Eighteen months have passed since Jake and his daughter endured a harrowing ordeal in the Alabama woods. To save his child, Jake killed two men working with notorious drug runner Ethan “Moon Pie” Daniels. Jake’s grateful that they survived, but can’t shake the feeling that the horror isn’t over and that retribution is coming. His actions cost Moon Pie his best friends and nearly two years of business. Now, on a cold, moonless night deep in the heart of a Mississippi swamp, Moon Pie will pit his thirst for vengeance against the strength of Jake’s love for his family.

Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
When the book first started off, I wasn't sure I was going to like it as much as the first one, but oh, as it went on, I did, I SURE did! Some of the tale is a little far fetched, but hey, who's to say it couldn't happen in the south . . . As for old Moon Pie, there's plenty of redneck, criminals running around down here, all hyped up on drugs, alcohol and their own puffed up image of themselves. And thank God, there are plenty of the good guys, too . . . the good old Bible belt . . . this is a thriller, but also a really GOOD listen with an ending worth the wait . . . and this southern, country gal LOVES an ending she can sink her teeth into.
I'm a narrator for Audible and a lover of recorded fiction in the mystery/thriller genre. A great book needs a great narrator.
The book lost steam in latter chapters.
Liked the book, faced paced with tension around every corner, thought the story lost credibility in closing chapters otherwise would be an overall 5-Star!
I really enjoyed the first book (The Dummy Line) so I had to give this one a listen too. Wow! All the individual threads weaving slowly together until they all come together in a roller coaster ride of a finish. In my estimation - a great book is a book that makes me talk to it out loud - this one did. LOL! It also kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what twist would be next. Loved it!
I really enjoyed The Dummy Line. I couldn't put it down, so I bought the sequel. While this second book is okay, I find myself getting irritated by all the varying storylines. Not enough of Jake in this story. Too much of the retirement home crew. Which meant adding the lawyer. Then there are the Mexicans and Vietnamese.... jeez. Didn't mind the deeper development of Moonpie but it was hard to concentrate on all the characters. Don't get me started on Bailey and Woody and Levi triangle....boring. Jeremy Arthur is a great narrator but even he couldn't make all these storylines work.
Second book delivers!! I do have to admit there are a story line that was a little hard to believe, but just as in life, stranger things have happened. Moon Pie is as bad as they come, truly evil, but Jeremy Arthur makes him sound very sexy, all the while I am hoping he gets his due.
This series is like no other! Original and carefully thought out characters; I was actually upset when the book ended because it was that GOOD!
I own almost 300 audio bookes and this book compares to no other. Oh YEAH, it's that good!
What a great way to read ebooks
Jeremy Arthur does a great job so many characters
The dummy line. First book.in the series.
The audio version is very engrossing every character is very distinct.
Jake Crosby because he never gives up.
