Explosive

I love all of Gregg Hurwitz’s books. Every single one is a well thought out page turner. His chatacters show depth and growth. The plot is never a straight line to the end. The twists and turns keeps the reader/ listener engaged up to the last page.

Excellent

Excellent as always. There is no thriller writer as good as Gregg Hurwitz and the combination of the best narrator Scott Brick makes this a 5 star combination. When the marine breaks out of prison, he starts a journey which is not clear from the beginning. The end is sad and happy at the same time.
Another excellent book by the master

A little sad, but a lot of justice, and a good end

This may be a Tim Rackley story, but it is more about the "bad guy" than about the investigators! Walker Jamison is a complicated character you sympathize with, all the while still knowing he must be caught.

A little bit Evan Smoak, a little bit Jack Reacher, but justice doesn't always have a happy ending. The opening prison scenes are so reminiscent of the newest Orphan X book (Into the Fire) that you might be confused thinking they are the same time and place! The protagonist is someone to root for, and he does end up doing the right thing, but he has not always been a good guy. There's even a small shout out to all that we expect our military to experience and suffer without much support. So there is a lot going on in the story, more motivations than at first are obvious, and much more happening with the medical experiments than you at first think. Hurwitz manages to keep it all together and come to a satisfying conclusion. The ending is subtle and requires some effort to know exactly what happened. Even the title is more complicated than it seems at first glance.The ongoing tension between Rackley and his father comes in after the Walker Jamison story and has nothing to do with it, but is still part of the theme of the book. Contemplating the various last shots adds depth and gravitas to your enjoyment of the story, and you'll find yourself thinking about it for some time after it's over.

Love Hurwitz, hated this book

I have listened to quite a few Hurwitz books but could not even finish this book it was so bad. Boring, disjointed and just never got off the ground. Hope the next one is back to his usual caliber.

Disappointed

Lots of murders, nobody to root for, couldn't really get into it, Greg Iles is usually much, much more exciting.

Satisfying tale of revenge and consequences

I recommend reading the 1st book in this series before this one. However both tales are very well written and are suspenseful and thoughtful. Good read!

Gregg does it again with a brilliant story. The author continues to advance his trade. Each story better and more vivid than the last
