Publisher's Summary

Troubled ex-con Zack Taylor is haunted by the accidental death of his brother years before. Zack's guilt and anger have pushed him into a shadowy, wandering life, with little purpose and few attachments. When he hears of the death of his close friend Ben Sterling, a supposed gunshot suicide, Zack finds he now has a purpose - to find out what happened. Then his purpose becomes an obsession. Zack goes to Maine, where Ben died, and is a fish out of water, with no connections, no information, and no credibility. People don't want to talk about Ben's death, so Zack gets ever more frustrated, making enemies, getting into fights, and breaking the law in his search for the truth. The only bright spot seems the potential for a relationship with a sympathetic nurse - if he can control his violent streak. To draw out the killers, Zack offers himself as bait. But without a gun, he must rely on his wits and his physical skills to survive a dangerous game of drugs and death. Though managing a measure of justice, Zack is changed in the process, and must learn to live in a very different world.

    "Action, Mystery, and More Action"

    Summary: Zack Taylor’s told his best friend just committed suicide, but he knows better … and he’s going to prove it.

    Additional Comments:

    - Warning – not a “clean” book. Contains half a dozen f-bombs and plenty of violence.

    - It’s a bit like a Jack Reacher book in that certain people get pounded and you still end up rooting for the good guy.

    - There’s a romance subplot that the book could have done without. It’s not that it was bad, but it seemed a tad forced.

    - The characters are likable - or unlikable - as they’re supposed to be.

    - There are a few light-hearted moments. The descriptions are decent.

    - I heard the narrated version. Although I can’t say the narrator’s voice is my favorite, he fits the character well and put on a solid performance.

    Conclusion: Mystery that provides an excellent excuse for the main character to bust people’s heads (and arms and whatnot).
