Thoroughly Entertaining. Dave Edlund has done a fabulous job with this very interesting and well put together story. The plot is elaborate and suspenseful, with a diverse range of characters. I quite enjoyed that part of the story is based in 1967, and the way a little bit of history has been incorporated into the novel. Even though this book is part of a series, you could easily read it as a stand-alone book. Peter Savage had no idea what he was getting himself into, when he started poking around in a recent murder investigation. After all it was the police that started it all by coming to him, and inquiring how two murder victims had bullets in them, that only his company made. Peter wasn’t the sort of person that could sit back and let the police conduct their investigation without getting involved himself. Initially he had no idea on the hornets’ nest he was poking his nose into, although he should have guessed when his friend Gary found Top Secret Government documents on one of the murder victims emails. With Israel being involved, along with a top level US Government official, Peter is going to need to go into hiding just to stay alive. He’s certainly going to need to rely on his friends for help, in finding out why this secret documents are so important. I think everyone will enjoy this book, it really is that good.
