Keith McKallister is the king of the stoners. You know the type. Every school has one - the hot, fun, dopey guy beloved by the student body but despised by, well, just about everyone else. He spends his early mornings in the ocean and his days trying to get to class on time. Life is as easy as it gets until one poor choice too many catches up with him, and he’s forced to reevaluate his path.

I have loved all these books, but the author re-wrote history in this one and it bugged me. Keith was not the very important part in Jake's recovery that was portrayed in this book. In book 1, Keith is not mentioned in Jake's recovery. It is Emma that Jake remembers sitting in his room reading and just being there. Also, Keith did not tour with Jake in the beginning as was told in this book. In book 1, Jake tells Casey that no one in his family toured with him in the beginning. He only had Lassen. Other than that's loved it

For Raven Black, hunting criminals is second nature. So is denial. It's not easy moving forward with one foot stuck in the past. But a new case offers her a much-needed distraction when Keystone accepts their toughest assignment yet - to track down an elusive criminal who's selling children on the black market. Their investigation leads them deep into the underbelly of the Breed world, a place both treacherous and enticing. With no room for mistakes, Raven makes a tough decision to lock the door to her past before it interferes with her job.

Each book in this series of books is exactly the same and also completely different. I know all the characters, but as each character's story is told, so much more is revealed about his/her life and the lives of the ancillary characters in that particular book. I love how the stories build on themselves until I think I will know, and love, all of the characters quite well by the time I finish the series.

Mac served five years in the army as an infantry officer, with two tours in Afghanistan. He returned with the Silver Star, two Purple Hearts, scars that don't tan, and a boat with a big bank loan.

I couldn't tell that this book was not written by Vince Flynn. What a relief, since I am addicted to these books and Mitch Rapp. I have read all of them now and hope I don't have to wait very long for the next one.
