Charlie Hood
review 1: This is the first of this series of books I have read. Charlie Hood is an ATFE agent in southern Californai. He is involved in a shooting where a drug lord's son is killed. In revenge, the criminal takes one of Hood's fellow agents hostage. At the same time a bankrupt gun manufacturer attempts to restart production, selling 1000 silenced machine pistols to the someone who obviously intends to smuggle them into Mexico.The book gives a stark picture of life along the border and inside the Mexican drug wars. I presume that it is mostly true.
review 2: Action(?), mystery(?), thriller(?) - well that is as close as I can get to classifying the story. There is not much story here. A bankrupt gun manufacturing company illegally produces and sells automatic handheld wea
... morepons into Mexico. The ATF does their best to stop the flow of weapons but will they intervene in time to stop the Love - 32? I've tried to make that sound interesting, but it wasn't. The most complex character in the novel is a small man who is hit by a car in the desert. He spends most of the time in the hospital engaging with the ATF in enigmatic philosophical discussions about good and evil, but as quickly and strangely as he enters the book he leaves. This book need more twists and turns. It is very superficial, but it was at times very engaging. less

Improbable, poorly written story that i'm surprised I finished.
Not one of Parker's best novels. Left too much hanging!
Very boring, could not finish.
