Publisher's Summary

A friend in need is a friend indeed. And no one is a better friend than hitman-for-hire Lex Harper. 

When a mate from his past ends up in a Bolivian prison, Harper doesn’t think twice about going to his aid. Beatings, rapes and murders are an everyday occurrence in the prison. But the only way to break his friend out is for Harper to put his own life on the line, in a place where death comes quickly and only the strong survive. Getting into the prison is easy enough – but can Harper get out? And how many people will he have to kill to make it back?

Dammit!

After the brilliant first LH novel, I have been really disappointed by such a lame follow up. This story is not the vehicle for Lex's character and the large plot holes and weak basis on which the story hinge, are resonant of a contractual obligation by SL rather than any real ping of inspiration to drag Lex out of Thailand. At one point, having met two paper thin accomplices for 5 minutes, they burst from a coffee shop into firefight with essentially unknown assailants with an unknown agenda. As good as putting a .45 caliber round through the skin of an open car door into a Sicario's chest is, substance is better than style and this story is sadly lacking in both. If nothing else, I am now unlikely to ever venture to Bolivia! Lex is, to my mind, SL's best character but after the brilliance of Takedown (and Plausible Deniability) this was a letdown. Anyone reading this who's as hooked on Harper as I am will still want to listen to it, but do get it in a sale! Can't wait for the phone reverberation in Lex's hip pack with a message reading: You've got mail.

Thriiler or travel guide?????

Paul Thornley is excellent as always, the first three quarters of this book are an average listen but during the last quarter it reads like a very poor travel guide book. In my opinion the last quarter of this book is just fleshed out with words to make the story longer, (are you being paid by the word Stephen?). Could have been really good but lost it's way.
