This was listed as a reread but I think it is because I checked to see if I had read it. Regardless, it was an anti-climatic DeMille book. Agents' efforts to intercept a nuclear bomb going into NY Harbor. DeMille use to write better. Didn't really hold my attention. If I read it before it didn't make an impression...which is exactly my point.

this was 600 hundred pages of … I like demille but I didn't think this one flowed like usual...plus the sarcasm was weird...too much. almost like he bought a bunch of one-liners and had to get them in the story.

Really rather disappointing for DeMille. I know he writes long books, but this one meandered along, and could have been just as effective with 200 pages fewer. The story never really grips you in the way other DeMille books do, and that it took me four weeks to read rather than the usual week with his books, tells you that it was an also ran.

Venezuela is a very bad place to be for Americans, if this book is to be believed. Based on my other readings about the country, sadly I do believe it. Once a thriving country, rich because of its oil and a thriving economy, it is now a solid dictatorship rife with corruption and crime. So, Caracas is the perfect place for an AWOL’d soldier escaping the Taliban to be found. But what is his real motive and what is America’s for Venezuela? CID officers Brody and Taylor are sent first to Caracas to find and apprehend him and they follow his tracks deep into the jungle—both places, Caracas and the jungle, are characters as much as the people and as likely to kill them. Action-packed but also a lot of “telling” about back stories and repetition that gets a bit numbing. Still a good read that likely accurately portrays a country in serious distress.… (més)
