    I hope the author s product placement worked pages of superfluous detail detracting from the story and too much info about the background of everyone involved, even those who die very shortly in Not very good.

  2. Bernice Crosby Bernice Crosby says:

    Great story, especially when you are familiar with all the locations.

  3. Paul Douglas Paul Douglas says:

    Fast pace, interesting and familiar.

    The ending sucks, but before that, it was interesting to anyone who has spent time in Michigan s U.P from the Mackinac Bridge to Whitefish Point It s sad that the author felt it necessary to portray everyone from the local sheriff s office to the state police as bumbling yokels who couldn t be trusted to be given one simple scrap of information from which would have saved the protagonist just to advance his story and bring it to a too quick conclusion.

    I reviewed this book on Goodreads I ll try to remember what I said about it there I enjoyed this book, mostly because I have frequented the places in the book, the Paradise Michigan area and on down to the Straits of Mackinac McDougall describes the locations with loving familiarity His characters were well drawn, even his villains He gave enough background on the MC and the antagonists to make it intriguing It was pretty scary too Speaking as someone who crosses the mighty Mac on a monthly basis, I hope the bridge authority was able to get a hold of this book and take precautions to protect the vulnerabilities in the bridge security But that s why we read these things by local authors that have settings where we have been, because we love to think about the things that could happen there It gives us a vicarious thrill like seeing the Statue of Liberty half buried in sand or watching aliens blow up the white house in a movie This is like that Good job Mr McDougall

    I liked the book very much That being said, I think the book could have been written with much less gore and bloodshed I realize that Middle East terrorists are butchers and that this probably would happen exactly as it is written, but the violence does not have to be so pronounced to make this into a good book The idea of a submarine dropping off terrorists to make their way across southern Canada to blow up the Mackinac Bridge is probably possible, and hopefully this doesn t give any terrorists any ideas, but whether it can be done with a dirty bomb presents a good question Still it is a hard book to put down once you get into it.

    Being a Michiganian familiar with the UP I found this book quite entertaining The author did a good job of highlighting the state and there was plenty of action I might point out, however, that the people aren t nearly as corrupt as portrayed Its also obvious that the author isn t a yooper or he d be using that term instead of calling it the upper peninsula all the time The story line seemed somewhat concocted and improbably, but, hey, it s fiction I would have loved to see of the characters in other books, but I enjoyed it.

    I am one of the thousands who walk the Mackinac Bridge on Labor Day That means that there are some of the things in the book that do not pass muster Most glaring is that the walk is always from the St Ignace on the North end of the bridge to Mackinaw City at the South end of the bridge.Having said that, I enjoyed the story immensely I could imagine that a dedicated group of terrorists could manage to arrive at the bridge What I find very difficult to imagine is the very casual way in which the terrorists managed to get onto the bridge to position even the single explosive device It is absolutely correct that painting, repair and inspection go on during much of the year and spring, summer and fall find lane closures and equipment on the bridge I cannot imagine an false painting company arriving without prior authorization, much less being able to access the underside of the bridge I believe that contracts for painting are bid almost exclusively from bridge drawings and job specifications.This was a book I could relate to very closely.

    Can t believe this is his first book It was a book that was an easy and exciting read It was fast moving from the first page the last I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5, because in certain parts of the book I was a little confused with the time of day things were happening Also I was a bit sad the hero was not acknowledged by the locals But it was a great book and I would definitely read another book by this author.

    I enjoyed the book immensely As a Yooper, I have a real feeling for the bridge itself, which added to pleasure I marched in the dedication of it with my high school band I have sent it on to friend who marched as well She reports a good response as well It is brutal and bloody, but necessary for the plot Even the UP terrain and its tough people add to my positive commentary.
