Every family has secrets. When it's one of the most powerful families in history, secrets can have catastrophic consequences for the entire world.

For hundreds of years they were the weapons of kings.
Now they work for themselves on the world's behalf.
But who is going to save them when a forgotten enemy returns?

No other organization has had a greater impact on history through the lives they've saved and the lives they've taken. They are an extraordinary family whose quiet interventions in the world's affairs have had important ramifications for centuries.

But every family has its drama...

Claire DuMont has been estranged from the family for the last five years, surviving on her own as an independent contractor. On Tuesday, she arrives in Dallas on an assignment for a detestable mob boss. During her one night in town, she unexpectedly falls in love with an ordinary man who is willing to do something very surprising to catch her attention.

That same day, her brother Julian pilots a dilapidated boat into Galveston harbor. As he attempts to carry out his own mission at a seedy waterfront bar that is being monitored by law enforcement and a South American drug cartel, he meets a beautiful waitress who is not what she seems.

Meanwhile, their cousin Tait is attempting to finally become a family agent by hunting down a well-protected criminal. When his first real mission nearly ends in disaster, it's up to the heads of the American family to decide his fate before Tait's father, the head of the European family, arrives and causes havoc.

The events of this day will begin an explosive chain reaction that will put in jeopardy the fate of fifteen-year-old Abbey, the DuMonts' greatest hope for the future, who is about to begin her own harrowing journey that will lead her to the startling truth about the family.

About: THE FAMILY DUMONT is the first part in the Family DuMont series. Authors Austin Wright and Adam Knox have created a complex family drama that follows the members on a worldwide adventure. The multi-generational family experiences action, romance, political intrigue, revenge and unthinkable danger on a global scale.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Family Dumont Review February 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well geez... where's the rest of it? Apart from the fact there is no hint of when or where the next book might or might not appear, this is an outstanding read. It's a bit confusing with switches back and forth among the characters and sub plots but the braiding of various strands is skillfully done. This is a wow book and the next, should it appear, will most likely be a five star. I only give those to books that will be read again and again, the true test of literature in my opinion. Enjoy... it's that good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Family Feud on steroids February 25, 2014
By Jeanine
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is based on the premise of a family with a secret -- for centuries they have worked as assassins who kill to make the world a better place. The pitfalls in that idea are huge but not explored in this book. Instead we get family alphas beating their chests and the younger set struggling with various insecurities.

Parts of this book were enjoyable as the characters pulled off their exploits. Parts were ethically challenging to say the least although one could hope those questions would be addressed in more depth in a sequel.

And there's at least one very unintentionally funny line when it's stated that a brother and sister are twins, but not identical.

All in all, somewhat diverting but not great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not put it down! February 26, 2014
By Lauren
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is rare that I pick up a book and put off sleep as I continue reading into the night, because I can't wait to read what is going to happen next. I fell in love with each of the characters and loved how it folded several plots and character stories into one. This book takes you on an adventure with the Dumont family and you will love every minute of it. I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out so I can have a few more sleepless nights!

This book did not make you wait to get completely submerged in the story. It is like you have a birds-eye view of the entire thing as the action twist and turns. One of the few books that I did not want to end. I look forward to reading the next book in what I see as a great series.

This was a fun book with great action. I really enjoyed the Claire character. It's great to see a strong female lead and she really drives the action and story. I can't wait for the second book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. Was recommended to me by a friend ... August 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First amazon review that will be a serious review. Great book. Was recommended to me by a friend and I came in thinking the idea had been overdone with all the media that is focused on story lines like this, (assassins creed, wanted, etc) but was pleasantly surprised when I got past the first few chapters and fell in love with the book. Characters are very well put together and charismatic. You instantly get attached to one. (My preference leans toward Julian.) All in all a great read. One of the better books I have read this year. 5/5 would recommend to a friend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complex yet Captivating October 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The large cast of characters and simultaneous plot lines is, at times, difficult to follow. Yet, both undoubtedly add to appeal of the book as the story is multifaceted and keeps the reader entertained. There is a feeling that the authors are setting a broad stage to prepare the reader for something bigger than expected. I believe we've hardly scratched the surface of what is sure to be a dense and fascinating story. I found myself engaged within the first chapter, finished within the day and already looking forward to the next book.
