    1. I get a little tired of marital discord between crie fiction protagonists and their variously estranged spouses. And the relationship between Broker and Nina has always struck me as a semi-incredible one. But in this book Logan plays it to good and relevant effect. This is a good read.

    2. Making my way through the Chuck Logan library, and enjoying the journey! Phil Broker is quickly becoming one of my favorite fictional characters, putting him just behind the likes of Easy Rawlins and Mitch Rapp.In my last review (Vapor Trail), I said I would talk more about Phil Broker's wife, Nina Pryce. I didn't want to get into it then, for that review, because at the time I had already started reading After the Rain, and my emotions were hot. Capital H. O.T. So in this review I will cover my [...]

    3. Loved this book. Scary plot that makes you think it could happen and what if it did? Love Phil, for all his shortcomings, he's a helluva man. Page turner in it's truest form. Excellent.

    4. This story fits into the thriller group more than a cozy mystery. The characters give the reader pause in terms of what they do and accomplish, and the setting is North Dakota. copy right 2004

    5. Simply awful. From time to time as I walk around the library I’ll pick up a book by an author I’m unfamiliar and try him or her out. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I recently tried Chuck Logan’s “After the Rain.’ This time not only didn’t it work out but I wasted 2 hours out of my life I’ll never have back. I respect all authors. Or try to. I try to find something positive but in this case, it was impossible. This book was just total garbage. I am a big fan of this gen [...]

    6. The character Phil Broker gets sucked into an investigation that his wife is running on some terrorists up north when his wife uses their 7 year old daughter as part of her cover. Number 5 in the series, I somehow skipped this one and went to the last one. I am glad I caught this and did a bit of backtracking. Logan has written a great series filled with some really interesting characters and this one is no exception. This wife, part time at that, of Brokers is a real strange one. Sometimes you [...]

    7. This book is the best of the Phil Broker series. By now if you have read the books in order (I made the mistake of not doing that) you know these are complex and interesting characters. This plot is original and believable all while being unbelievable at the same time. Great descriptions of the Upper Midwest / Southern Canadian landscapes. This was actually the first book in the series I read, someone had a reviewers copy and it looked interesting so I read it. I am about to reread it after read [...]

    8. #5 in the Phillip Broker series. Finalist 2005 Shamus Award for Best Novel. Broker continues this action packed series after his wife dropped his daughter off in ND at the end of Vapor Trail (2003). Phillip Broker arrives in ND to pick up his daughter, Kit. He finds that his wife and her Delta team members are there to intercept a nuclear shipment by terrorists and wanted to use Phil and Kim as cover. The bad guys don't buy the cover and figure Nina as a cop from the outset. A cat and mouse game [...]

    9. Knight-errant Phil Broker and estranged special forces wife Nina Pryce become involved in anti-terrorist activiteis on the northern plainsMaj. Price and her group also involve their child Kit for window dressin in the undercover operationIt all takes off on a page turner with plenty of twists and fascinating characters on both sidesI particularily enjoy the local flavor developed in the characters personally having deep midwestern roots

    10. A thriller envolving a terrorist plot between a homicidal maniac and lone terrorist, with plans to blow up a nuclear reactor. Vietnam Vet and retired undercover police officer Phil Broker must rescue the country and his family, fast paced action, and subtle twists that make you turn the page in anticipation.

    11. This isn't a new novel, but it's a pretty good yarn about terrorism coming over the border from Canada into, of all places, North Dakota, to cause an explosion near a nuclear power plant near the Twin Cities in Minnesota.Good characters you'll care about, and that'll keep the pages turning.Fair warning: It's more than just a little violent.

    12. I had never read anything by this author but the action kept you interested in finding out what was going to happen. About Nina Price & Phil Broker, husband & wife, who are trying to find the H bomb that they were told is going to explode in Northern USA.

    13. Enjoyed listening to this book and I like this series. While it is predictable I like the characters. The audio book voices are well done. Recommend starting at beginning as later books do give earlier stories away.

    14. I read Homefront and loved it so much that I then decided to work my way through the rest of Chuck Logan's books. This was a really interesting book with some extremely creepy characters. I definitely plan to read another.

    15. The 5th book in the excellent Phil Broker series did not disappoint. I really like this author and his books. I'd rate this book a solid 4 - 4 1/2 stars.

    16. A typical entertaining thriller. Nothing unique or significant that differentiates it from any other typical entertaining thriller.
