I totally enjoyed the Copper Shield and found myself deciding to get up at 7:am instead of sleeping in for an other hour just to read a couple more chapters, on my laptop. I work in the Pacific NW and have travelled most of the Highways that intersect and pass many of the Historical Points of interest identified in the story line. My next trip home will take much longer as I have a nagging desire to explore the area more. Terry Hansen
