Publisher's Summary

No limits. No rules. No mercy. Can one man take down an entire drug cartel?

Former Army Ranger Pierce Hunt is second-guessing his decision to join a CIA hunter-killer team that will take him far away from his daughter. But when a new performance-enhancing drug kills four football players - including his daughter’s boyfriend - settling down becomes the last thing on Hunt’s mind.

When Anna Garcia, Hunt’s lover and head of the largest drug cartel in Miami, becomes the prime suspect in the investigation, the stakes become even more personal. Not convinced that Anna is capable of such extremes, Hunt looks far and wide for evidence to exonerate her and stop a vicious enemy who plans to flood the US market with an addictive new drug. Outgunned, outmanned, and out of time, Hunt is the country’s last hope to stop a deadly new drug from making countless new victims.

Action packed!

This is the second book in the Pierce Hunt series. Can be listened to as a stand alone but I would suggest listening to Hunt them Down first. This is a really good series and if you like procedurals than they’re worth listening to in order.
Very shortly after Hunt leaves on a joint CIA/DEA mission his girlfriend is targeted by people on her own organization. Becoming the default head of her family’s drug cartel, Anna wants to go ligit, members of her organization are opposed. Meanwhile, athletes are dying from amphetamines being sold by them. She’s getting the blame.
The mission Pierce is on is tied to this but neither is aware what the other is involved in.
Bon Shaw aka R C Bray does an outstanding job as always.

2nd Fantastic Book Another Wow!

Trained To Hunt picks up where Hunt Them Down leaves off. The Black Tosca cartel is in shambles and the leaders dead. But some members survived and Pierce Hunt isn’t going to allow that to stand. Pierce gets a tip on where they are, but someone beats him to it and now he has more trouble. Meanwhile, Anna is following through on her promise to dismantle all of the illegal holdings run by her father and brother. Competitors smell blood in the water and Anna has problems of her own. All sorts of threads to pull on here. Her attempts to go straight are being sabotaged. Not everyone in her organization wants to go legit and someone appears to be pulling their strings. Some dirty amphetamine pills are killing student athletes and it appears Anna’s crime family is behind it without her knowledge. Pierce and his team have been sent to Afghanistan to find the drug lab. The lab might be there, but the party is in Venezuela. Hunt can’t be in 3 places at once, it only seems like it. A quick stop in Miami to kill those that are about to kill Anna and then he and Carter are off to Venezuela to get the evidence they need to put a stop to this drug being smuggled in to the States. All the action in this book leaves you wanting more and the ending makes it clear that we will get it. Highly recommend this one!

Bon Shaw was amazing with the delivery of the story.

Fantastic book!!!!

This sequel with Pierce Hunt flowed seamlessly from the first book and ended perfectly leading to the next installment. It was a bit brutal a few times and I hope that kind of violence is truly fiction and never happens in the real world. With that being said I liked the plot and the characters. I listened to this book in one day- just couldn’t get put it down!

Pierce Hunt Puts It All On The Line!

This was another great Pierce Hunt thriller. The story is fast paced and keeps the reader in suspense. Bon Shaw brings everything to life with his great narration. Looking forward to the next one.

Tries too hard

I don’t know. Pierce Hunt is cool and all, but the stories seem very unoriginal. Obviously, the author has visions of grandeur a la Daniel Silva and Brad Thor, but I don’t think his story telling is there yet. His scenes aren’t vivid enough and Pierce is heroic, but not in an off the chain-grab my attention-can’t stop listening-way. Book 1 was better, but book 2 (this one) went the wrong direction. Give it a shot though. You may disagree with me....

Pierce gets man

Dead or alive Pierce acquires his target. I’m sure there are errors but I would not know as I’ve never been in the service but from what I’ve read, everything was precise and felt right. Even if just a bit Rambo-ish. Dump the CIA.

Simon Says RC be Bon! Excellent second book

Enjoyed. Ending just a little disappointing but overall solid five maybe 4.9 and if you liked the first, you’ll like this one. Kept me engaged throughout. Why RC has to have an alias, who knows.

Excellent!

I really loved it! I am actually tired of all the other books chasing terrorists, and this is such a pleasant change, but still with the drama and plots. The insight into the drug world is scary, as I don't really know what a huge problem it is. Pierce Hunt has developed nicely and I am looking forward to the next one!
The narrator was great!
