9780061096228: The Price of Blood

In the last 20 years Phil Broker has pulled himself together. A good, tough undercover cop in Minnesota, he knows the difference between a sucker punch and a lucky break. And although he's put his Vietnam years behind him, the grown daughter of his old commander has been dogging his heels for months. Nina Pryce is trying to exonerate her dishonorably discharged dead father and -- more importantly -- find the 10 tons of gold he helped liberate during a U.S. commando mission.

Broker doesn't like the smell of it. Still, Nina has her charms, and can be very persuasive. The only problem is, two of Broker's old army buddies have beaten them to the search. Rich, sadistic Cyrus La Porte has the means, but no direction.Convicted thief Jimmy Tuna has a line on the location but no cash. Jimmy's a dying man with nothing left to win -- or lose. And Broker and Nina know both men would kill them for the slimmest chance to take it all.

A riveting suspense novel that reads like a thrilling treasure hunt with a murderous legacy that echoes down from the past.

Review:

In just two books (Hunter's Moon was his first book), Chuck Logan has established himself as a thriller writer with all the necessary gifts for greatness: a strong and original voice, a formidable narrative engine, and a heart big enough to give life to a wide variety of characters. At the center of the story are Phil Broker, an undercover cop in a small Minnesota town, and Nina Pryce, a career soldier and the daughter of the man who shaped Broker's life in Vietnam. Both are fascinating people, bristling with edges and attitude, and Logan has surrounded them with dozens of other characters of equally surprising depth. Add to that a crackerjack treasure hunt and a trip to present-day Vietnam that reeks of reality and you've got what could well be the best thriller of the year.
