Publisher's Summary

Washington, DC, midday. A man waits at a bus stop, his intentions unknown. Two government operatives have been stalking him for days, waiting for him to make his move. Unexpectedly the man takes off running and heads for a deserted warehouse. Jack Noble and his partner, Frank Skinner, believe the man to be part of a terrorist organization that is involved in smuggling drugs, guns, and men into the country. But it turns out their plan involves far more export than import and hits a lot closer to home. As the case unfolds, the man behind it all reaches out to Jack with a simple message...37 hours.

Lacking, Too Simple

There is no depth to this story. There is no intrigue. There is no suspense. There is no detective or investigative work. There is just 2 super secret agents with a potential girl friend being led around on a chase. They don't discover anything on their own, they let the bad guy send them here and there. They don't have any special investigative tools. They only thing they have is some 'get out of trouble' card because they are some super special government agency. There are no women agents (and maybe no minorities - can't tell since none of them are described other than 'he'). The only women in the novel include a victim and possible love interest. The simplistic story, the lack of women coworkers, lack of detail, character development results in the book coming across like it might have been written in the 50s or 60s if it weren't for the cell phones (or was written for TV). None of the coworkers are developed into characters. Even the lead characters lack development (eg we never know why Frank has been sleeping at the office for 2 months, but we do know he is married. or why is his mood bouncing around and not 'normal') . Incomplete in so many ways. The story reads like a first try at writing a story with his lack of information, detail, character development, no real plot or suspense. Bottom line, don't waste your time on this book you will be disappointed if you like novels with more depth, texture and character development (try instead Micheal Connolly, Vince Flynn, Mark Greany, Brad Taylor, Tim Tigner to name a few)
