About this product
- SynopsisThe Cold War is over, and Keith Landry, one of the nation's top intelligence officers, is forced into early and unwanted retirement. Restless, Landry returns to Spencerville, the small Midwestern town where he grew up. The place has changed in the quarter century since Landry stepped off his front porch into the world, but two important people from his past are still there. The first is Annie Prentis, his school sweetheart and college lover. The second is Cliff Baxter, the high school bully, Landry's rival, and now the police chief of Spencerville and the jealous and possessive husband of Annie Prentis. They're all about to come together again and rip Spencerville apart with violence, vengeance, and renewed passion.

Nelson Demille tends to vacillate between writing mysteries and suspense thrillers. This book is the latter, of which he does a good job of story telling and character building. Nelson Demille tends to write two kinds of heroes ... the naive upstanding guy (ala Gold Coast) and the wise cracking, been around the block guy (ala Plum Island). Our protagonist is of the latter variety here, which I think Demille writes best. Spencerville is a page turner right up to the end, but I thought the ending lacked a certain amount of imagination and was a tad abrupt. I enjoyed the build up of the main character, but in the end, felt a little disappointed in him (unfulfilled kick-assedness as it were). Not Demille's best (Plum Island is my favorite of his for comparison) but certainly not his wost. Solidly Demille is how I'd explain this book and worth reading. Read full review
