The new Ed Rogan mystery places the Brooks Brothers sleuth in the steamy jungle of El Salvador to track down the kidnappers of a local diplomat. The action, attitude and humor found in "A Murder Too Personal," Rogan's last outing, is all there with extra relish. The characters, locales, and action ring true and obviously the author, whose bio lists extensive travel, is drawing from real experience and actual observations. There is a certain exotic pleasure in reading this page-turner to which the description "escapist" would not be disparaging. There's the snappy dialog you'd expect in the crime fiction genre, plus a well deserved guffaw earned for a shooting scene set in a lingerie shop. With "A Murder Too Personal" I was a Gerald J. Davis supporter, but with "Jungle of Glass" I'm a G-D fan. There seems to be an entire subculture of writers out there and if you stick to only the large publishing houses there is a lot you'll be missing. Read on.
