Nearing the end of a suspended jail sentence should unlock a brighter future for CJ Davis, only the chip on his shoulder is as hard to shift as his bad reputation. Born into a family of career criminals who live down Davis Road, an address the cops have dubbed Davis Row, his name alone is like a rap sheet that makes optimism impossible. Brand-new parole officer Noah Huxley is determined to see the good in men like CJ. After all, he knows firsthand that bad things can happen to good people.

After surviving a horrific chemical attack that turned him into a metahuman, Captain Jamie Callahan got a second lease on life. For three years he’s been working for the Metahuman Defense Force and leading Alpha Team - all against the wishes of his family.

When a mission to take down a terrorist cell brings that same stranger - Kyle Brannigan - back into his world, Jamie’s life gets complicated.

First I don't usually listen to Horror books, so please understand that as I reviewing this book.
Second, mispronouncing several words is really really annoying to the listener: Mishawaka, Indiana is pronounced Mish-a-WA-Ka.
Third, the chapter 3 sounded at first to be a scene that was not even in the same book, but i did get the gist of it when listening to the rest of the chapters. It was just so out of place, it was jarring.
All in all, this was a weird book with a ton of mistakes in police procedures and a really odd writing style.
I am glad I received a free code for it because I would not have ever bought this book on the blurb I saw alone.
