Wolf Willett is a successful Hollywood producer. He has been partners with his best friend for years and is married to a beautiful younger woman. He is also a pilot and enjoys flying his own plane.
Ed Eagle is the most successful criminal attorney in Santa Fe. He is confident, almost arrogant, but with very good reason. He is almost unbeatable in the courtroom.
Wolf Willett woke up one morning fuzzier than usual, but shook it off and took off for L.A. Engine trouble forces him to stop near the Grand Canyon where he finds that he lost two days of his life. The next day he reads about his death and that of his wife and best friend in the house he just left. He needs help in the form of attorney Ed Eagle to find out what really happened, and if he was responsible.
This is the first book of the very successful Ed Eagle series. The author has created a masterful plot, building the elements piece by piece into a story that is impossible to put down. Wolf is a sympathetic character even if he is a bit underwhelmed by his wife’s murder. Ed is a dynamic character and clearly a force to be reckoned with. The plot is full of twists and unexpected turns making me eager to find out what was going to happen next. One of my friends once told me that this is the book that got him hooked on Mr. Woods’ work. He was right and I am.
