Book #42–Choke Point

51Golbr0zuL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU01_I grabbed Choke Point from the library as I was walking by. I’ve enjoyed Ridley Pearson’s series on Lou Boldt and Walter Fleming. This was a Risk Agent novel, and I got through it, but didn’t love it.

I’m not sure why. It’s a thriller, a spy that’s freelance, hired to close down a slave labor ring in Amsterdam. He works with a Chinese hacker. On the surface it sounds great.

It must be the writing. Not sure what was wrong, but I didn’t like it, and struggled to read it. Even in places where the story got interesting, the writing was hard for me. It’s obtuse, obscure, almost implying more than it tells me.

This is the second book in the series, but I’m not sure I’ll read the first one. I need to think about it.
