Good book overall. Carla Windermere was a great character.

read this book, before I read the first in the series. Makes me want to go back, and read the first. I liked the heroes, Stevens and Windermere, in this story, and I had no sympathy at all for the criminal. Like that the author is Canadian, though the book is set is set in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

I found the book like several people, very disappointing. The writing was very juvenille. There was no character development which i expected, being it is his second novel with these characters. Plus he did not do his research, it seems. I don't believe that the police would handle matter the way he has portrayed. And other areas, were also not researched - He referenced "the small, child size footprints", which a fifteen year old, basketball player supposedly made. Please, have you seen the size of shoes, fifteen year old girls have!

So could not recommend it

I agree with everything Janice wrote. This is just dribble.

A very good read from a promising 'new' writer of crime thrillers.
Style-wise he reads like an earlier Baldacci, riveting/page-turning - I read it in two days!

Having read 'The professionals', I was looking forward to Laukkanen's sophomore effort. Big disappointment. ' Criminal enterprise' started well but too soon became more like a screenplay for a really violent action movie. Disappointing.

Fast-paced thriller. Some of the connections defy belief and latterly the violence seems gratuitous. Topical take on what people may be capable of when their circumstances change - what lurks beneath?
