Puzzling Mystery with Retired Military working two jobs, Homeland Security position (on call) attached to Boulder Colorado Police Department as an assigned Fed to help in Homicide investigations. Paired with a local experienced detective who knows investigation but in the small town Police Force, doesn't encounter death in day to day job. I enjoyed the technical detail about military life as an assassin (i.e. setting up weapons, sitting awaiting a shot, judging whether to shoot or not). Also enj...more
CHASING THE GHOST is very different type of fiction book then what Bob Mayer has written in the past. I really enjoyed reading it and I definitely would like to see more stories involving Horace Chase.

Not to be too critical or anything, but this is the 1st Bob Mayer book (out of 12 or so that I have read so far) that I am not crazy about. This is a 3-star review instead of my usual 4 or 5-star review of his books. It was labeled a Black Ops book (Green Beret) but it was really a detective/police story with very loose ties to Black Ops. The main character Horace Chase, was kinda boring and messed up....and he really did not do much except shoot one guy near the end of the book.. No spoilers as...more

A first time read for me from Bob Mayer. Very good action packed thriller. Horace Chase is a good character,well developed with additional baggage. A likable fellow. Mayer is ex-military / Special Forces, so he adds a very believable side to his character. Lots of good twists and turns that keep you reading along. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a thrill-ride.

Chasing the Ghost is a tight,fast moving action/mystery...just the kind of story Mayer does best. I read it in two nights because I couldn't put it down.

This story keep me in suspense until near the end. Everything wrapped up nicely. Always like it when the good guys wins and justice served.

1.5 stars. Read the start (hey, it was cheap, and the blurb read well), and just couldn't get into it.
DJ Wilson
Ending was good, but the book didn't move to fluidly to get there, had to force myself to read it at times
