Read in October, 2010

This is the sequel to Guardian Lies and continues the deadly threat of the Mexican executioner, Liquida, who is bent on revenge and is going to make Paul Madrini and Harry Hinds pay. Earlier Steve Martini books centered around courtrooms and legal issues which I liked much better than his more recent ventures into political/international terrorism plots. I think other authors including DeMille and Ludlum "do" terrorism better than Martini perhaps because their protagonists are cops or spies instead of a couple of criminal attorneys in way over their collective heads. As a result the plot twists get too convulted but the writing is still pretty good so I keep reading. I'll be glad though when Martini gets back to writing legal courtroom thrillers but whatever he writes, I'll be reading.
