    One thought on “Hot Start”

    1. Audiobook. I don’t know if it was the narrator or just the silliness of the story, but I finally abandoned this after making it about 75% through. I just couldn’t get into the plot with its contrived features: the ex-government assassin who’s now a flight instructor approaching penury but with multiple contacts in the agency; the friend’s son accused of murder and overwhelming evidence he did it; the corrupt Congressman; the coincidences that are too numerous to count, and the landlady w [...]

    2. Cordell Logan is an aspiring Buddhist, pet project of a cat called Kiddiot, dweller in a converted garage, sleeper in hammocks in the summer’s heat, good friend to his ailing landlady, and an ex-military intelligence expert. He’s also the narrator and protagonist in author David Freed’s mystery series, which goes from strength to strength as each new novel is released. In Hot Start, it’s not just the weather or the engine that’s hot – not just California’s rich and beautiful either [...]

    3. Everything about Cordell Logan appeals to me. Cordell is never driven by anything other than the search for the truth and he manages to find the bad guys in a roll-with-the-punches Indiana Jones action kind of way that keeps the action taut, a lot of times amusing, and always irresistible to read. Cordell's nearly Buddhist philosophy and always kind heart makes for the very best hero ever!!

    4. I enjoyed reading this one. A great story with a few twist and turns that will keep the reader on the seat of his pants. Hard to put down. But I read this one after reading "The Kill Circle" which is book #6. These books can be read as a stand alone but why would anyone want to do that?

    5. Another great Cordell Logan mystery. I'm listening to these & think the reader increases my enjoyment of them.

    6. 4.5 stars.Hot Start is an intriguing whodunit starring flight instructor and amateur sleuth Cordell Logan. This fifth installment in David Freed's fantastic series can easily be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend the previous novels as well.In the midst of a stretch of unseasonably hot and miserable temperatures, Cordell, at the behest of his former father in law Gil Carlisle, finds himself investigating the double homicide of big game hunter and safari charter owner Roy Hollister and [...]

    7. When big game hunter Roy Hollister and his beautiful wife are killed, it's not much of a surprise since so many people hated him for organizing hunting parties to kill innocent animals. But when Dino Birch, an animal rights activist is arrested for the murders, Cordell Logan finds himself in the middle of the investigation. Birch is related to Logan's ex-father-in-law, who convinces Logan to look into whether he really is guilty. Things get much more complicated when a popular congressman and a [...]

    8. *I won this book for free in a Giveaway in exchange for an honest opinion*Really enjoyable mystery. Very well done. Great characters, interesting plot, good suspense. I genuinely had no idea what to expect. Lots of twists and turns. I haven't read any of the other Cordell Logan books, but this worked well as a standalone. I would recommend reading from the start of the series, though, because they sound interesting! I might have to read another book from the series. Highly recommend!

    9. If you like the escape and pace of mystery thrillers but wish that most weren’t so trite and disengaged, then try David Freed. The Cordell Logan series is intelligent, solid storytelling. The first person narrative strikes the right balance between the lead character’s superheroism and his humble struggle to become a better man. Fun references to Buddhist and other philosophers are scattered throughout giving the story charm and a deeper human context. Overall this a solid, entertaining read [...]

    10. I won a book in a giveaway that was lost in the mail. The publisher was nice enough to send this book in its place. I'll review as soon as I read it.
