MCLAUGHLIN, JAMES A.BEARSKIN Ecco 2019 0062742809 / 9780062742803 PAPERBACK . Ecco 4/16/2019. New paperback. Store pick: This is a thriller of the highest order. While the story and setting is unlike your typical action thriller, it is one that grabs hold of you and simply won't let go. For anyone who enjoys a Lee Child or Nelson DeMille read, this is one that should be on your 'must read' list. The pacing of the story and development of Rice Moore, the main character are such that you will have a hard time putting this one down. The book is less about plot twists and surprises than it is the gradual unfolding of a complex and compelling character who is both approachable and enigmatic. It is one of those that will leave you wishing for more when you finish it, and hoping that maybe we haven't heard the last of Rice Moore and his journey. I rate this one at the top of my scale: 5/5. -Brent B., store volunteer (seconded by Nancy M.)
