Publisher's Summary

A contract killer. A governor's son. And a gunshot heard around the world.

This fast-paced, action-packed thriller stars a hero who's tough like Reacher and smart like Bosch.

Back on the job after a year's suspension, former operative turned Federal Agent Garrison Chase is looking to redeem himself in the Bureau's eyes. Which should be easy, given his assignment is a routine protection detail for Stanley Tuchek, the California governor's son.

But on the first morning of protection all hell breaks loose when Chase's house is nearly blown up and Stanley is shot a few hours later. Furious, the governor fires Chase and tells him to stay far away from Stanley.

But Chase doubles down instead, using Stanley as bait to lure the assassin. And it works. When Chase comes face-to-face with the hitman, however, he's stunned to learn the man's identity. Even more shocking is who sent him.

Suddenly Chase is plagued by questions. He doesn't know if his past is back to haunt him or if Stanley isn't as innocent as he seems.

It's a race against time - and against powerful enemies he didn't know he had - to find the answers. Because if he doesn't find them quickly, Garrison Chase, and everyone he loves most in the world, are as good as dead.

Good start to a series

Chase isn't a Reacher or Bosch, but he's interesting enough for a few novels, at least. As is too often the case in this genre, the author gets a little too carried away with some of the action, making it seem contrived and unrealistic. But the story is suspenseful, and fortunately, does not end in a cliffhanger. Steve Rausch delivers an excellent performance, giving distinctive voices to the characters.

Great!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I really enjoyed this book. it was a good change of pace from my usual fantasy/thriller/horror genres. The story was really good. The characters were well fleshed out and finally, we have a main character who is "absolutely perfect/sexy/hot/the epitome of masculinity" and who has some (glaring) flaws. This was a good mystery and leaves you questioning throughout most of the story. The narrator was good but he was a bit slow in some parts. I ended up speeding up to 1.5x which made things a normal speed. Some of his voices were a bit off (too deep or too light) but overall, he is a good narrator and I enjoyed the way he portrayed the characters

Explosive Action/Suspense Thriller

Craig Hooper excels at introducing believable characters and developing them as the story progresses. It was easy to become invested in his characters as he weaved them through an intense, exciting, fast-paced, complex plot with intrigue, deception and manipulation. This story held my attention and kept me guessing with its non-stop action and surprising twists and turns. I thoroughly enjoyed this well-written, riveting action/suspense thriller. This is the first time I have had the pleasure of listening to the rich voice of Steve Rausch; he provided each character with their own distinctive voice and his performance was terrific. I was provided a free review copy of this audio book and am voluntarily leaving this review.
