Highly improbable behavior on the part of the protagonists. The author has become totally enamored by his own command of the English language and his powers of scenic description which repeatedly interrupt the flow of the action scenes. Those inclined towards considered acts in the end act foolishly. The skilled in personal defense and the use of lethal force suddenly become clumsy and stupid. I assure you, the instincts of self-preservation learned in combat are not forgotten as one watches an expended shotgun shell roll down hill. Towards the end of the book, the editing falls apart. The central figure fires a shotgun round and jack in another shell. Then he turns too late and jacks in another - what for, it's already holding a live round. The underlying evil plot is never really fleshed out into anything significant. Oh, and after repeatedly declaring that they are now operating under a "black flag" (supposedly meaning that there are no rules and it's kill them all) they warn everybody that they are police and to throw down your weapons. BTW, a .25 caliber bullet will not penetrate a weight-lifter's body and put him down. Pistol bullets rarely put anyone down unless they are head and neck shots.
In sum, bright people doing dumb things and acting contrary to their declared intent. Watch out for them Cajun drawbridges, they keep opening all the time. SUPERB NARRATOR WASTED ON DISAPPOINTING WORK. I want my money back!
I found this book very disappointing. The plot was weak and predictable. If you enjoy an abundance of drugs, sexual innuendo and profanity embedded in every other conversation, then this is a great book for you.
