal, after all, is to find him. She probably looks at him like her father (or mother). How about she finds her creator, who is the leader of a gang that is opposed to Snapper’s. If Snapper is Gina’s...

    I assume this is a dual POV . You're introducing us to your heroine in ch1 , to your hero in ch. 2 and they meet in ch 3. So it seems fine to me. The book I gave as an example (A heart of Blood and Ashes) is a dual POV book, but the first few chapters are all told from Maddek's POV . The...

    Maybe Richard had always had a secret crush on Anne. He watched her marry and have someone else's children and he can't bear to see it happen again- which is why he's helping her. All he needs to figure out is how to move from the friend's zone to be her lover. Does that make sense?

    Ayala is Jewish - but as you've pointed out John's goal to marry a Jewish bride isn't really a goal but a general wish. Plus, if the woman is okay he won't get censured for his choice- so I'm taking this off his goal list. Thank you for your comments- they do help clear matters up.
