"Poised to Kill" is a fine story, very well written and excellent in pacing. Lutterman is well in command of his plot and characters. Very satisfying read!

Poised To Kill is the gripping story of corporate executive Hal Dwyer. His twelve-year-old daughter has been kidnaped and the ransom is a top secret anti-missile software. If Hal doesn't steal the software from his defense contractor employer or his daughter will die. The action takes Hal from the corporate boardrooms of California to the wilderness backcountry of Minnesota. Author Brian Lutterman has proven himself to be a master storyteller in this masterfully woven tale of tycoons and terrorists. Poised To Kill is highly recommended reading, especially for enthusiasts of contemporary action/adventure thrillers.
Fast-Paced and Exciting May 10, 2004
I really enjoyed this book....the character was memorable and interesting. The plot had a number of twists and turns - with an unexpected ending. A bit of romance always adds something to a book as well. Great read...I coudnt put it down.
Poised to Please Apr 22, 2004
Lutterman has a gift for keeping the surprises coming until the reader is certain the puzzle has been solved, only to find one, last piece of the puzzle which causes the story to fall satisfyingly in place, just a different place than originally thought. The detailed settings put the reader "in" the story and provides a satisfying framework for the fantastic storylines. If you're not already a Lutterman fan, you will be by the end of this book! When is the next one coming??!!
