Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Bestseller Gilstrap (Nathan's Run) launches a thriller series following PI Jonathan Grave. Much like Bruce Wayne, Grave is single and rich, uses expensive gadgets and has a vigilante alter ego. Hokey dialogue ('I respect anyone willing to die for a cause.... My goal is to help [terrorists] die for their cause. But I still respect them') hampers an otherwise entertaining read as Grave investigates the disappearance of investigative reporter Tibor Rothman, husband of Grave's ex-wife, Ellen. Sheriff Gail Bonneville of Samson, Ind., is chasing Grave in turn, since a hostage rescue mission he fronted turned into a shootout. Thriller fans may not mind the cheesiness or flat characters like brutish pilot Boxers and sassy computer specialist Venice ('pronounced Ven-EE-chay, by the way'), as this fast-paced tale of violence and revenge is all about plot, of which there is plenty. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

From the author of the "New York Times"-bestseller "Nathan's Run" comes an action-packed novel that goes deep inside the dangerous world of rescue operations--a world where one anonymous hero pays no ransom, takes no prisoners, and breaks every rule. Original.

Kaye, September 2, 2010 (view all comments by Kaye)
This book starts out at a high intensity level and just keeps on going. I could not put the book down. Jonathan Grave is not a super-hero, in fact he has flaws. But, I felt that he believed in the "rightness" of his cause and operation. Some of the characters are more likeable than others, but all are interesting. I really liked this book.
