Publisher's Summary

Who is trying to kill the members of an elite special ops team that worked off the radar in Iraq in the '90s? It's up to Dan Stagg to track down the survivors - the men with whom he stormed an undefended surveillance station, killing everyone inside. And now, many years later, the team is being targeted in what seems like a series of unrelated attacks. Dan teams up with his old comrade Al Benson, once a rising star of the USMC, now a respectable married civilian with a few secrets to hide. As they dig deeper into the secrets of the past, Dan discovers that Benson's looking for more than just answers. An explosive affair threatens everyone's future, and connects Dan to a past he thought he'd left behind.

Don't start here to appreciate Lear

I agree with many reviewers that Dan was a disappointment in this second book of this series. His self centeredness overwhelmed the story, which itself was too long. Too much time was spent in Dan's head what-ifing. There was a bitterness in Dan that made no sense and his decision at the end didn't ring true for his character, at least for me. The way that he dismisses his real affection towards loved ones was disappointing and felt false. I hope Lear continues this story, however. Dan has some growing up to do. I'm still rooting for him.

Great Story.

I enjoyed my second adventure with Major Stagg. The hero remains the gruff outsider with a complicated sense of what is right. The author has had the courage to make him a man of principle, albeit without the sense os sexual decency that would render him too conventional. After all, living happily ever after has its limitations.

Good story, but...

Sorry, Dan is an a**h***!!! Really!!! It's a good story, but definitely not what I expected.

Guilty pleasure

Any additional comments?

James Lear books are a guilty pleasure for me. So I new this book was not going to be a compelling book. The book is sixty percent sex and forty percent plot. The plot is good. The narrator did a great job.
