Publisher's Summary

Cut adrift by British Intelligence at the end of the Cold War, Jack Case is called back into service following 9/11. In a quiet Alaskan backwater, a man named Danny Lewin has committed suicide. But this was no ordinary suicide. This was an agent who held secrets. A man haunted by his past interrogating prisoners in Iraq. And British Intelligence fear that he put his secrets down on paper. 

Before long Case is drawn into a manhunt that drags him into the murky underworld of contemporary espionage and leaves him questioning who his allies and who his enemies are. The rules of the game have changed since the Cold War, and now Case must impose his own rules....

Promising but falls short

The first half went quickly and I was ready for a hard hitting end. When the author fell back on the guy with a gun to his head escape it began to go flat. I think my biggest objection was the phenomenal number of times a character said, "I reckon," or "you reckon?" Does the author think that's how Americans speak?

Not for me

Narrator hard to understand, could not make any sense of the story. This was my first book by Michael Jecks, so I gave it a try
