Tom Clancy has a new leading man. Max Moore is a Navy Seal in the CIA taking a big bite from the drug and terrorist problems of the world. Fast paced even for 750 pages. It is hard to put aside. Strong on both current events and fears. Lots of action.
This is a typical Clive Cussler story. If you like Cussler you'll like this. A minimal plot and a story line not too realistic but entertaining for an evening or two.
This tells the clearest and most detailed history of the housing bubble yet. Names are named, blame is placed. A must read and it makes your blood boil at what was done to our country with only a wrist slap to the guilty.
Lee Child grabs your attention quicker than any other author I have read. Jack Reacher, still weak from his escape from the old missile silo in "61 Hours" immediately gets involved in another good samaritan deed. It is hard to put down once you've read the first few pages.
It is hard for me to wrtie a negative review of any book by Michael Connelly since I've been a fan since "The Poet". This is very much up to the expected standard with the bonus of the Lincoln lawyer included. The book grabs the reader less than halfway through and holds on until the surprise ending and an anti-climax that could be a strong hint for the next Connelly book.
