Solely My Opinion
After reading 641 pages, it was rather frustrating to know that the drug-trafficker was almost in the hands of the detectives only to let him escape with his two young daughters on a private jet. In real life, our cops must have experienced this kind of frustration where the criminal is about to be caught, with enough evidence to throw the criminal in prison, but the only thing that obstructs the victory is knowing the whereabout of the criminal, or the criminal just slipped away like how some criminals managed to squeeze themselves through the small toilet window, swinging themselves over the fence and disappear into the horizon.
