My Review of “Hot Start” by David Freed

David FrHot-Start-cover-259x400-freed-covereed is unusually well equipped to tell tales like the one in his new crime novel, Hot Start.

He won a Pulitzer Prize covering the police for The Los Angeles Times, covered war in Kuwait and Iraq, worked for a government security agency, holds a security clearance from the Department of Defense, and is an experienced pilot. Like his protagonist, Cordell Logan, he owns his own airplane.

The result is another well-written yarn told with both a streak of quirky humor and a sense of authenticity. And like many real-life action heroes — as opposed to most fictional ones — Cordell Logan is as uncomfortable with violence as he is capable of it.
