Rebecca's Reviews > Memory Ships
Aug 06, 2011
I picked up this book because it takes place in Chicago (well, some of it). A cab ride throws a disabled, retired detective into an incredible situation involving cargo ships built to be bombs more powerful than the one dropped onto Hiroshima. There's a white disabled cop who was forced to retire because of a shooting. His partner and best friend is black. There are terrorist ships built in Iraq. A Jewish Mossad agent enters the picture and also falls in love with the detective's daughter. Believe it or not, the Chicago mob helps the detective and the Mossad agent because as the author states, they may be gansters, but they are patriotic. Can't forget the deformed sharks. The last six pages lets us know what happened to almost every character and ship. Too pat. And, yet, except for the last chapter, I liked the story.
