Black Ops veteran Jonathan Grave is back and pursuing two missing American teens kidnapped and hidden in Mexico’s dark underworld…where he finds himself caught in the center of a vendetta he never expected.
A BookBub Top Thriller of Summer
El Paso, Texas, is a battleground. It’s an open market for Mexican drug cartels to sell their wares. It’s also a destination for teens looking for fun. Venice Alexander’s fourteen-year-old son Roman was there on a school trip. Now, he and a fellow student have vanished without a trace.
Assuming the kidnapping is retaliation for his past incursions against Mexico’s crime syndicates, Jonathan Grave leads his covert operatives to rescue their teammate’s son. But the trail Jonathan follows leads him down unexpected paths where he ends up in the crossfire of a deadly vendetta…
“[Gilstrap’s] greatest strength is the ability to blend breathtaking action with deep emotion regarding the characters.”
“Gilstrap pushes every thriller button.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
"A great hero, a really exciting series."
Same old story, except the focus is on two bratty kids. Who cares? Plus, there is less focus on the two main characters, who the story should really be about, and the story just seems to get lost and wander. Nothing new here.
