Publisher's Summary

The Squandered propels Bruno into an emotionally charged high-speed chase as he and Marie leave their rescued kids in Costa Rica and risk returning to the US at the request of Bruno’s terminally ill father. Bruno’s estranged and incarcerated brother needs Bruno to help rescue his abducted young grandchildren, children Bruno hadn’t known existed.

Bruno cannot deny his father, and Marie will not let Bruno go alone. As fugitives, they return to the US to face not only imminent arrest, but also to confront ruthless kidnappers, drug dealers, and government agents who will stop at nothing to keep a secret from the past buried forever.

Glimpses of Bruno’s law-enforcement past shed light on the mayhem they encounter once they are discovered in LA. It seems that Bruno’s brother, Noble, has inadvertently kicked a hornet’s nest of criminals, both in and out of prison, and among various law-enforcement agencies looking to find a long-missing load of nine million dollars’ worth of cocaine. Noble’s grandchildren are caught in the crosshairs.

The chase, the brutality, and the emotional stress tests Bruno and Marie’s relationship and forces them to define family - what’s okay to forgive and what should never be forgotten. Armed with a new moral code, will they live long enough to put it into practice?

Suspenseful

This is book three of the Bruno Johnson Series. Bruno and Maria have returned to the Los Angeles Area to help his brother and nephew. Bruno is still a wanted man and has been living in Costa Rico so the entry back to the U.S. is dangerous for him. The book is well written and is fast paced. There is a lot of action and suspense. We learn a bit more about Bruno’s family and his childhood. The book was hard to put down. I am looking forward to reading book four in the series. Daniel F. Purcell does a good job narrating the story. Purcell is an actor and voiceover artist as well as an audiobook narrator.

Great series

Really enjoying the story line, but feel Audible has let this author down. There is no continuity of narrators, and they portray the main characters poorly. One narrator has such a raspy voice it's hard to listen to. Will continue the series on Kindle if available.
