    For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of countless Americans. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many, and an enemy to countless more. In the tangled, duplicitous world of espionage, there are those, even among America's allies, who want to see Mitch Rapp eliminated. They have decided the time has come.

    "Very good read!"
    Overall

    This thriller was my first exposure to the author and to the hero. I liked them both. The understanding of the Saudi threat and of the Wahabbi mentality are first rate. A few technical slips by the excellent narrator (Anne Arundel county in MD is mispronounced, etc.) barely mar a superb reading. My only substantive critique is the very end (don't worry, I won't reveal it), where the epilogue just does not compute.

    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    Deborah says: "How Does One Manage?"
    "Another excellent Robichaux novel"
    Overall

    Burke has become somewhat formulaic, and I have gone from totally enthralled to "merely" pleased with his books. This one is classic Dave Robichaux -- though I note that Dave no longer speaks his native Cajun with anyone. Katrina is the occasion for this book, and the return to a destroyed New Orleans is of particular interest.
