    CIA cleaner Micah Dalton returns for another go-round of the international espionage, government cover-ups, and high-intensity pursuit that have cemented this series in the best of spy fiction.

    Thomas says: "Almost as good"
    "Disappointing after Echelon"
    Overall

    After being very impressed with "Echelon Vendetta", I couldn't wait to read this one. However, this book is not nearly as good. They both have nice long twisting story lines, but this book feels like the author didn't spend near enough time on developing and refining the moving parts. Characters and dialogue are thin. The book has at least 4 characters portrayed as sexual deviants... a little too much focus in that area.

    When CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton's friend and mentor turns up dead, he's put on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex-CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?

    "Rich detail, great ride, well read"
    Overall

    The Good:
    The characters are very well developed and the dialogue flows naturally, making it easy for the reader to get wrapped into the story. In particular, the Italian Major Bronchotti's interaction with the flawed Micah Dalton is excellent. Micah's boss also has a small arsenal of colorful sayings that even take the main character a while to decode. Narration is very good.
    The Bad:
    The author overused ghosts/hallucinations, and I thought that it cheapened the book a bit. The rest of the book was so well developed, that it was a distraction.
