review 1: I really liked this story - great plot twists and turns. Enjoyed the multiple settings of the story from Costa Rica to Mexico to San Diego. Character development was full, with Katia Solaz being a memorable beauty and Emerson Pike as an old Cold War remnant focused on an old nuke, with some real basis in fact from the Cuban missile crisis. Definitely worth a read. I'll probably purchase a few more novels from the Paul Madriani series.
review 2: I appreciated the quote from Winston Churchill in the epilogue "In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies."Martini's pace leaves you panting, as though from a 10K run in the winter. His characterizations of Katia, the hapless Costa Rican femme fatale, the Mexicutioner, Pa
... moreul Madriani, and his partner Harry Hinds were thoughtful and not overwrought, although the Mexecutioner was almost too evil for words. Still, given some of the horrendous happenings that we see reported south of the border from the drug cartels, Liquida, becomes more believable, even in broad daylight.If you like plot twists and turns and brute savagery from your Mexican bad fiends, Martini's Guardian of Lies will not disappoint. less

Well written fast paced book that I could not put down. Highly recommend.
I did NOT like this one. It's a convoluted mess.
This one keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Excellent thriller.
