    Fun Thriller for an Afternoon Read

    This book is a sequel, though you don't need to have read the first to figure it out. The hero, a Vietnam vet who has been on the run, decides to go back and clean up the mess he left in L.A. with the help of an attractive bounty hunter. From there, he discovers multiple crimes and frameups which leave him desperately trying to clear his name.

    The book is a potboiler, but with surprisingly few spots of slop. The pace is relatively quick, slowed by some maudlin romance here and there, and the details are well chosen with an air of authenticity. The author fails to keep the plot twists too quiet, and reveals clues in chunks instead of well spread out, but overall, this was a fun read for those who enjoy the "talented vet" of, say, David Morrell, or early Ludlum (without Ludlum's politics).

    Some violence, some sex, lots of driving.

    Needs an editor

    I only read about 45 pages of the sample before deciding not to download the entire book, so maybe it improved later, but it didn't look like it was going to.

    The characters are fairly solid and the plot moves along, so that was good. However the style kept sliding around between action thriller and romance novel ("any girl would love to run her fingers through his curly black hair"???) Spelling and grammatical errors were really jarring (an ominous businessman called a "trucking magnet.") And the characters were introduced without a lot of clarification of relationships.

    None of these are problems that a good editor wouldn't have helped with. Sorry. I couldn't take any more.

    Excellent thriller

    149 pages long and a whole lot of suspense and mystery. Brad is a very believable character and brings it out very well. I highly recommend this book if you like thrillers. The romantic part of the story could have been brought out a little more, again very real. Must read.

    I enjoyed it!

    A good read. I appreciated that there was not a lot of crude-ness used to tell the story, even though the story was fairly gritty. I'm going to look for more by this author.

    would not recommend

    Not sure if I read the rough draft. Very hard to follow. Started to hilight misspelled words, but just wanted to finish the read. Story line was good but wouldn't recommend it.

    Selected recommend

    This was a good story, knew the culprit the first time he was introduced. The why's and wherefore's is what kept the pages turning. Decent character development, and there really weren't any dead spots. All in all it was a good read. I would recommend this to those who want something light and not too intense. A good rainy Sunday book. I will check out more from this author he did good.

    Wrong book picture

    Here's another one that does not show the picture for the name of the book or author. It should be Free to Die by Bob McElwain not Forest Song Cookbook by Vila SpiderHawk, wonder what the real picture is suppose to be? Maybe I'd like to read this one but afraid to purchase because I really don't want a cookbook right now.

    Page turner

    I really enjoyed this book. It had all the right intrigue with a little bit of romance brought in. I was very pleased that the romantic aspect of this book did not draw center stage and that it was addressed very tactfully. I hate when my murder mystery reads all of a sudden become my grandmother's dime store novels. I highly recommend this book to those who love action & suspense.

    Good read

    It has a nice story line. I wondered about it being a sequel also. If it is, it's easy enough to follow without reading the first book. Enjoy.
