Framed for murder and on the run, Scot takes to the towering mountains of Switzerland with beautiful Claudia Mueller of the Swiss Federal Attorney’s Office. Anyway, that’s enough ragging on the book for now. Are there odd Mormons? Sort of a cross between TV’s “24” and a Tom Clancy thriller, the Scot Harvath character is well-written and can be related to; he isn’t a superhero, he makes mistakes losing the President being one of them and now must try to resolve that mistake even when facing obstacle after obstacle.
