It started as a favor . . .
And led to a bunch of dead bodies.
Now, John Tyler is on the run.
The former soldier offered to pick up his daughter Lexi's friend Stacy at the airport in bad weather. Simple enough.
When they arrived at the young woman's house, however, four murdered corpses littered the floor. And the killers were circling back . . .
Even once they make an escape, their future is hardly certain. Cut off from his friends and support, Tyler must keep Stacy safe from a determined and unknown adversary with a seemingly endless supply of assassins.
When Stacy ends up in the enemy's clutches, Tyler stages a desperate gambit to get her back alive. Why are she and her family targets? Finding out might cost John Tyler his life.
Four on the Floor is the kinetic fourth entry in the John Tyler thriller series.
In a way that usually feels vicarious, like a nosy gossip listening at the door, I enjoy the action, and the struggles depicted between selfish folks who hire shady guys to do their dirty work; and the folks who act out of a sense of right, like Tyler.
It is an interesting and intriguing read, reading the inner conflicts of some of the folks doing that well armed heavy lifting, and Tyler and some of his friends or acquaintances who seem to get involved to try to do the right things, and often not for gain or profit; and often at cost to themselves or their situations or well being .
As someone with many family members who are former military, I also find it insightful to read about characters facing the struggles to make ends meet, challenges what to do with their skills in a civilian setting, and appreciate the attitude Tyler displays towards getting therapy, that encourages his daughter and others who face trauma to seek support.
If you like action packed adventures, and you are a fan of drama and political intrigue, this might be your next great, keeps you reading to the end book.
FOUR ON THE FLOOR
This is the first Tom Fowler book I have read but probably not the last. I very much liked the main character,John Tyler. He is ex-military special ops guy who knows how to fight and shoot. He doesn’t go looking for trouble but won’t run away from it if there is a wrong that needs to be made right.
Plenty of action, drama and suspense with some humor and good character development. Even though this is the first book of his that I have read by the end of it I felt like I knew the characters.
Lots of action with an interesting plot that kept me going back in order to find out what would happen next.
