    Not really my type of book

    This was pretty good for a spy thriller. It is not my favorite genre. I think it is something the male sector will prefer. It was very written and edited. The details of the areas in which the book is set were very nicely done. The plot was 95% realistic. The characters were likable and believable, even though a little dense at times. It took me a little longer to read this book as it did not really hold my interest. For the adylt reader, more male orientated then female.

    Detective Frost, a man with checkered past, is assigned to a murder case of a former marine. The case leads to other murders and stolen artifacts from Iraq. Throw in corrupt police, politicians and a wealthy man and you have a very enjoyable story.

    Decent mystery

    Decent mystery, but some obvious clues that were hard to belive that a seasoned detective would miss.

    waste of time

    The story is a weak excuse for a book, and also seems to be a cover for his political agenda--The Hershey Highway, apparently...
