    Suspense and a Perilous

    This book is different from the other Carol Golden novels because the theme, global warming and other woes people are alleged to have perpetrated upon the earth, is currently hot (excuse the bad joke). Actually, the book has two threads. One is the disappearance of Carol's husband, Rigo, which starts things off with suspense that carries the action along at a fast pace. The other is the activities of a group of people who supposedly have the best interests of the human race at heart. Carol and her sidekick, Jennifer, a trainee spy, have to determine who is attempting to do what to whom while they try to find Rigo alive. Interesting questions arise about how folks use junk science to promote an agenda. Can't think of anybody like that outside of government and those whose stature depends on having people believe the "correct" things, whether they are true or not .

    A Skilled Mystery of High Stakes

    In Good to the Last Death by Alan Cook, investigator Carol Golden has to chase down her lost husband Rigo, ultimately from coast to coast. Along the way Carol and her fellow spy Jennifer find themselves on stakeouts, held captive, and on the run. Especially since Rigo is in a similar predicament and Cook develops nice parallels in the plotline, all this activity leads to a suspenseful, fun read. The plot focuses on a nefarious group called Save Our Planet [SOP] that claims they are out help the human race, but are instead fixated on wiping out large swaths of population. The group’s intentions add urgency and gravity to efforts to spring Rigo and track down SOP before it can do damage. Minor characters like Jules, Jacob, and Betty give Good to the Last Death some unexpected pleasures. Likewise, an early character Henry manages to exude timidity, creepiness, and kindness simultaneously. Hey, any novel with an honest-to-goodness cliffhanger promises to play with our expectations. Good to the Last Death delivers on its rhythms of action and intrigue, including some fine late twists. Pick up Cook’s fine story. You’ll enjoy it.
