Dorow’s characters are well crafted. They are easy to believe, realistic and sympathetic. FBI Agent Jack Miller is a seasoned agent paired with Ross Fruen, a young agent looking to learn the ropes. Their first case together is a tough one. One man, nicknamed The Governor, has robbed several banks. He doesn’t take much money and doesn’t usually kill but the last robbery he inexplicably kills a pregnant young woman. The Governor has a plan and his plan is much bigger than simple bank robberies. Miller and Fruen know that their time is short to find him and when The Governor starts targeting them, time runs out.
Douglas Dorow gives us a fascinating crime to figure out and immerses us in the scenery as well. I was able to lose myself in the process of tracking a criminal and become acquainted with the personal life of Agent Jack Miller. His struggles with family and job were very real. Dorow doesn’t create a superhero but a man with a family and a love for his job.
Some of the things I found endearing about Jack was his humility and his propensity to give everyone nicknames.
Fans of Crime Drama will be happy to welcome Douglas Dorow into the fold!
