The Threat

Poyer, David
Dan Lehman is, detached?, from the Navy, working in Washington D.C. as head of a drug interdiction team for the White House. Through the book he pretty much ends up doing everything ELSE, however!

Words I Had To Look Up:

encaustic tile (pg. 31) -- Ceramic tiles with a decoration made of different colors of clay inlaid into their surface.
Voda gazifie (pg. 115) -- First word is "water", can't find definition for the second word.
Scrum (pg. 287) -- The formation used in the setplay restarting play after a knock-on or forward pass.

Quote:

Dan tries out his French --
Fevier made a half-concealed grimace, as if tasting a bad peanut. "You will excuse me, but perhaps we should conduct our business in English." (pg. 146)

Quote:

Is this the correct word, "deserts?
"We have been fortunate beyond our deserts." (pg. 112)
