Fast paced with vivid characters. The dialogue is crisp and clever.

Booklist Review
Murder, mayhem, and one psychotic drug lord leave Elena Kyler and her young son, Barry, in the extremely capable hands of Sean Galen, a mercenary operative from the Body of Lies.

Sean becomes involved with Elena at the behest of the DEA and Logan, a wealthy entrepreneur (and recurring character). Sean engineers a complicated rescue of the young but far from innocent mother from Colombia, followed by her conveyance to California.

Elena, who has been trained to survive in the jungles of Colombia by her mercenary father, is willing to become bait in order to trap drug lord Chavez, who raped her and now wants custody of her son. She wants Chavez dead, preferably by her own hand, but things get out of hand at the DEA safe house, and Elena has no one to turn to but Galen. He recognizes her as a kindred soul, but they don't know whom else they can trust because Chavez controls an extensive drug empire, and has enormous wealth at his disposal.

What with its taut plot and complex characters, this is vintage, fan-pleasing Johansen.

Journal Entry 7 by Moody-Blue from Montrose, Colorado USA on Saturday, September 29, 2007
My honey wants to read this one. A female sniper as the heroine? I knew he'd jump all over it! I'm sure it has -nothing- to do with the fact that the gal on the cover looks like Linda Hamilton from the Terminator movies! ;)

Never got around to reading it and we're fixing to move. I'm going to pass it to a co-worker who likes murder mysteries.
