I listened to the audiobook.While I wasn't impressed by how the reader read it, the story itself was awesome. I found myself often Saying "Oh wow, whaaat, wth, wtf, and damn".I didn't want to stop listening til the end. It was a cute story, not drawn out with a bunch of back & forth ( do I do it or don't I etc ) It was straight to the point of the matter(s). The characters were believable & relatable . The storyline was complete & believable. Looking for a good read.... This is one!

I like this story. It taught me to handle my business. Secrets rely in other secrets and the truth will come out. I never thought Travis Hunter would take a story that a man would fight for his wife and do anything for his family. The story was good.

This is a quick read. Not a long enough book to flesh out the characters. But, it had all the components for an engaging read.
