I purchased this book since I enjoy "The Jake Grafton series". I began to read with my usual sense of expectation of a great read. Not happening. About a fourth of the way through I had noticed Jake Grafton" had only made a "cameo" appearance so far. I kept reading and waiting for "Jake" to do his thing..... Bottom line if you're buying this particular story because to too love "The Jake Frafton" series, you will be Dissapointed as I was.

From the start Coonts gets your attention. The US Govt. brings a drug lord to America to stand trial. He uses Columbian tactics to be released. Everything from commando teams to an assassin to take out the President. The book starts to flow when the assassin wounds President Bush. The story is great. Well developed...until the end. I would have given this book 4 stars if the ending would have lived up to the rest of the interesting story line. With what we have learned in the book about the assassin, it is hard to believe he would act as he does after being so meticulous.
