    1. Detective George Hastings has a case he doesn't want, and then when he's dismissed from the case, he wants to continue it. Why is he so interested in Senator Preston and his fear of possibly being attacked or killed by a mysterious man?John Reese is suddenly released from jail by two goons who want to kill him, but John escapes. He has one goal, to go after the guy who wrongly put him in prison in the first place. Will he accomplish his goal?I enjoy this series that takes place in St. Louis and [...]

    2. To be honest, I picked this book because of the front picture - the St. Louis Arch. Having lived in St. Louis for 10 years, I thought it’d be fun to read a story in which I recognized landmarks, etc.The opening chapter takes place as a hunting trip in southwest Missouri in the Ozarks, near Branson - another very familiar area.After a couple of chapters, I began to wonder if I would really like the book as I noticed what appeared to be typos - but I realized that disjointed sentences seemed to [...]

    3. Lieutenant Hastings and his team are the best at their job. That is why their next job is to baby sit Senator Alan Preston. Seriously though! This is exactly what Lt. Hastings is thinking. He doesn’t have time to watch over Senator Preston, when murder doesn’t stop. Unfortunately, Lt. Hastings has no choice in the matter. It seems that a John Reese, who was a former CIA agent and a trained sniper who supposedly betrayed his country has broken out of prison. When Senator Preston was a US Dist [...]

    5. I picked up this book at random since I needed something to read, yes I finally caught up on all of the current releases of my favorite authors. This "thriller" is a combination police/political thriller. The suspense kept me interested and made for a fast read. The political aspect provided some humor since I am a political junkie. Overall a quick escape read. The book could have used a little more editing. I would recommend this author.

    6. Fast paced book. You never know who will make it alive at the end of the book. Are people right or wrong? Can some one finally change and see the light, while somebody really gets what they deserve?

    7. Read this book for one of my reading challenges. Recommended by my Aunt Donna. Liked the storyline and ending. Thought it was cool to see all the St. Louis references since I'm from the St. Louis area. Made it easy to imagine right where they were. A good read.

    8. A thriller. Not as predictable as some, but this is easy/vacation reading for me (when I'm back in school, I need those books in my diet as well).
