really liked it

The central story arc concerns a team of one-time hard-ass secret operatives whose brutally effective activities on behalf of the government still echo for their leader. His remorse plus his adrenaline starvation as a civilian (no matter how wealthy) has left a hollow space in his soul. Both of his needs--atonement and action--get met when a young relative of one of his teammates apparently is kidnapped, though not for an immediately known reason. The team goes back into action. Being wealthy, they can draw on resources most people only dream about. The hard cases who kidnapped a number of Filipino young people get the surprise of their lives, while the team gets to exercise its ferocious skills in behalf of innocents..

Finch writes well. The back-story angst gets a little soapy, but the action is solid and the Filipino setting is interesting. The book could easily be a 3-star one, but Finch's skills elevate it to 4.
