    This is the third book in the Max Freeman series Max left Philly man years ago and gave up being a cop He lives in the shacks of the Everglades and would pretty much prefer not to associate with others He is a very private man His high school buddy is a succesful lawyer who has Max freelance as a private investigator His old girlfriend is on the police department and feels missing girls are not missing but dead She thinks an ex cop from Philly is responbile and convinces Max to find evidence to arrest him The plot moves at a uick pace and both stories are told well Max is investigating a cruise ship company who is threatening their illegal workers after a boiler blows up You feel for these people who are trying to make a living and are exploited by the rich people He also is helping out with the missing girls King keeps his storyline tight and when clues are presented he doesnt give you a false lead or red herrings but you need to figure it out and decide how to use the infomation to determine what happened to these girls

    This is the third book in the series of a Philly Cop Max Freeman disabled out of the force living in the Florida Everglades Good descriptions of the area wrapped around a mystery surrounding the building of the Tamiami Trail through the Everglades Max solves the case with the help of his friends not before a few people are maimed and killed

    While I wasn't too thrilled with the second book of the Max Freeman series this is closer to what I fell in love with about the first book clever story and awesome charactersIt seemed like there were a few things yet to be resolved fire? but maybe that will come up in the next book

    45I was captivated by the background story of a time not that far away and the evil that men do I'm thinking 5 stars half way through this novel Jonathon King's writing is engaging I've thoroughly enjoy the first three books of this series Max Freeman is a protagonist with a mix of toughness determination and humor I like the fact that he has to canoe home However the last 40 pages or so were unsatisfying to uote another reviewer I can't actually put my finger on the reason It just made me feel a bit blase' Maybe the ending seemed a little unreal and choreographed not uite lifelike There also wasn't much suspense or action in this Max Freeman version but the story made up or it Overall I thought the book was very worth the reading if you like this genre I was sorely tempted to give it five stars


  9. says:

    This 3rd book in the Max Freeman series took me much longer than I anticipated to read I think it was the building of the suspense that was too slow but once I got 23 through the book really picked up


  10. says:

    The best part of this series is the setting If it wasn't for that it wouldn't be anything special However I enjoy the stories I will be continuing the series
