Fangs-Out-Cover-Gif-compatible-1Reviewed by Jessa Larsen

When Dorian Munz, a dead man convicted of murder, is asked if he has any last words, he has more than a few. In the last remaining moment of his life, he spins a tale of innocence and wrongful conviction. Now, Hub Walker, a famous war hero and father of Munz’s victim, wants to hire the one and only Cordell Logan to prove that Munz’s last words were nothing but panicked nonsense.

Walker is married to a former playmate and resides in the luxurious end of San Diego. Logan is quick to take him up on his offer of ten grand to snoop around since he feels this won’t be anything more than a paid vacation and he can definitely use both the pay and the vacation. Unfortunately for him, this is not as cut and dry as it would first appear. Logan quickly finds himself spiraling into all sorts of trouble and danger. Who really killed Walker’s daughter and why? As Logan digs around, it turns out whoever was really behind the senseless violence has no problems engaging in more violence to make sure nobody finds that out.

Fangs Out is a riveting tale of mystery and suspense. Cordell Logan needs the money and inadvertently ends up looking like he’s digging his own grave. We follow Logan as he deals with shady lawyers, an ex-wife, an ex-playmate, a war hero, gangbangers, and local law enforcement. This is definitely a page turner and you become obsessed with finding out who really killed Ruth Walker and why. Logan is one of those characters you’d originally love to hate but end up loving him instead. You really root for him as the hero and hope he comes out on top.

Fangs Out is the second book in the Cordell Logan series and after reading this one, I am definitely going to be grabbing the rest of the set. David Freed is impressively knowledgeable about both military and aviation (as he should be, having experience in both as well as law enforcement). I really got snagged with this one and couldn’t put it down until I finished the book.
