Hard Latitudes Reviews
The writing blends beauty and threat, raising the story high above everyday crime dramas, not just in its scope, but also in language and allusion.
Hard Latitudes is the fourth of Baron R. Birtcher’s Mike Travis series, but readers can easily pick it up withough having read the others. Characters are introduced with just enough information to make them real, with perfect dialogue and interactions that keep them real. The places are gorgeous and complete. It’s a perfect blend of Hawaii’s freedom with LA’s police-patrol; of mystery, police procedural, family drama, moral dilemma and compelling literature.
