Overview

After being unemployed for nearly two years, Nathan Parker is finally hired as an insurance fraud investigator in Montana. While in New York, he is called back to Montana to investigate the death of a client, an eminent scientist. The police consider the death a hit-and-run accident. But there are too many coincidences for Nathan to feel comfortable with the ruling of accidental death.

His findings are dismissed by the police. And because of his checkered past, they chose to ignore him. Undaunted, Nathan presses the investigation forward alone. Witnesses start dying. Suicide. Drug overdose. A trail of bodies across Montana. The trail has gone cold.

But Nathan finds a clue, a thin thread of evidence that leads him to the West Coast. He teams up with an unlikely partner, who helps unravel the mystery as they dig deep into the tangled web of the people they are following. They discover an improbable biotechnology conspiracy that affects the health of the entire nation.

He and his new partner are drawn into the tangled web and are trapped. They are left with no choice but to fight to survive in the streets of San Francisco.

Author's first book, Death Comes in the Morning, was a good read, but this one repeated the same things over and over like he was just trying to fill pages. Would have been a better book if he had pared it down to a couple hundred pages.

So many things irritated me about him! I kinda just wish he would have just done his job. Tired of hearing about the bad economy. If he REALLY wanted to be a cop, some police force had to be hiring somewhere. Maybe he wasn't such a great cop and that's why he was let go. Didn't like the dirty clothes... doesn't an insurance investigator have to dress appropriately? Hopefully the 3rd book is better.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as his others. All the action came at once, in the end.

This 680 page book is the second in a series. So far there are three books. This one was better edited then the first. There was also some sexual situations in this one and some cursing. There is quite a bit of murder, mayham and some gore. I was kept guessing about whodunit for a long time. While I have enjoyed both novels, I got tired of the main character refering to himself as an ex cop and using this as his main identifier and as an excuse for most of the woes in his life. He needs to get over no longer being a cop. I also did not like his current girlfriend accusing him of scolding her when he voiced his concern over her safety. This became monotonous. Overall it was a pretty good read. I am not sure I would have purchased the third book in the series, if I had waited until after I had read this one. I am hoping number three is better. I hate it when characters in a book whine. It is worse if they are the heros or heroines. This book is not a chick lit book. It is as much a man's book as a woman's. For readers 18 and up. AD

Was a page turner. First you thought one person was the killer, then it goes in a whole different direction you were not expecting. Going to start book 3 in the series tonight. I always enjoy finding good authors that write good series. You want to know more about the characters and what happens next for them. Don Bissett is turning out to be a great author. I hope he does more.

Nathan finds himself surrounded by dead bodies again! Everywhere he goes someone turns up dead! He is having a hard time holding on to a woman because of it. This book was pretty exciting to the end. I already purchased book 3!
