The Man in the Mountain by Doug Lucas

4 1/2 STARS I believe this is the first 1/2 star I have given. I kept on debating between 4 or 5 stars so split in the middle. At first some of the characters did not really like but the more you know the more I liked them. Thier were some I could never have come up with. I did wonder about all the authors everyone was talking about and did guess right on some. Did not want to put the book down once I started reading it. Had to wait and see what would happen next. It is very entertaining novel. Lots of drama,action and little romance thrown in. I would love to live in a mountain like that but could never afford it. A lot of good guys in the story but so many rotten apples were in it too. Yeah for the good guys that were good. This is a novel that anyone can enjoy and I recommend it to those who like suspense,adventure. Hooker, DEA & FBI Agents,drug dealers, drug cartel & assasin and lots of authors & books thrown into the mix. Deanna Flores is FBI Agent who is in isolated cabin guarding Marcie is a hooker who saw the only cop who treated her respect murdered by a drug dealer. Deanna hates being stuck in the back of beyond with no cell service. While her partner leaves to run errarnds. Marci sees a photo in the paper and reconizes three of the men who were thier the day the cop was killed. They are DEA & FBI agents and one of them is best friend of her partner they decide to grab what they can and take off. Looking back they see cars and truck at the cabin. They are running now for thier lives and arguing about books and authors they like. Aaron is with the drug dealer and a couple of other cops working for him. Aaron is not trusted completly by the drug dealer. They know he is a DEA agent but dont know that he is undercover with his bosses knowledge. Aaron thinks either his boss or someone higher up in another agency is on the take. because the cabin that is the safe house is owned by the same drug dealer who wants to kill the witness. Aaron knows Marci saw him right after the murder chasing her. So instead of guarding the clearing like the drug dealer told him he is following the women and hope to guide them and cover up some of the trail they left behind. He knows that if he just appears the agent could kill him. He also mentions different characters in novels that he likes. Thier are different levels of drug dealer who are involved in the chase of the women. I was given this ebook to read from the author on Librarything in exchange of honest review.
