Special Agent Drew Cady leaves Washington, D.C.. He has spent ten years chasing violent criminals in the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Criminal Investigation Division.

He needs to recover from the stress of a highly active career. He's helping to run his fiancée's resort in northern Minnesota while he puts in part time work on the FBI's Medicare Fraud Strike Force. He has fallen into his new life style very easily.

Unfortunately, a woman's body is pulled from Lake Superior outside of Duluth. Back to slogging through violence, Drew finds that his former boss, Roland June, has killed a fellow agent and stands accused of being a spy. Cady can't believe the man he knows and respects could be a spy and determines to clear his friend's name.

So Cady sets out to help his friend but also to help catch a vicious killer, who has no regard for human life, but just likes the spilling of blood. I was hooked by the second or third page of this well-written mystery. Hard to put down.

The Linchpin by Jeffrey B. Burton is the second of his Agent Drew Cady mysteries – the first being the acclaimed The Chessman. I look forward to the third.
