4.0 out of 5 stars Equally Fine Outing In This Series 18 Jun. 2017
By James Ellsworth - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As an earlier reviewer notes, the great and gripping strength of this plot is the long escape adventure through the jungles of Guatemala, with its overview of special ops/survival technology. Ex-Marine Rich Welsh and 'damsel in distress Maggie Scanlan give it all they've got as they try to evade and escape from corrupt military pursuers and native indian bounty hunters.

Followers of this entertaining series find Rich working for a US Senator as a military affairs aide. Marine Corporal Thomas Richardson, the son of a major Party Chairman in the Senator's home state, is among those killed in a street-side ambush in Guatemala City. The Chairman wants to know why. The book opens with an honest look at the trials and temptations young Marines face in providing security to American diplomatic posts. There is plenty of 'corrupt state' and CIA misadventures to season the plot as well. I recommend this heartily to Thriller readers.

As with each Christie book I have read, editorial problems with wrong words crop up to challenge the reader: what word was intended? Computerized spell-checkers are 'the Devil's tool' where writers rely on them too much.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Action Novel 18 Oct. 2012

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this Christie novel, as I have all the others. Evil bad guys; a doomsday terror plot; a good guy who is just bad enough; lots of action; wrongheaded, greedy politicians; even an interesting twist in teaching an innocent woman to survive in a dangerous, cruel place. What's not to like?

A fast moving story that grips the reader. Suspenseful and well written.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT a nice place to visit, and wouldn't want to live there - 20 Sept. 2000
By Brian Brandt - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is a definite buy for Special-Ops fans. Rich Welsh is a former Marine who is sent to Guatemala to investigate the deaths of several Marine embassy guards. In the course of his investigation, he becomes the target of powerful forces who wish to silence him. Welsh uses the Special-Ops skills he learned in the Marines, and the political savvy from his job as a Senatorial aid, to evade his pursuers.
The reason I liked this book is that it gives a realistic and detailed look at a skilled jungle expert in action. For fans of the "Political Intrigue" genre, there is a subplot involving the C.I.A. and their operatives in Latin America.
If you're looking for a "No-Dames" man's adventure, you may be disappointed, because this book has a romantic interest. Publishers, I'm told, usually demand that one be tacked on to improve sales demographics. This one, however, is integral to the story, because the way Welsh teaches his female companion to survive in the jungle is one of the book's most interesting aspects.
Another eye-opener is the author's cynical - and probably accurate - attitude toward the way third-world nations manipulate environmental and human rights concerns in their dealings with the U.S., and his observations on the way their society works compared to ours. If you don't appreciate living in the U.S. at the start of the book, you will at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book! 28 July 2007
By Connie L. McCall - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
What an exciting and well written book. I'm exhausted from the tension of trying to escape the jungle with the main characters. I felt like I was there with them. You write like you have lived it all yourself. Amazing story and the details make it all so real. I can't wait to read the next book of yours. And I will be today...I have them all. Now I can look forward to the next book you have coming out once it's published.
