Publisher's Summary

"Rocket-paced suspense." (Jeffery Deaver)

"Gilstrap will leave you breathless." (Harlan Coben)

"A great hero, a really exciting series." (Joseph Finder)

Freelance operative Jonathan Grave faces his fiercest challenge yet in best-selling author John Gilstrap's explosive new thriller....

The mission: Drop into the Mexican jungle, infiltrate a drug cartel's compound, and extract a kidnapped DEA agent. But when Jonathan Grave and his partner, Boxers, retrieve the hostage and return to the exfil point, all hell breaks loose. Ambushed, abandoned, and attacked on all sides, their only hope of survival lies inside a remote orphanage where innocent children have been targeted for death. Even if Grave can lead his precious cargo to safety across a hundred miles of treacherous jungle filled with enemies, he can't shake the feeling that something bigger is at play. A vast conspiracy of international power players who take no prisoners - and leave no survivors....

    "Very enjoyable book, awful performance"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Final Target to be better than the print version?

    The print version of this book was thoroughly enjoyable as usual for Gilstrap's Johnathan Grave novels. However, the performer of the audio book was so bad that I stopped listening halfway through the first chapter and considered the credit I paid for it wasted. Later, because I could hardly bear to put the book down to drive, I tried listening again and still could not bring myself to listen to the awful performance.


    What other book might you compare Final Target to and why?

    This book is right on par and in theme with the other Johnathan Grave books. It is not as deep or nuanced as a Vince Flynn or Tom Clancy, but is more fast-paced for it. At the same time, it is certainly a "smarter" book than Brad Thor's Scott Harvath books. A comparable series would be Ben Coes' Dewey Andreas books, though the characters in Gilstrap's novels are much lighter and more likable. Coes' books are kind of like the dour DC comics movies and Gilstrap's are more like the Marvel cinematic universe.


    What didn’t you like about Basil Sands’s performance?

    His voice does not lend itself to differentiation and his gruff personalization of the characters is out of sync with the serious but playful nature portrayed in the writing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This was a book I wanted to READ in one sitting, but could not stand to listen for more than 10 minutes before I turned it off in disgust and waited for an opportunity to open the print version.


    Any additional comments?

    I sincerely hope Mr. Gilstrap or his editors find a more worthy reader for his future novels. They are highly enjoyable and it is a shame to have to stop experiencing the story whenever I get in the car, but all the enjoyment is ruined by a bad performance. I highly encourage customers to read the books.

    Love the Jonathan Grave series. Can't wait for the next one. Keep them coming. Digger and Boxer are my heroes.

    "a solid entry"

    This book isn't going to redeem the western world or improve life for anyone, but it was a solid 13 hours of narrative entertainment, with a plot straightforward enough to follow yet convoluted enough to be interesting, with apparent hopeless hurdles overcome with the right amount of derring-do by a cast large enough to engage the senses.

    "Fantastic! My first Gilstrap listen."

    Wasn't expecting such a great book. Great plot, character development and narration. If you like Mitch Rapp, Dewey Andreas, and the like, you will definitely like this book.

    Now excuse me while I click to the next screen and order another book in this series.

    "Favorite To Date!"

    I always enjoy the adventurers of Scorpion and Big Guy, but this book is my favorite in the series. In past books, involving children, they are whiney and annoying. The children in this book are tough and have immense personal character, especially Tomas. There was also a richer development of Scorpion and Big Guy's emotional character. It was very well done without either losing any of their badass attitude. Well worth a credit!
