    The promise, as I remember it, happened this way. Happy and content in his hometown of Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O'Connor has left his badge behind and is ready for a life of relative peace, setting up shop as a private investigator. But his newfound state of calm is soon interrupted when Henry Meloux, the Ojibwe medicine man and Cork's spiritual adviser, makes a request: Will Cork find the son that Henry fathered long ago?

    If you could sum up Thunder Bay in three words, what would they be?

    The narrator was very monotone and I had a very hard time distinguishing between the characters.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Buck Schirner?

    Anyone that can distinguish between characters and can read with some emotion.

    On Parrish Island, a restricted island off the coast of Virginia, is a little-known and never-visited psychiatric facility. There, the government stores former intelligence employees whose psychiatric states make them a danger to their own government, people whose ramblings might endanger ongoing operations or prove dangerously inconvenient. One of these employees, agent Hal Ambler, is kept heavily medicated and closely watched. But there's one difference between Hal and the other patients, Hal isn't crazy.

    Overall

    Having been an avid Ludlum fan for decades, this book was a bit of a disappointment. Almost 5 hours in I was ready to give up... but it finally turned around enough to keep my interest for the remainder. If you are not a true Ludlum fan and one with a lot of patience, I wouldn't suggest this one!
