In a world of five-star reviews this book stands out. It details the hunt for Ed Wilson, a rogue CIA agent with a penchant for B.S. and a taste for high living and money.

Manhunt sat on my bookshelves for ages and a year. I needed to get it off, so I read it. Should have read it sooner, because I couldn't put it down.

And got away with it?!" Almost.
An interesting read about quite a character
