It has been four years since ex-Navy SEAL Jack Haliday, had an explosive run-in with a biker gang, wounding their leader, Gunner. During those years, Jack had acquired everything he ever wanted: a beautiful wife, daughter, and a lovely home in the suburbs--everything was just about as perfect as it could get, until Gunner returned to twist Jack's world inside-out with a vengeance that he could never have prepared for. Now Jack has a score to settle and he's got some friends to help him do it.
So I want to start by saying this is the first book I have read by author Cindy McDonald and I can honestly tell you I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Wow this book was good. I have been talking about it for days at work with my coworker who loves to read as much as I do. So now onto my review.
Jack Haliday, former SEAL, works in the gang unit at the Rosemount police department and has a lovely wife and daughter. An op that went back years ago has come back to haunt him and causes some serious tragedy in his life. His neighbor always seemed to have a secret and Jack had planned to talk to him about it. Well when danger strikes the Haliday family his neighbor and his team are there to save them, some of them. And to help Jack seek revenge and heal. So that is the super-fast low down of the story. I don’t do spoilers just don’t like them. LOL
I love Jack, what a great character, Cindy does an amazing job building his character as well as the characters of his beautiful little girl Lillian, wife Laura, neighbor Walt and Dr. Rayne Lee. These are to me the main characters of the book. There are quite a few more all very well detailed but the main part involves these characters and the bad guy Gunner and his witch Alicia. Being honest here I don’t like her LOL.
Walt is ex CIA and has a team that does well secret stuff come on you know how it is can’t tell. LOL but Walt and some of his guys come to the rescue when Jack and his family fall prey to Gunner and some of his crew. Going to tell you right now you are going to cry, cry when you see what happens, cry when a big grown man has to tell a little girl sad news, cry when you learn someone’s sad story, cry, cry, cry and yell, scream, shiver in fright for some girls. Yeah you are going to go through a roller coaster of emotions in this book.
I couldn’t put this book down, its fast paced, its chalk full of great story and characters. The day is saved but not without casualties for sure. But wow what a powerful story – excellent job. Off to get the next book To The Breaking Point
