Publisher's Summary

Fans of high-octane action and unforgettable heroes like Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne, and David Baldacci’s Amos Decker will love First Shot.

“When girls go missing here, no one says a word”...

Twenty-four year old Lila has disappeared without trace. It’s the kind of case that ex-military loner Grant Fletcher would normally be happy to take on - he will always seek justice if someone has the money to pay him. But this one he’s doing for free. This one’s personal.

Because Fletcher owes his life to Lila’s father. And Fletcher knows that returning Lila safe and sound is the only thing that matters to his wheelchair-bound friend.

She last called her father from a small town called Daversville, in rural Georgia. A place - Fletcher discovers as he checks into the only motel - where folks are proud to keep themselves to themselves, and almost all the business comes from the giant sawmill that looms large over the town.

Before he’s even started looking for Lila, Fletcher finds trouble. But he also discovers that his friend’s daughter wasn’t the first girl to go missing there. Not the first by far.

Then the last person to have seen Lila before she disappeared is murdered. With Fletcher on the scene when her body is found, he becomes the local deputy’s only suspect, leaving him no choice but to go on the run. Because he knows someone’s abducting girls in this town. And he also knows he’s the only one who can find them...

Interesting story

Interesting story , but the way the story explains every little step that better writers know is implied throughout the story , makes for a very slow and boring listen .
Also you would not find reacher or Tom Keeler spuds y footing around like fletcher does , he would take the shot or make the kill , not explain his reasoning for not doing it in excruciating detail .
Way to slow and lack of action for me to buy another

look forward to more stories.

Quite an exciting read. It is good to have positive finish and left hanging in the breeze. Sounds like an exciting time ahead for John.

Interesting but not for me

I found the narrators voice and tone not to my liking.
Also the story was dragged out with information that was not needed.

Characters are interesting

Characters are interesting, premise is similar to Reacher and a few others around, but I like that. It is easy to listen to and follow while doing something else.

A few repetitive phrases.
