While it is October 1999 and years since he testified, the mob never forgets. The mob in this case is the Vicario crime family. Their capo, Boots Minelli, is in town. The only reason Bryce Scott has a chance to do anything is Boots Minelli has had a very public heart attack and is incapacitated. What he told the others is secondary to the very real major question Bryce faces---what does he do now to stay alive?
As a hurricane gains strength and leads towards New Orleans, Bryce Scott takes the bus trip and makes plans to deal with ending the chase once for all. It has been a long time since he faced the Germans in World War II, but he isn’t going down without a fight. How to do it without involving innocent passengers is just one of a growing list of problems he faces as the miles pass.
This is an interesting mystery thriller style read that contains a few surprises. While it has less humor in it than the Greg McKenzie Mysteries do, there are the occasional small bits of humor. All and all, Hellbound by Chester Campbell is a good read that keeps the reader turning the pages to see how Bryce will deal with the killers after him as well as some of his fellow bus passengers. Some of them just might be as bad as the killers.

While there's a big mafia connection here, the book reads more like a cozy. It's clean, cute, fast-paced, and very suspenseful. The only thing that kept this from five full stars for me was that a few of the POV transitions were a bit clumsy. There were a few times where we changed POV character very suddenly. But that's really my only nitpick.
And I loved the way senior citizens were portrayed in this book. If, like me, you haven't entered those golden years yet, don't let that stop you from reading this book. In fact, when I ended the book, I found myself thinking that these folks represent the kind of person I want to be when I'm older!
This book is simply a lot of fun. Highly recommended!
When I read the summary for Hellbound, I had to laugh, imagining Tony Soprano barreling down the highway chasing a group of seniors on a bus tour. However, the idea sounded so creative that I knew I had to check it out. I was surprised that it caught my attention right from the start with just the perfect amount of suspense sustained throughout the novel. It is set in 1999, a short while before cell phones became ubiquitous.
It is well written and edited, making it a pleasure to read, and the characters all ring true. The characterizations are good and the dialogue is spot on, giving the reader the feeling of going along on the trip. Life threatening Mafia figures and an impending hurricane combine to provide a good armchair trip for the suspense genre reader.
