Field of Fire is great fun and compelling reading. It¿s a fast paced police thriller with a Spillane-like authenticity. Alex Duarte comes off as a true-to-life ATF agent, a man of few words who is shy with women, modest, still lives at home with his parents and a brother who drives him nuts, but he¿s nobody¿s fool. Also, while Duarte is anything but a showy macho man, he¿s a guy that nobody should push around. I hope we see more books in this series.
ATF agent Alex ¿Rocket¿ Duarte has returned from Bosnia and is working diligently to get a promotion to a supervisory position. At present he and his partner are searching at the migrant camp in western Palm Beach County for Alberto Salez so they can arrest for him violating firearms statutes. The wily man escapes and later that night Salez¿s car explodes by someone who used it to tripwire it.---------------------- Caren Larson, a lawyer for the Department of Justice is assigned to work with Duarte because there have been two other G-4 bombings, one in Seattle and one in Virginia. Assistant Attorney General Bob Morales believes that the men who were targeted in the bombings were trying to organize labor and someone wanted them to stop. Duarte¿s instincts tell him there is a cover-up going on and when another person gets murdered in California, by the same hit man involved in the other bombings he believes Caren is holding back on him, something that could cost all the people working on the case their lives.----------- FIELD OF FIRE is a fantastic police procedural with a protagonist who once he gets the scent of a crime is like a bloodhound who needs to continue until he gets his prey. Women will adore the hero who is innocent when it comes to females but has superlative investigative skills that allow him to think outside the box. Surprisingly, the hitman has a conscience in spite of how he makes a living as he goes out of his way not to kill Duarte. He needs his own novel.-------- Harriet Klausner
