DNF...I'm calling it at 45%

(Review Not on Blog)

My bad, I was expecting this book to be focused more on law and justice suspense, but it was more a political intrigue mystery. I am not really a fan of spy/intrigue novels. I did request this book and thought it could be more like Richard North Patterson - political suspense. Peter Rena is a fixer, in the sense he makes problems go away. He and his partner, Randi own a company that does just that. I could not connect to Rena...he just seemed like another Reacher (Lee Child) and there was nothing that made me interested in knowing more about him. That combined with the story, just didn't work for me. I just could not read anymore as there were other books beckoning me.
