An American senator, supposedly on a political trip to the Ukraine, turns up elsewhere...dead. The U. S. President asks dyslexic (who really cares?) former ATF agent Jack McClure, to find out how and why. To find those answers means sorting through details, diplomats, criminals, and corrupt politicians.
Nothing wrong with the general premise. Who wouldn't be curious about someone turning up dead, half a world away from where they're supposed to be? Unfortunately, the author has managed to ruin an intriguing idea yet again.
A mediocre "thriller." Only die-hard Lustbader fans will wade through this book.
