Is doing an excellent job at highlighting the 'hidden dangers' of using depleted uranium ammunition. In retrospect, I think the 'most interesting' thing about it is the ending - it was 'different' and surprised me. Worst-case scenario is that the warhead is in the hands of the tyrannical Benico Von Weiss, a man with particular interests: luxury cruiseliners, busty blondes, Nazi memorabilia and poisonous snakes. In a foreign country, with little to go on and clear communication barriers, Vin and Masters do their best to keep the trail from drying up. I liked the writing style and the humor. Is someone trying to shatter fragile hopes for Middle East peace, topple governments by any means necessary, and eliminate anyone who gets in the way? Cooper and Masters find themselves hunted, smacked around, shot at, buried alive and blown up from Turkey to Iraq, to Egypt to Oak Ridge.
After finishing school, Rollins intended to find a job with the military. Send an e-mail to site orderofbooks. The victims were not selected at random. His body is dissected and left left in place like an airplane model to be assembled. It seemed more like a industrial coverup of wrong doing or trying to reduce the competition in that lucrative business. . There are some scenes that naturally require suspension of disbelief but this novel reads like Mission Impossible in some instances; the action is completely over the top.
If you like Jack Reacher then I would advise trying Vin and Rollins. I think Lee Child's Jack Reacher must be becoming the new 'prototype' for masculine heroes in novels. Soon, there is 2nd corpse. The ammunition used by American forces included rounds with depleted uranium inside, and coalition soldiers like Portman, as well as the Iraqi population, would bear the bitter but contested brunt of this choice of weaponry. Outstanding character development on all levels. I am now reading book 4 in the series, Ghost Watch.
It was published by Bantam and has a total of 576 pages in the book. I recently read David Rollins first Vin Cooper novel, The Death Trust and really had no idea what to expect; assuming it would be a Tom Clancy-esque military thriller, I was very pleasantly surprised to find a sarcastic Air Force internal affairs cop Cooper racing alongside his de facto partner, Ann Masters, from one disastrous situation to the next. I will keep you posted on my thoughts. Cooper discovers that the apparently fine, upstanding General Scott kept some highly questionable company. It might be 100 pages or so too long but the big impact ending is worth the effort.
Kept imprisoned in a wagon, the Golden Whore Lucia presents Rufinius and the hag Mena with an opportunity, but with it comes a risk that could kill them both.

Portman had been a fighter pilot during the 1991 Gulf War and, under orders, he had taken part in the strafing of Iraqi highway 80, later known as the Highway of Death. It held my interest throughout the course of the reading; however, I did not have any issues with putting the book down if something else came up. Rollins has the right to write what and how he likes. I won't go into many specifics of the story but the first third of the book showed very little progress in the investigation and the only thing that kept the story off life support was the author's sense of humor in building the banter between Cooper and Masters.
I have the right to never pay to support his work, which I'll gladly take. He doesn't want to admit what that could mean. To begin, my name is Fabian and I have the pleasure of saying that I was privileged to meet face to face to David Rollins. He was carefully dismembered, his body parts laid out like an exploded diagram—except for twelve missing bones, three of which show up a few days later at another grisly murder scene. The plotline is a serious one and made me think more about the sacrifices made by those that defend us, and the way our government works to care for them afterward.
I don't want to ruin it for any new readers but I will say that the murder and subsequent coverup is very realistic and sound. Why do the slayings appear to have been executed with military precision? Known for researching his work thoroughly, he always makes sure to speak to those involved with his material, such as military officials and the police. The Jack Reacher series is written by a Brit who lives in America; this series is written by an Aussie who still lives in Australia. This featured Sergeant Tom Wilkes and was to form the basis of much of his future work being that of high-tech espionage along with those in the secret-service. As Vin and Special Agent Anna Masters investigate, inconsistencies crop up that cast doubt on their theory of the case—and hint at a shadowy plot that may be even darker and more sinister than two grotesque connected slayings.
You may want to read what I am going to write with a grain of salt. After a plane crash occurs when an explosion takes place on a 747, Joe Light finds himself plummeting alongside his fellow passengers. On board there is sheer panic. Rollins weaves a terrific story from start to finish. This site is like a library, you could find million book here by using search box in the widget. But Vin has never liked losing.
