Chuck Logan (Author), J. Book 3 of 6 in the Phil Broker Series. I had read it when it first came out, but had leant my copy to someone and never got it back. I especially enjoy reading books with the setting in Minnesota, like this one, Wm. Kent Krueger, John Sandford, etc.

Vapor Trail is a high adrenaline thriller. Vapor Trail had me thinking this would be a plot based on air combat. Previous Logan books I've read were primarily about the military. This isn't, and Boker seems pretty disinterested in the plot, so it should not be a surprise if the reader looses interest also. For me this was more a yawner than a thriller.

In the last 20 years Phil Broker has pulled himself together. A good, tough undercover cop in Minnesota, he knows the difference between a sucker punch and a lucky break. Phil's estranged wife, army Maj. Nina Pryce, is back in the . and involved in a high stakes antiterrorist mission with crusty old ex-Special Forces Col.

She wore a sleeveless blouse, clam diggers, and sandals as she sauntered across the steamy playing field. Just another mom. That’s what the prospect probably thought. Gathering the kids around him on the sidelines. Boys and girls in yellow T-shirts and baseball caps. Tigers, the script on the shirts said. Watch his hands and his eyes. The way they move among the young bodies. George Talbot was a T-ball coach

Vapor Trail - Chuck Logan. But it was a gesture. He was more custodian than clergyman. She trailed her hand over the arched stone entry as she walked through the door. Her hand came away cool. She did not touch the fount of holy water.

When the phone wakes Phil Broker on the morning of his forty-eighth birthday -- six months removed from his surviving a January cold snap that (in Absolute Zero) nearly claimed his life -- it's already ninety-two degrees. It's July, and Stillwater, Minnesota, finds itself in the middle of the worst heat wave in local memory.

The news on the phone has nothing to do with his birthday wishes, however. A year earlier, an angry citizen served as jury and executioner by pumping twelve bullets into a known pedophile -- and in the process became a folk hero, dubbed "the Saint" by locals. The investigation quickly went cold, and ever since rumors have circulated that the real reason the Saint hasn't been apprehended is that he -- or she -- is a cop.

Now a priest has been murdered. Was the priest a sexual predator? Is the Saint back? The caller begs for Broker's help, but as new victims start turning up, Broker wonders if he's been set up to catch a bullet for a scandal that threatens to bring down the Stillwater Police Department.

Vapor Trail is a high adrenaline thriller. I have to start this review with that. Chuck Logan's books, his Phil Broker series, just gets better and better with each installment. And right now, Vapor Trail is my favorite.

After a police investigation, a pedophile is arrested. Charged. During the hearing --during what should be an open and closed case-- there is a problem. Ronald Dolman, the accused, walks free. It doesn't matter that he committed horrible crimes.

Unhappy with a lack-luster judicial system, the Saint takes matters into their own hands. This vigilante goes after Dolman. Kills him. And leaves a St. Nichols (the patron Saint for children) medallion in the vile, scumbag's mouth. The city goes wild. Everyone starts wearing Saints jerseys, and jackets, and hats. The police investigate the murder, but aren't really all that concerned with catching a suspect.

Until a few years later. A priest is murdered inside the confessional of a rickety, run down church. The St. Nicholas medallion is left in his mouth. It looks like the Saint might be back in town, back for another round. The police want to keep things hush-hush from the press, from the citizens.

Calling in a favor, Phil Broker is asked to assist on the case. Ex-cop, ex-military, Broker knows the ins and outs. Wearing a temporary badge he works at wrangling in suspended officer Harry Cantrell. Cantrell was always considered a suspect, that he could be the Saint. Never proven, Cantrell's alcoholism has hindered the man's work. Broker, maybe a guy Cantrell hates more than anyone, is sent to find his old friend.

A killer is on the loose. There are targets getting hit. Cantrell knows something about the new cases, he knows something about the Saint. The problem is he keeps alluding Broker. At any moment the press is going to catch on. Pandemonium is a given. Time is running out . . .

Vapor Trail was non-stop tension. The suspense built and built, and built. I am reserving my comments on Nina Pryce (Broker's wife) until my next review. I dislike her. . . lots!

I discovered Chuck Logan through a forward written by Michael Connelly in his latest book. The first book was slow to start but by the third chapter, I was hooked. I proceeded to purchase everything he's written. This book was full of Broker's angst and kept me reading late into the night. I loved the tiny shout out to John Sanford with the mention of Davenport at the BCA. all in all, a sound read. On to the next - AFTER THE RAIN.

Chuck Logan is one of those rare talents that just keep getting better as they go, even though they started off with a bang. You can read any of his first novels, and get the same feeling that he's been there, lived it, and has inherited the story-teller's gene needed to make it real for the reader. Great, believable characters, incisive writing, a very much appreciated brevity of language, and intelligent plots grace all of his books. I read an earlier review that panned "VAPOR TRAIL" based on a lack of descriptive prose about Stillwater, Minnesota. Time to read some nonfiction, pal. I read Chuck Logan and John Sanford for gripping suspense, action, humor, and, HELLOOOOO, entertainment, not for a lesson in geography.
Well, "Vapor Trail" has it all, in spades, ( as they say), and I enjoyed it tremendously!
One thing more....Logan is on my very short list of authors that I'll buy without bothering to read the blurb on the back page. He writes it, I'll enjoy it. Buy "Vapor Trail" without reservations. You won't be disappointed.

Definitely not one of Chuck Logan's best. Still baffled as to where the title came from. Vapor Trail had me thinking this would be a plot based on air combat. Previous Logan books I've read were primarily about the military. This isn't, and Boker seems pretty disinterested in the plot, so it should not be a surprise if the reader looses interest also. For me this was more a yawner than a thriller. I still like the author a lot and expect to experience some better reads from him in the future.

Wow! Talk about twists and turns and a cliff hanger ending!! This book has it all! I am reading all of Mr. Logan's books in order and his writing and story lines just keep getting better and better. This is another non stop read and you just can't put it down as the action keeps going and going. Very nice touch to mention Lucas Davenport in the book as Mr. Logan is friends with John Sandford.

This book keeps your attention and doesn't let it go till the end and then leaves you wanting more. Excellent book!

Teddy Roosevelt said that the Badlands look like Edgar Allan Poe sounds. This reviewer says that Chuck Logan writes like a river - beautifully flowing and yet prone to rapid and violent tempests.
Logan's Phil Broker is back. This time, it's summer - and those 10,000 Lakes, the headwaters of the Mississippi, and other ponds and streams make Minnesota one huge humidified hothouse. Minnesota native Logan says of our seismic seasonal temperature shifts: out in the winter snow, shock could be a sheet of fire. Now, in this heat, it wrapped him in cold shivers.
This encounter with Broker - on the trail of "the Saint," a vigilante assassin out stalking and slaying those suspected of child predation and abuse -
is indeed a tantalizing chill-producing shocker. Reviewed by TundraVision

Logan has the knack of making his characters totally believable. Every person in this story is part and parcel like someone you know. His story Is also one that could be from anywhere and happen to anyone.
I just finished reading this book, so I'm back to reading "Hunter's Moon, knowing all the while I should have read it first. Now I'm in a pickle,
I have to wait for his next book, #7!
