Publisher's Summary

The Old Weatherman dreams of a plan that could be his swansong, an attack to drive a stake through the heart of the right-wing establishment and bury it for good. Now he’s found the money, the ideal weapon, and the professional who knows how to use it. And he has put his sights on the perfect target at the very seat of the United States government, in the heart of downtown Washington. It will be a strike heard round the world.
San Diego defense attorney Paul Madriani is still reeling from the trauma of a near nuclear explosion he helped avert near the naval base in Coronado. Threatened by federal authorities to keep quiet about the near-miss in California, Madriani is now faced with a new problem in the steely-eyed and alluring Joselyn Cole, a weapons control expert, who believes he has to go public with what he knows if they have any hope of stopping a similar event in the future.
But Madriani has been linked to a murder of a Washington, D.C., political staffer, and authorities believe a shadowy figure called Liquida—a hired assassin known as ‘the Mexicutioner’—may be responsible. And that this man, as the last survivor of the attack in San Diego, might be driven by a bizarre and horrifying, star-crossed vendetta and might now be looking for Madriani himself.
What Madriani and Cole begin to fear is that the Old Weatherman and this madman have joined forces and intend to pull the city—and the country—into a vortex of terror before Paul and Joselyn can find answers to the enigma that is "the rule of nine".

The Rule of Nine

I am a big fan of Steve Martini, but I was somewhat disappointed in this book. The narration was rather bland and uninteresting which made the story harder to follow since the scenes were constantly changing. I also found it frustrating that the story was left unfinished.

Lost and confused

I'm a Steve Martini fan, but as of late I'm becoming more confused. I love court room drama, but in Steve's last book and this latest it cast attorney Paul Madriani as an action hero. He's out saving the world instead of defending clients in the court room. That's an awkward position for a defense attorney.
