Read from September 07 to 19, 2010

This was the first book I read by Stuart Woods and I can't say that I was too impressed. Based on the title, I expected the book to center around a murder, however, the murder didn't occur until halfway through the book. There were so many subplots that I felt the murder took a backseat almost as an after thought. It was intriguing to read about the blacklisting of communists in Hollywood after WWII, but once again this was another plot in the book with no real connection to the murder. I felt as if the author should have either concentrated on the murder plot or the blacklisting plot, the book just wasn't long enough to give justice to both.
