Former small town police chief turned CIA Special Agent Holly Barker tracks a dangerously clever killer in this explosive thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods.

When his plane exploded off the coast of Maine, authorities thought they had seen the last of Teddy Fay--the ex-CIA tech wizard who kills his political targets for sport. But now they've found irrefutable evidence that he is alive and up to his old tricks. Now working for the CIA, ex-chief-of-police Holly Barker joins the elite task force tracking Fay in New York City. As he begins to pick off America's enemies one by one, Holly unexpectedly finds herself face-to-face with the killer, kick-starting a high-speed chase through the canyons of midtown Manhattan, the Metropolitan Opera house, Central Park, and the United Nations Plaza, all to prevent another assassination before Fay disappears again--maybe this time for good.

Big disappointment. The pace is as slow as cold molasses. I disliked the beginning with Holly's deception and hated the conclusion. Bad enough to turn me away from this character.

Of the Holly B. series this one is one of
the more enjoyable reads. Set in New York. Can you believe Holly didn't
have sex? IT 's still four stars.

A really great read! Lots of fieldcraft! The Teddy Fay character is especially interesting; it's like he's the perfect agent.( Then again he should be as he worked for the CIA for more than 40 years!) I also like Daisy and Ham. One of the author's better books.

Truly dreadful. Ridiculous plot. Stupid characters. Irritating dialogue. And pointless filler between. Interesting in that it shows how horrible a book can be and still get put on paper.

Fairly good book. A little too far out but a good read
