San Diego defense attorney Paul Madriani is still reeling from the trauma of a near nuclear explosion he helped avert at the naval base in Coronado. Threatened by federal authorities to keep quiet about the close call in California, Madriani is now faced with a new problem in the steely-eyed and alluring Joselyn Cole, a weapons control expert, who believes he has to go public with what he knows if they have any hope of stopping a similar event in the future. But Madriani has been linked to a murder of a Washington, D.C. political staffer, and authorities believe a shadowy figure called Liquida-a hired assassin known as 'the Mexicutioner'-may be responsible. And this man, as the last survivor of the attack in San Diego, might be driven by a bizarre and horrifying, star-crossed vendetta and might now be looking for Madriani himself. What Madriani and Cole begin to fear is that this madman has joined forces with a demented former radical known as the Old Weatherman, who intends to pull the city-and the country-into a vortex of terror before Madriani and Cole can find answers to the enigma that is 'the rule of nine.'

Even though I am a fan of Steve Martini I could not finish it! It didn't hold my attention at all!

Fast paced, lots of action, slim on mystery. Good reader.

Part two of trilogy finds the hero Madriani weakend by women, incompetence and his own stupidity in some instances. Yet, this story manages to save some face, little at the end. The reader will be saying, how can you be so dense at times. Because Martini is a better writer than this, 7 of 10 stars
