My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have a new hero--Postal Inspector Owen B. Rutherford! Sure, he's no matinee idol, but when it comes to protecting our mail, he's the man! Dang, I had no idea what postal inspectors do for us. They're clearly the unsung heroes of the federal system.
However, he's not the hero of The Program. Tim Rackley is back, with a shot at redeeming himself with the U.S. Marshal's program. This time it's undercover infiltrating a cult, and it's spooky how the cults suck people in. You can read this and understand how it could happen to almost anyone.
Tim's got to walk a tightrope of staying in character while looking for ways to crack the cult open, but The Teacher, the leader, is very good at covering his tracks with legalities.
It's a snappy read, and once again people who you don't expect to have much depth surprise you. I'm becoming a real fan of Hurwitz's work, and I intend to read more this summer.
