This time around, Hood is running the California-Mexico border with the ATF, searching for the iron river - the massive and illegal flow of handguns and automatic weapons that fuels the bloody cartel wars south of the border. Gunrunners by nature aren't exactly ethical, but the lengths they'll go to, and the innocent lives they'll risk, are shocking even to Hood. Most shocking of all is the close personal connection Hood finds wrapped up in events south of the border - a connection that shakes him to his core. Download and start listening now!

    " Let me say first that I'm a fan of T. Jefferson Parker and like all his books, some more than others. "Iron River" is in the "others" category. This is another Charlie Hood novel, and Charlie and his Blowdown team are working overtime to stem the flow and sale of guns between Mexico and the U.S. There are so many bad guys you need a score card to keep up, especially when some of them use different names, depending on with whom they're dealing. There is extreme violence, a high body count, plots, and subplots. You really need to take notes. Strangest among the cast of characters is Mike Finnegan, a man so badly injured after being hit by a truck that he shouldn't even be alive, much less able to crawl a mile for help, and then recover in the hospital with lightning speed. Add in the fact that he knows things that are happening while confined to a hospital bed, can seem to read people's thoughts, and might possibly be from another planet. I'd like to say that everything wrapped up neatly at the end, but it didn't. There's so much left to settle that a sequel must be in the works. Parker seemed to change his writing style, using a technique that suggested he was channeling his inner Hemingway. For example: Instead of saying, "she was cold, wet, hungry, tired, and angry", he would write, "she was cold and wet and hungry and tired and angry. (My example - not in the book). He gave up on commas in favor of "and", using about a thousand it seemed. I found it annoying. Only diehard fans will like this book. "

    " As usual T. Jefferson Parker did not disappoint! This is the third book in his Charlie Hood series and I can hardly wait for another one. In the meantime I am reading all the rest of his books. He is definitely my favorite author. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone. I have turned a lot of my customers at the library onto him and they are very happy with the recommendation. "

    " Charlie is working with the ATF and the devil - literally, as it turns out -- is in the details of his assignment. We meet Mike Finnegan, one of the most interesting characters ever to be introduced in mystery fiction. Is he just nuts, or really demonic. "

    " A very fun read. In this one, the good guys are outsmarted. "
