Once in a while you go to a used book store and find a book that you missed years ago. This is such a book. Current as it was in 1993 with international drug trade, murder, police corruption, and a brave policeman who does the right thing. This has it all and then some. Lindsey is a Texan and writes about Houston in this novel. You are there with the heat, humidity, all of it.
Recommended for all suspense readers. ( )

Excellent mystery...lots of characters...lots of twist/turns....very long book, bit slow at first, but grabs you once you get into it. 561 pages of small print. ( )
