Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Continuation of the Major Mark Isen series, in which he investigates the mysterious death of a soldier at Fort Bragg. (Dec.)
Library Journal
Maj. Mark Isen spent much time fighting in international combat situations in Ruggero's three previous novels (most recently, Firefall, LJ 4/15/94). No such grand-scale heroics await him here, however, as he departs from his dreaded Pentagon desk job to investigate the apparent suicide of his former mentor's son. The young soldier shot himself outside a strip joint near Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and Isen must deal with plenty of stonewalling as he seeks information from naked dancers and tight-lipped military brass. Suspicious characters abound, and there's ample sex and violence for spicy effect. Readers will be engrossed by the disparate milieus in this well-crafted escapist fare. For popular collections.-Will Hepfer, SUNY at Buffalo Libs.
