I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Beyond Salvation is Book 2 in the Michael Sykora suspense series. My review of Book 1 was posted earlier. Michael, his sort-of girlfriend Nicki, and his hit man friend Sean decide to take down a crazy mega-church preacher who kidnaps and abuses teen girls in order to "save' them. Meanwhile Michael's dad is dying of liver cancer. Michael seeks to find him mother and sister he has not seen since he was a small child. He wants to find them before his dad dies. The novel is set in the Tampa FL area.
The narrator is different from Book 1, but just as good.
