A double assassination in the opening chapter sucked the air out of me, but the surprises did not let up. Interesting story lines are skillfully woven together so the reader never loses any of the many threads. The spare writing suits the pace and the action, and yet the many characters come alive--even those who appear and die in short order. Point of view shifts at just the right time add to the intensity. Specific and interesting details are folded in to engage the reader in every scene.
The plotting, right up to the big surprise ending and one more surprise after that big one, is layered and intelligent. Many times when I thought, "Ok, now I've got it," a new, but credible, twist changed everything.
"Chain of Command" deserves a sequel. But even if there is none, I'll look forward to Ms. Marshall's next novel.
The consensus of opinion is that a murdered ex-SEAL killed the VP, but that's a belief his former SEAL partner refuses to accept. He and a female reporter work together... following a path in and out of danger... to get to the truth behind the assassinations. Their biggest challenge is to discover that truth without becoming part of the mounting body count the assassin is leaving in his wake.
This is a fast-moving, thoroughly enjoyable read. It even has a little bit of romance. (What? A hot ex-SEAL and a female reporter... what did you expect?) I highly recommend it. Four and a half stars, rounded up to five.
The plot line has kept me guessing as to what will happen next. The main character is a strong woman who will stop at nothing to get to the facts. The characters have been woven together in a most intriguing fashion. Each chapter just keeps getting better and better and you can't wait to find out what happens next. Highly recommend this to mystery readers. Great book !!!
About the only negative: I found the very creative variations on "Jesus on a stick" a little distracting after a while. Other than that, well done. A keeper.
