Publisher Comments:


Even trained warriors often feel an internal blink of resistance when the killing takes place within the zone of body heat.

Not Ray Favor. He killed with the easeof flipping a light switch.


A decade ago, Ray Favor was a remorseless killer for theBlack Ops cell Bravo One Nine. He did what he was hiredt o do out of patriotism and duty. Now, having amassed a fortune but deeply troubled by his past and suspicious of his own nature, Favor is motivated by something more: a chance to r ight the wrongs he committed and restore balance .He get s that chance deep in the Philippines , where thedisappearance of two teenagers leads Favor and his Bravo team to confront an illegal operation by the Russian mob—and an evil so deplorable that it can only be righted by the means Favor once used to wreak destruction. Now, driven by a hungry sense of purpose, Ray Favor will seek retribution by any means necessary. And exact a violent justice without mercy—or regret.

First in Phillip Finch’s stunning new series, Devil’s Keep is a suspense-packed international thriller introducing a powerful, complex, and memorable action hero.


The first in an international action-adventure thriller series featuring the ultra-secret black ops cell Bravo One Nine. Original.

Lynne Perednia, June 15, 2010 (view all comments by Lynne Perednia)
Ray Favor is very, very good at what he does, making money, sensing profit in deals well before others. It's getting to be very, very old hat though. What's left after a guy has made a fortune several times over? Especially if the way he makes that fortune is not what he was originally trained to do.

Favor is one of four members of Bravo Cell One Nine, a special ops quartet that accomplished any number of complicated, dangerous and slightly sordid missions over the years. They've gone their separate ways, except Ray got the girl, but have remained in touch. He was a killing machine but walked away from that job. Now he's ready to walk away from making money. It's all got to mean a little more than being good at it just for the sake of being good at it.

When team member Alex Mendonza hears from a distant relative in the Philippines that a teenage girl has disappeared in Manila when she left her village for a well-paying job, Ray and the others are in. Their mission gets even more urgent when her brother, searching for her in the big city, also disappears.

The reader knows that the teens have been whisked away to an island in the middle of nowhere, kept alone but healthy. When a captive begins to receive injections, he or she soon disappears.

Finch is adept at setting up the situation and moving the action between the two main storylines as the Bravo team searches for the teens. Why the young people are being abducted may not be much of a secret, but that's not the point. It's the adrenaline rush that matters. And Finch is terrific at delivering.

The author plays fair as the plot unfolds, something novels as action-packed as this one don't always deliver. Finch also sets up the opportunity for further novels. They would be welcome both as fast-paced thrillers and the chance that Favor, a rock climber who tries to conquer the most dangerous places, will explore whether he can redeem his past as he carves out a different path.
