This was a fun read. The main character appears to be an ordinary Joe, but we soon learn that he is no one to be messed with. There are twists and turns as the main character demonstrates his toughness and ability to out think the bad guys in solving the "who-done-it" and why. I plan to read the next book centering around the same character.
