5th in the Ceepak books, a solid example, marred with a couple of examples of gratuitous political snark, and a somewhat over-inflated plot.

However, the development of Danny Boyle as an equal in the partnership is good to see; in this volume his maturation in character and virtue justifies Ceepak's investment of time and loyalty at a crucial point in the action.

As long as Grabenstein keeps this level of enjoyment up, I'll keep reading.

3rd Danny Boyle and John Ceepak, they're in Atlanta city for non-work business when an old girlfriend of Danny's is killed.

I always thought it would be interesting to be a CSI; but after reading this book I have realized there are some things I never want to see. Ever. Some subject matter was disturbing (see notices). If you like the Ceepak series; and have a strong stomach I suppose you'd need to read this book to get to the next. (Rolling Thunder?). This was my least favorite.
