Keith Landry has survived the tumultuous 1960s, the Vietnam war, and a career fighting the Cold War mostly on “enemy” turf only to find himself up against a local cop who happens to be married to the woman Landry left all of those years ago. In Spencerville a man of the world moves back to the small town where he was raised. Things have changed; some of them at least. Landry is not sure why he returned to his parents’ house. They have moved to sunny Florida and have lease most of the family farm fields to others. Something or someone has drawn him back and that may spell trouble…okay it is trouble.
Author Nelson DeMille continues to be one of my favorite authors and fortunately for me he has quite a catalogue of novels for me to digest. I got about a third of the way through this book and remarked to my wife that I wasn’t sure how DeMille could fill the final pages as the story seemed to be coming to a climax rather quickly. It didn’t and the author treated me with a rather good story.
