His programs were chewing on data, and what they were finding was being evaluated as ominous. The swing shift operators knew that he was here, but no one had stopped by to say hello. He had no friends here.

This book is for Lorrel and for our son, Kevin, whose imagination is second only to his kindness. Special thanks to Dr. Michael Mattice for his kind and patient help.

Gina Hagberg-Ballinger. He let himself into the overstuffed two-room apartment. This was the way the man lived. The rooms were like a furnace, but filled with the odors of musty books, pipe tobacco and something else. The hairs on the back of his neck bristled. Step by inexorable step, the assassin-a sleeper agent for all these years-is awakened from a holding state of mind. With Kirk McGarvey's return to action after a one-book hiatus, old pro Hagberg (Joshua's Hammer, 2000, et. shows that his hand's still firm on the thriller. McGarvey is 50 now and graying at the.

He brought the Bloody Marys into the large, comfortable family room off the kitchen. Katy was hunched in front of the shelves below the television looking through their videotapes and disks. She was dressed in CIA sweats and fuzzy slippers which made her seem smaller, younger, defenseless. McGarvey stopped and looked at her. She was working very hard to make their marriage work this time against terrible odds.

I've read a bunch of David Hagberg's McGarvey books and loved them all. Until this one. The Kill Zone is simply awful, with none of the pizzazz and page-turning suspense that made the others so enjoyable.

In place of that, Hagberg has given us grass-growing, minute-by-minute excruciatingly detailed moments of angst, by McGarvey, his wife, his daughter, his weird computer-geek-guru friend Otto Rencke, Rencke's girlfriend Louise Horn, his staff--all to reach a climax that was both predictable and several bridges too far from the verisimilitude authors need in order to have the reader "willingly" suspend his or her belief.

Added to that, the book is mostly exposition and recapitulation, as if it were one huge book report by a not very talented college student writing a bad thesis. Also, lots of people die in this book--but although they were presumably loyal friends and employees, no one sheds a tear or even voices regret. In the end, it is all about McGarvey and family.

I stayed with the book until the very very end, hoping that it would have a spark that led me to it in the first place. Sadly, it did not. Ugh!

You may have noticed that I am in the distinct minority with my rating of this novel, but I call them like I see them and this is how I see this. I have loved the Kirk McGarvey novels by David Hagberg and I was really looking forward to this one. In this story, McGarvey has been nominated by the president to be head of the CIA (DCI). Some in the Senate Committee that hold hearings on his nomination are less than pleased with this turn of events, but someone else is even less enthusiastic and attempts are made on McGarvey's life as well as that of his wife, daughter and his trusted side kick Otto Rencke. It seems that long ago in Russia a plot was hatched to kill McGarvey if he was ever nominated to this position and trick is to find out who it is that is trying to kill him and how they are planning to do it. I found the plot to be very slow moving, the characters somewhat wooden and the whole story to be a huge disappointment. The mystery of who is trying to kill him doesn't turn out to be that much of a mystery either. I wish I could report otherwise, but that is how I see it.

CIA Directorate Kirk McGarvey must find out who is attempting to kill him and his family before it's too late! Could the secrets lie in the time he spent during the cold war as a field operative! David Hagberg delivers a gripping novel with an interesting conclusion!

Good from the beginning to the end
I have enjoyed lots of stories by David Hagberg (Sean Flannery).This one is about in the middle of the pack.But, still better than the works of many authors. It was slow getting into but definitely picked up good steam about half way thru. All in all..good..not great.
