Characters are well developed and the story line is easy to follow. The flow of the story is natural and entertaining. Looking forward to more Pat Ruger tales. Thank you, Jack Huber, for the laughter and excitement this book offered.
This is a great story that had me truly hooked from the beginning. The plot is quite elaborate which I quite like, and there are plenty of twist and turns that kept me guessing throughout the book. There are parts to this story that are very clever, and I enjoyed the lighter moments the Author has added. Pat Ruger was one hell of a private investigator, and the CIA certainly knew all about him and how good he was. So, when a North Korean man is murdered that they believe is tied into one of their own investigations, they don’t hesitate in asking for his help, especially since they can’t operate legally on home soil. Of course, Pat feels compelled to get involved [but] he’s going to need to be extra careful, as the North Koreans will have no hesitation in killing anyone that gets in their way. I really did enjoy this book from the first page, right through to the last page. A very entertaining and captivating read.
I got to this show late, but glad I arrived!
I was previously unfamiliar with this author and series of books. It came across to me as a story to read for free in exchange for my honest review, and needed a change of pace so I took the plunge. I was shifted into the world of Pat Ruger the private investigator. The writing is smooth and easy to follow. Despite getting in at this point, Book 4, the story and characters are developed perfectly so you don't feel lost. The characters are well written. The good guys are very likable, and the bad guys are loathsome. Clever and fun!

Enjoyable and entertaining reading ride
What a super enjoyable, entertaining, and fast reading mystery by Jack Huber in this third book of the Pat Ruger series. I especially like that his main PI character is so human, relatable, and more important to me, believable. What a heavy load of emotional highs and lows is dropped on the readers as they follow Pat Ruger through his determination to solve the murder mystery. I will definitely be adding the prior books in this series to my TBR for sure.
Enjoyed the Novel
I found the novel well researched, steadily moving ahead and kept my interest until the end. The characters were many, varied and made you understand who they were and where they come from. I took the book on vacation and found it a great addition to my relaxing and getting away from daily life.
