Read from April 03 to 16, 2010

John Hart knows his way around a suspense/thriller. The follow-up to his Edgar winning Down River shines with robust characters and seemingly endless twists and turns. Hart weaves numerous story threads with a deft hand, never letting the characters falter or the plot stray into the improbable.

One note: read the book. The audio presentation, at best, is annoying as the reader drifts into over-enunciation of words and stilted delivery, pronouncing every "the" with a long "e", "a" as a long "a" and "again" as "a-GAIN". It's a testament to Hart's craftsmanship that the material shines through nonetheless.
