CFBA Tour for Nothing to Hide by Mark Bertrand

This week, the

is introducing
Nothing to Hide
Bethany House Publishers (July 1, 2012)

J. Mark Bertrand


J. Mark Bertrand lived in Houston, where the series is set, for fifteen years,

earning an MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Houston. But after

one hurricane too many he left for South Dakota. Mark has been arrested

for a crime he didn't commit, was the foreman of one hung jury and served

on another that acquitted Vinnie Jones of assault. In 1972, he won an

honorable mention in a child modeling contest, but pursued writing instead.


A grisly homicide. An international threat.

The stakes have never been higher for

Detective Roland March.

The victim's head is missing, but what intrigues Detective Roland March

is the hand. The pointing finger must be a clue--but to what? According

to the FBI, the dead man was an undercover asset tracking the flow of

illegal arms to the Mexican cartels. To protect the operation, they want

March to play along with the cover story. With a little digging, though, he

discovers the Feds are lying. And they're not the only ones.

In an upside-down world of paranoia and conspiracy, March finds himself

dogged by injury and haunted by a tragic failure. Forced to take justice into

his own hands, his twisting investigation leads him into the very heart of

darkness, leaving March with nothing to lose--and nothing to hide.

MY THOUGHTS-Yikes! Every time I read a book by Mark Bertrand I have to remind myself he isn't a cop. This book was no different as I felt like the author knew exactly what he was talking about and many times this comes from a police background. This book was almost a grand finale for Roland March and I am just hoping there is another one in the works. Not sure what I would do without staying up late to solve a case with Roland:) Anyways, an excellent book with a lot of depth in it. You think you have the case solved and then Mark throws another spin that makes you go back and make sure you have the right person. Definitely better if you read after the others because there are some recurring characters. Can't wait for what comes next!

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
