Ex-military bodyguard, Ryan Lock, is back, in the sequel to the UK's best-selling debut thriller of 2010.
Elite bodyguard Ryan Lock has become a convicted felon, sentenced to twenty years in Pelican Bay, California's notorious supermax prison. Or at least that's what the United States Justice Department wants everyone to believe.
In reality, he's there to protect one man. Frank 'Reaper' Hays is a founding member of the white supremacist Aryan Brotherhood, and is about to give evidence against members of his own gang for the brutal slaying of an undercover ATF agent and his family.
And just to make an already difficult job next to impossible, Reaper refuses to go into protective custody. In a world dominated by violent men, where alliances are constantly shifting and no one can be trusted, Lock knows that he faces the toughest assignment of his career - just to stay alive...

Superficial character development. There is no depth to the characters, not enough reader/listener connection to care about what happens to them. This leads to a lack of tension and suspense. Plot is a bit ridiculous. The book is the opposite of a page turner. I could have stopped listening at any time. I did listen to the first book in this series first and I think it is better than this one but still not stellar. I had hoped I would see improvement from the writer Sean Black but alas it did not improve. Steven Cooper's performance was adequate. I think there are better stories in this genre and recommend Mason Cross, Brad Taylor, Brett Battles, Michael Connelly, Brian Haig, and Alex Berenson .
