The hard-hitting sequel to groundbreaking military adventure Dead Six.
On the far side of the world, deep in former Soviet Central Asia, lies a stronghold called the Crossroads. It is run with an iron fist by a brutal warlord calling himself Sala Jihan. He is far more than a petty dictator, for Jihan holds the fate of nations in his grasp. To save a world slipping into chaos, Jihan must either fall or be controlled.
One secret military organization called Exodus plans to see that this happens. For this mission, they need the best of the best. Unfortunately the man they need is rotting in an almost unassailable foreign prison.
Enter Lorenzo, thief extraordinaire. Lorenzo is now retired, happily married, and living in paradise. His Achilles heel: an FBI-agent brother who has gone missing - disappeared into the stronghold of warlord Jihan. Exodus promises to give Lorenzo his chance to rescue his brother if and only if Lorenzo will perform one service for them: break Michael Valentine out of a captivity from which no one has ever emerged alive.
And if Lorenzo can accomplish that - well then, the Crossroads awaits the sword of Exodus.

Can't think of one because I never read a book that had the main characters hate each other so much but do good things for those who care for the other.
When Lorenzo got Lin to dress like a hoochie.
The whole mission to get the guard so they can free Valentine was funny from start to finish.
Pinochet is the master here in this story as it's teller. However, here I find a little too much win by the bad guys and not nearly enough to balance by the good guys. Might this be the 'Two Towers' of the series?
It's a fun listen. Great action and it moves along. It makes me wish Crossroads existed for real. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

His performance was GREAT!
The bad guys win, the good guys lose, one of the heroes dies (we think)...this leaves a very bad taste in one's mouth. The first book was fabulous...unless there is a third book where the hero is somehow resurrected and returned to his regular self, I will not be listening to anymore of Larry's books!
A good bit of it would be changed; too much to mention here.
I hate books that do not have endings. Also, way too much time spent in describing armaments and fighting, too little time devoted to plot and characters.
I came for the Wit, Dialog and Action,
but this book offers less of that and more Philosophizing and Sermons!
This is still a Good book, but not a Great book like "Dead Six"!
I'm really annoyed about spending 17+hours only to end with cliff hangers. From the beginning of the book we are searching for Lorenzo brother not only do we not find him but we left L in the hands of the villains and Valentine with another crisis on his hands. I feel ripped off. I enjoyed the story and narrative but won't listen to future books in this series for fear of more cliffhangers.
