Thoroughly enjoyed this book. As usual in a David Lindsey book it keeps you engrossed. I don't understand why he has never had the success of authors like Harlan Cobben; his thrillers are just as good, if not better.

An interesting fast paced plot with disturbing implications. The characters seemed real and their interactions came across as genuine. A satisfiying ending that was neither too blunt or too drawn out.

i mentioned i read this author years ago, this book was much better than animosity. i may re-read mercy and a cold something or other. he has a talent with adjectives. the first ones i read years ago actually made me feel like i was in houston, even though i'd only been to the airport. again, he's an adjective pro. and i don't normally read mystery/intrigue. but i very much enjoyed this book and will see if he has more after this publis date of 2003.

Very interesting premise, how does one proceed when asked to do something illegal that no one will ever know about, but that has severe consequences for your reputation and for the people closest to you. Luckily, the main character, Titus Cain, happens to remember someone who can help him out of his crazy predicament. There are some very gruesome killings and things get pretty intense for the characters as they deal with Luquin.

New twist for me on international intrigue. And kidnapping - Titus was not kinapped in the obvious way, but held for a huge ransom. He then went against all advice and hired an "underground agency" to help him.

The is a suspenseful, can't put down read. I have read other David Lindsey books, all of which are well written and surprising, this one is by back the most intriguing. I highly recommend to anyone that likes twists and turns in the suspense novels they read.

Very much a page turner. I hope that the author has a very vivid imagination and this sort of thing is not really hugely prevalent in today's world.

I wasn't sure I would finish this book after 50 pages. After that, I could not put it down. Great read.

Loved that it was set in Austin. Totally believable that this type of thing could happen. Didn't like the wife. She is late to the party but still wants to run the show.

Invigorating, exciting, fast-paced, totally unbelievable.
