Stuart Woods brings back small-town police chief Holly Barker—and her extraordinary Doberman, Daisy—for another exhilarating adventure in this New York Times bestseller.

When Holly Barker’s wedding festivities are shattered by a brutal robbery, she vows to find the culprits. With nothing to go on but the inexplicable killing of an innocent bystander, Holly discovers evidence that leads her into the midst of a clan whose members are as mysterious as they are zealous. Holly’s father, Ham, a retired army master sergeant, is her ticket into their strange world. What he finds there boggles the mind and sucks them all—Holly, Ham, and Daisy—into a whirlpool of crazed criminality from which even the FBI can’t save them...

Baker & Taylor
On the way to her wedding, Chief of Police Holly Barker is sidetracked by a high-tech bank robbery that results in murder, and she, along with her father and her canine companion Daisy, make a startling discovery that plunges them into the very center of psychotic criminality and political motivation. Reprint.

I thought the story began great. I really like Holly. But Orchid Blues was more about her father's work with a subversive group. A good guy, but I wanted to read more about Holly. The end was not as good as his previous book involving Holly. Daisy, her doberman, had no part in the story other than occasional window dressing. The conclusion left a lot of loose threads hanging in the wind.

Fast moving with lots of twist.
Orchid blues introduces my favorite character STONE BARRINGTON.
It also set up for coming series.
This is Stuart Woods at his best.
