I usually love Margolin's books,read everyone except this one. Did not like the main character at all. Book was just boring from the start.

Margolin has fallen behind the latest generation of writers in this genre.

Charles Marsh is a small time crook. He's out of jail and having an affair with Sally Pope. She is the wife of a U.S. Congressman. Someone sends revealing photos of Sally and Charles to the Congressman, there is a confrontation and shots are fired from a crowd, the Congressman is dead. Sally is being tried for murder and Charlie is the co-defendent. However with his criminal background, Charlie thinks it's best to skip town so he goes to an African nation called Batanga that has no treaty for extradition with U.S. Charlie stays there for 12 years and his old self comes to his downfall again. He's having an affair with the dictator's wife and when he finds out, he has his wife killed and Charlie barely escapes. At this point the story catches its breath and we learn of Charlie's time in prison. He saved the warden's life when the warden was being attacked by a knife wielding inmate. Then when he's released, Charlie writes a best selling book about his time in prisio and his supposidly religious conversion. He makes money by giving seminars around the country on how to find peace in a person's life. When Charlie returns to stand trial he hires Amanda Jeffe to defend him. Amanda is an excellent character who has appeared in two other Margolin works such as "Proof Positive." As Amanda and her private eye build evidence for Charlie, we learn the events leading to the Congressman's shooting and the attempted framing of Sally. However, Amanda's father did a masterful job on her defense and charges were dropped. Now that it's 12 years later when Charlie turns himself in, something happens to Sally Pope. There are a number of people after Charlie and Margolin provides good action, steady drama and interesting characters to read. Well worth the effort. A perfect book to bring on your summer vacation.

Quick and easy reading with a ittle stretch of reader imagination to hold it all together. Won't keep you up all night but quite possibly past your bedtime. Try it!

I was quite surprise to have the author bash capitalsm in the first few chapters of his book and then he went on to remind all readers that America was a place full of evil, money hungry people. No where in his book does it acknowledge hard work by millions of Americans who get up at 5:30 in th morning and head to jobs so that they can care for their families and be one step above what their parents were able to achieve.I immedatiely went to the last few chapters of the book to see the dictator got what was coming to him in the end but other than that, I found the book very boring.
