When as I began reading this novel, I was appalled by how murderous Robert Cleghorn was. As I finished the book and thought about it for awhile, I am now more appalled by how much of a victim Robert was.

Robert is the youngest of two siblings. He decided to join the military and was transferred overseas for his tours. He was injured during one of his tours and was hospitalized. When he was better, a friend of his coerced Robert into joining the CIA. Robert was nearly killed while working for the

The Tourist by Jack Everett and David Coles took me by surprise. This is the story of a British Detective, Stewart White, and an American tourist who has a horrific past based on intensive military training, drugs and past injuries.

Robert Cleghorn goes in search of his brother's wife in England. Unfortunately he has some mental and physical problems, and he's been trained to kill--which he does while trying to find Stephanie.

Stewart White must find the American before he kills again, not an easy

Wonderful thriller that features British detective Stewart White who is pursuing American Robert Cleghorn. Robert has assumed his dead brother Alan's identity after doing away with him. Robert sets off to Britain in pursuit of his sister-in-law, Stephanie. Robert Cleghorn has had a past that has left him brain damaged and dangerous. He was in the Special Forces and the CIA so he has been trained to hunt and kill.

This isn't my usual type of read...a little bit more descriptive of gore than my usu
