really liked it
Read from April 21 to 23, 2012

A couple of threads going in this one. A female Secret service agent guarding the President overhears something that troubles her and she begins an off the books investigation. Another ex SS ex Seal and ex government trouble shooter is hired to kidnap an terrorist held by the Afghan government in order to exchange him for a Doctor who was captured by the Taliban. The Doctor’s mother has tons of money and influence and also something on the President who is unpopular with the Secret service agents and the CIA because of some wholesale house cleaning to diversify the personnel on both agencies even though those let go had much more experience and knowledge. The story switches between the agents investigation of the President and the Seal’s progress in Afghanistan. It’s a Pretty fast pace and a decent read. Found this new hardback at the grocery store sale bin for $6.
