This book is a diamond in the rough. The plot, which might sound implausible, is better than you might think from the description. Most thrillers are unrealistic in some ways - "The Concrete Rocket" isn't anymore than most. If terrorists can hijack a plane and fly it into the World Trade Center, this doesn't seem so farfetched.

Mystery books always get my attention. That is why I quickly began reading Philip E. Hickey’s The Concrete Rocket.

Recommends it for: Mystery fans
Negatives: Too much detail.

Positives: Good character development. A decent plot. A likable hero (in spite of being a lawyer).

I found myself becoming Guss Foxxe (the main character) and experienced his trials and triumphs.

Note: I work for the publisher, but I can say anything I want without getting fired (except sass the boss). So, take it for what it's worth.
