This has been one of my favorite series over the past few years...with consistently fabulous writing and engaging story lines. Robert Dugoni rarely fails to entertain. This guy can write anything (and I truly mean that...his books have covered suspense, thrillers, police procedural, spy and espionage fiction, and even coming-of-age/domestic drama). He's a truly talented author.
Now that I've sufficiently bragged about Mr. Dugoni, ...more
