In P.T. Deutermann's, Cold Frame, he had given us an exceptional thriller that deals with the world of counterterrorism. For Detective Sergeant Kenneth "Av" Smith, he worked for the Metro Police Department's Interagency Liasion Bureau (ILB) on bouncing cases to the FBI. But it all started with the murder of Francis McGavin, who was a member of the secret NSA agency called the DMX. But when they investigated it, things gotten out of hand. They tried to connect the dots, when Ellen Whiting who worked for the FBI, had explained her role in the investigation to bring them down. But not if Carl Mandeville, the leader of that rat pack, had anything to do with it. Things had gotten sticky, when another member of DMX was left cold with a violent chill with a poisonous plant. The deeper they investigate these murder, the more Av's smith were on the line, when they try to dispose of him. But in the end, when he escaped from their clutches from their unlikely friends, it would be Mandeville who would have the final word.
This was an amazing and stellar novel that focused on the war on terrorism. I cared about Av Smith and his crew at the ILB, even Precious Jones and the amazing Ellen Whiting. I thought Hiram Walker was an intriguing man. I loved the Washington D.C. area locations and central settings for this gripping novel, both sides of the border. This would take you into the world of counterterroism with every explosive page that would leave you at the edge of your seat. This is a book you can't put down and leave you hanging with non-stop action, drama, intrigue and suspense.
