Hank Bonner is a cop in Sokanan, a small town in the Hudson Valley. He's two weeks from retiring so he can care for his niece, nephew and the family apple farm. His sister and her husband died in a tragic incident that Hank feels he should have been able to prevent. Alex Baker is a wealthy businesswoman negotiating a joint Russian and American venture which will bring prosperity back to Sokanan. When a man is murdered and Hank begins to investigate, the trail leads him to Alex. Alex has her own agenda which involves murder, betrayal, deceit and revenge and which puts everyone close to her in danger. The only thing I didn¿t care for was Alex using her connections with town officials to stop Hank from doing his job. I realize she was trying to keep him from getting hurt. However, by giving him insufficient information she ended up putting everyone is a dangerous position. This was a good book with a fast moving plot and interesting, well-developed characters. I would definitely recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
