Excellent edge-of-your-seat stuff,
This review is from: Rock Creek Park (Paperback)
Part police procedural, part spy thriller, part apocalyptic sci-fi - but all of it absolutely brilliant, seat-of-the-chair entertainment - Conway's latest is a book that defies pigeon-holing, and is far, far more satisfying as a result. The body of a beautiful young woman is discovered in Washington's Rock Creek Park near the property of a powerful politician and a world-weary, ex-special forces cop is given the unlovely task of unravelling the crime. The hunt for the killer takes the reader from the drug-blasted ghettoes of DC, via the covert palaces of US power to the lawless badlands north of the Caucasus and unveils a secret all the more horrifying for it's absolute plausibility. Don't expect to sleep much after beginning this book. Highly recommended!
