    Lame & boring....

    I have enjoyed all of the Lou Boldt series and look forward to the next in the series.
    However, the Walt Fleming series is so awful, it's hard to believe that the same author is responsible for both.
    I won't waste my time with a synopsis of the story line, it's too banal.
    As to the statement about the previous reviews having been written before the publication of the book: That Harstan person LOVES every single book he/she reads.... some of them are truly awful... save yourself the time and totally ignore all of those reviews... they are lies.
    Don't waste your time with this book...

    Disappointment

    With the two positive reviews being published here even before the book was released, I wonder what my fellow readers will think of Pearson's latest, In Harm's Way. For me it reads like a book directed to high-schoolers, with simple prose and plotlines designed not to confuse. Publisher's Weekly describes the book as "lame" and I have to agree. It just did not excite me, and the romance with Fiona was just hard to believe.

    I Also Recommend:

    Sheriff Walt Fleming returns in another shock filled adventure in picturesque Sun Valley Idaho.

    Fresh from saving the life of a young girl Walt's crime scene photographer and recent romantic interest Fiona Krenshaw tries unsuccessfully to stay out of the camera's view finder, Walt mistaking this for modesty thinks little of it until it's apparent that there's something insidious going on. Now he has more crimes to solve than you can shake a stick at, still at war over his ex-wife's antics including her involvement with his star deputy and trying to raise his twin pre-teen daughters so the last thing he needs is a hot shot homicide dick from Seattle horning in on his territory too, but that's exactly what he's got.
    There are many things that stand out about the brilliance of Ridley Pearson he's a master storyteller as evidenced by my refusal to put down this latest thriller and his character development as evidenced by his many, many fans of both his series and his stand a lone novels. Well fans of his Lou Bolt and Walt Fleming series have something extra to love about in "In Harm's Way" both Lou and Walt are in the house, solving crimes and keeping the streets safer for their residents. Walt as the main protagonist is brilliant as a law officer so it's especially nice to see him bumbling around like a teenager with his first crush when you bring in the heroine in this case a feisty, independent and yet very vulnerable Fiona who has a slew of secrets of her own. The plot is always interesting as you mix the have and have not's of Sun Valley while the dialogue is not what you might expect of a crime drama and further evidence of Mr. Pearson's excellent writing ability because he can ably write a suspenseful, chilling, edge of your seat thriller without dropping the "f" bomb, or for that fact other crude and offensive language, not that I'm opposed to such language, but it is nice to have a refrain from it once in a while. His characters are amazing in their complexity from the one liner all the way to the star of the novel.
    This is one read you must not miss, believe me you will be sorry if you do. It will be an instant best seller. It reads well on it's own but I would strongly suggest starting the series from the beginning to get the full picture.

    an excellent thriller

    Fiona Kenshaw rescues a small child from drowning in the river. She asks one thing from the man she is interested in; keep her face out of the local paper, the Mountain Express. Sun Valley Sheriff Wall Fleming is also interested in Fiona, but was burned by his wife who was cheating on him with his deputy. The paper's editor ignores the pleas the sheriff by running the story with her photo. This leads to Fiona to withdraw deep into her shell.

    When the corpse of former football player and ex convict Martel Gale is found, Sergeant Lou Boldt of Seattle thinks there is a link between the deceased, his former agent residing in Sun Valley Vince Wynn and a former sport team owner and entrepreneur Marty Boatwright and the dead courtesan Caroline Vetta. Boldt is working the Vetta case and Martel's death enables Boldt to question Wynn and Boatwright. After Lou and Walt interview the men, both conclude one of them is guilty of homicide, but lack proof. Walt seeks evidence, but discovers a tie to Fiona that leads him to wonder if she is involved with the murders.

    The latest "Killer" Walt Fleming police procedural (see Killer Summer and Killer View) is an excellent thriller as he works effectively with Ridley Pearson's other top cop Lou Boldt (from the Boldt and Matthews series). Fiona's relationships with Walt (sweet and just beginning), and with her ward Kira (coping with a rape as the youngster knows the truth about the guardian) enhances the entertaining whodunit. There is plenty of action, but it is the interaction between the key cast members that makes this a superb mystery.
