I enjoyed this book. The authors blended in some of the true life material form their interesting book Mindhunter. If you like Brad Thor or even Preston & Child, you should check this book out.

This book has a sequel that was not the caliber of Wings, but one still hopes for another outing of our Wings cast -

Please, Mr. Douglas???

A lot better than I expected since I really dont read fiction and I furthermore
was surprised to learn John Douglas had authored a fiction book. But its not
entirely fiction at all and the romance scenes were also a nice touch. It
definitely beat my expectations and was an enjoyable read. I would recommend it
to fellow John Douglas fans.

After a badly managed standoff between a survivalist group and the FBI, agent/profiler Jake Donovan is forced into retirement as part of a major upheaval at the FBI. Soon afterwards, the Director of the FBI is found dead of a gunshot wound. It looks like a straightforward suicide, but was it? And if so, did the burned photos in the fireplace indicate blackmail which might have provided the Director with a motive? Donovan is summoned back to Quantico and asked to run an independent investigation to ensure (1) that the death was, in fact, what it looked like and (2) whether the Director was the victim of blackmail and, if so, whether the basis of the blackmail could be kept quiet. We all know that "independent" is anathema to a federal buraucracy, and suffice it to say that the book hits the ground running from there. Donovan manages to assemble a team of FBI misfits and rejects, financed by the widow(?)of a missing/dead statesman/crime lord. The team kicks butts and takes names and knows how to get the job done, never mind that nothing is who or what it seems. The novel is replete with intrigue, mistrust, grave robbing(!) [by the good guys!], forensics, sexual chemistry, and plenty of insight into how the FBI operates. I saw a great deal of autobiographical material vis-a-vis John Douglas, which worked superbly to make the pot boil faster. The novel could be construed as a giant nose-thumbing at FBI rules and regulations. I love it! The authors left the door wide open for their next collaboration, and I will eagerly await it.

The main character John Donovan is a mirror of John Douglas himself. Some people might have an issue with that he writes a glorifying story about himself. I do not. I think John Douglas is one of the real heroes of our times by creating profiling for the FBI and making it possible to arrest so many brutal murders.

We can sense that experience from his non-fiction books and also from this fiction book. The highlights in this book are when John uses his profiling abilities. It reminds me on the situations when Sherlock Holmes uses his deduction ability. Very believable, exciting and the highlights of this book.

The book is written fine, but for me it was predictable. Maybe from reading too many Agatha Christie books, I had a good sense where the book is heading. Nevertheless it was very entertaining. One negative aspect is the stereotype characters, especially Katie, who was created from male fantasies. Nice though.

Now I will try out the second Broken Wings book. Let''s see how John Douglas has developed as an author in the time between these two books.
