A mysterious woman shows up at a gala party at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She has a couple of things for Gabriel Hunt: a whiskey bottle full of what appears to be water and the battle flag of a Confederate cavalry regiment. Before she can give them to Hunt, someone snatches the package. A fist fights and gun battles ensue, followed by car chases, motorcycle chases, airboat chases, lots more shooting, some mild sex, a bull-whip fight (with a nice aside), a fight on a plank bridge across a deep gorge in the Guatemalan jungle, and probably more things I've forgotten. Things never slow down, so take a deep breath before you start to read. You might not come up for air for a while.
I had a wonderful time reading this book. I am, after all, the target audience. But I can't see why anybody wouldn't love it. It got a starred review in PW, so I'm certainly not alone. Highly recommended.
