Recommended for suspense fans! I received a copy of the eBook to review from Hipso Media. The story links a death on a college campus to complicated money laundering, international terrorism, and political intrigue in Washington DC. That is a lot of ground to cover, but Bograd manages to keep it all pretty simple and keep you interested as the plot unfolds. Or rather than unfolding, the plot tangles into a knotted web of intrigue.

I enjoyed the main part of the first half being set in Colorado. I

"The Enemy' is the first I've read of Larry Bograd's books. An unusual partnership is formed between a daughter and her father as they endeavour to solve the mystery behind the suspected murder of a good friend. The novel took me from the disrupted lives of a normal everyday family and into the halls of the White House, banks, terrorist activity and cyberspace. I enjoyed this book and couldn't wait to finish it, although I do admit to being a bit confused with the characters initially. I'm quick

I would like to thank the publisher, Hipso Media, for providing me with this free review copy. It was touted as a book in the vein of Lee Child, et al.

There was a great deal of politicking, which is not my thing. Unfortunately, I skipped over parts of th

I received this book free in return for my honest review. I am sorry to say that it was quite frankly annoying. The story was touted to be for Lee Child fans. Umm. No. Lee Child books are action. This book was ...political. There was a death of a character we barely knew. Then some girl leaves law school to investigate the death while her father helps. He has got to be the most over-worked person on the planet. There were many instances of long quotes (Shakespeare! John Adams!) which all of the ...more

I received a copy of this e-book for review, from Hipso Media.

I enjoyed the chance to read this book.

As a frequent reader of thrillers and mysteries, I like the fact this books main setting was Denver not LA or New York. I thought that I would like to have "seen" more than being told what was happening, but then was "showed" all the bank transfers and felt like it bogged down the flow a bit.

The characters seemed human enough, but most novels I've picked up lately have a token gay character, as
