This is a great well written triller. I liked the main character, Rowan, even thought his journey became a little darker in this book in the series. he used to be an American hero, now he's edging on vigilante territory. It is still a good triller, and a great edge of your seat, action paked page turner, I enjoyed reading this book, as well as the others in the series, Consumate Betrayel, and A Different Man. the other characters besides Rowan are very realistic and relatable.

I thought the first book was good but the second was even better. The second installment in the story-line continues the dark and dangerous tale. Mary Yungeberg knows how to craft a well-paced story that grabs you and won't let you go. A well-written novel not to be missed.

I recommend this to readers who enjoy a fast-paced thriller.

Favorite characters: Bettina and Chad. There are multiple points in the novel where they melted my heart and had me pulling even more for Good over Bad. There's even one scene that had me in tears. Chad reminded me of the guy in Justified, Deputy Marshall Tim Gutterson who plays Raylan Given's right hand man (when Raylan lets him :) I felt like the secondary characters were even more developed in this book and that's what really made it

His anger and bitterness are affecting Danielle. In turn, she is struggling to come to terms with the violent life that he leads. This comes to a climax when he brutally kills her former employee in an act of retribution. Danielle reacts badly. Her comments convince Mila

Rowan Milani has been working for the previous President as a special black operative and the new President has continued the practice, but the head of The Muslim Brotherhood who is intent on turning the US into an Islamic state has suborned the head of the FBI and the Presidents close advisor and convinced them that Rowan is actually a double agent and working for the terrorists. Rowan has his own agenda and a group of loyal friends who have gotten free from his arrest by the government which i ...more
