This book was given to me by the author, Mr. Halverson for review. The thoughts that are expressed are solely mine and mine alone. Now on the review...

This was another slam dunk for Mr. Halverson. Now I know most of you are thinking right now... This is not Cecile's normal reading habits and a book like this does not fit in her normal range reading material. But I read Mr. Halverson's first book and now I have read this one. And let's just say I can not wait to see the next Kane Silver adventure

Axle Hunter was just ten years old when he lost his mother in a plant crash. Axle’s mother had won a trip. Together she and Axle was flying when their plane crashed in the middle of the ocean in Thailand. Axle was the only survivor. Axle travels many miles and comes upon an encampment. There he is met by Choy and Ling. Two of Chang So’Ming’s employees. Chang runs an opium farm.

When Change meets Axle he feels sorry for him and adopts him as his son. Axle has grown up into a man and great fighter.

Then I couldn't put it down. I even fell asleep with it on my night stand. I'm not one

This is the second book from Wade J. Halverson that I have read. He's a very good writer, and this series of books is loaded with thrills, suspense and mystery. As Axle is devastated by the brutal deaths of his family, he is looking for some help. He heads to the one man that he can trust, Kane Silver. Kane has a business called Securities & Such. Along with Kane there is Valentinao and Si'Ling. Hank is the one that oversees them all, kind of like a dad. Kane, Valentinao, Si'Ling and Axle st ...more
