This story of One Woman and her Faithful Glock was a bit of disappointment. It started well, with some gripping scenes in the desert, but around the halfway mark everything seemed to get a bit samey, with each scene mimicking the previous one, characters spouting cryptic movie-speak, and everyone the main character went to see turning out to be dead by the time she got there. Scene after scene we witnessed the sort of bullet-riddled blood-drenched devastation that suggested a Cormac McCarthy novel had recently passed through. And why was there always food spilled on the floor? Not one I'd be in a hurry to recommend. ( )

Third novel featuring Alex Delillo. A decent read but nothing electrifying. ( )

ADVENTURE / THRILLER. Lieutenant Alex Delillo is embroiled in the sinister disappearance of an ex-LAPD officer last seen in war-ravaged Iraq. Cathy Salem is desperate for Lieutenant Alex Delillo's help. Her husband, Jack, an ex-LAPD officer now working for a private security firm, has officially been listed as missing after he failed to return home from an eleven-month placement in Iraq. Cathy knows that he is in hiding in the States but it is all too apparent that he is too scared to come home. Her only clue to his whereabouts is a package sent by him to her, posted in Trona in Death Valley, with a letter inside it addressed to Alex. Alex met him once years ago and have never spoken since. Alex nevertheless agrees to look into Jack's disappearance. It is only when Cathy herself vanishes and Alex is nearly run off the road whilst following a lead as to Jack's whereabouts, that she realises that this goes far beyond a simple missing persons case.… (more)
