It's a new day in America--but old contracts must still be paid.

Jack McEnroe is a construction worker with an unusual job: building a prison for terrorists. Like his neighbors in Red Rock, Wyoming, Jack isn't particularly concerned about politics. In a depressed rural economy, he's just grateful to have a job.

Jack's boss, Dave Fetters, is grateful, too: he has a no-bid, co

I liked this book right up to the end. The ending was disappointing. It seemed once again that this author, like many others, ran out of steam before the book was finished and did not know how to bring all the story lines to a close. I won't say anything to spoil the story but really expected to see some kick-ass justice to happen at the end. What did happen did not satisfy MY sense of justice.

Characters were very well developed, you hated the bad guys and believed the good guys were doing their

The genre of this book is hard to classify. It starts off as sort of a literary vein, with a lot exploration of Jack McEnroe, the main character, and others in his life. The writing here is eloquent, and the setting and the people of this small town really come to life.

The mystery/thriller portion of the story takes awhile to start, and that is where I had some troubles. Kyla, Jack’s ex-wife, discovers the billing fraud--and this discovery and attempted cover-up is the impetus for the entire act

The Price of Liberty came with one surprise after another. Even though it's a suspense novel it is filled with some serious bouts of humor that I was not expecting but thoroughly enjoyed. I often looked forward to getting back to it because it was so entertaining and fast paced. I loved the way Graff tied up all the loose ends with irony, wit and a few unexpected events. He also did an excellent job of getting in each characters head, you never had to wonder which POV the story was being told fr ...more

I had planned to rate this book 4 stars, but then got to the ending....bleh.
Quoting Kathy from GA's review-

Disappointing book. Started out with a very interesting plot- characters were well-rounded- complicated, like real life is- and set in Wyoming which is one of my favorite places in the US.
But the author ruined it for me by inserting too much of his opinion and making the book political- made it hard for me to enjoy the story b/c of his dismissal of the other viewpoint through shallow arguments.
I don't like it when I feel the author pushing their agenda on the reader.
Just my opinion of course.

A construction worker and his wife get involved in a life threatening adventure when a fraud is discovered.

I found this book to be a real page turner, with a series of believably weird / stupid characters and events that spun out of control.

Great read, suspenseful with a wry sense of humor. A splendid sense of place and character amid smooth transitions from one point-of-view to the next. The ending's a little too shoot-em-up for me, but that's just me. Definitely recommended.

Book abour a rugged construction worker who is helping build a prison for terrorists in the middle of nowhere. Plenty of action & underhanded shenannigans, as well as government-type snafus.

Lots of action and even humour at times. I though it should have been called "The Price of Justice". Great sense of place (in Wyoming) and time with well developed characters
