There are no repercussions to shooting an unarmed suspect in the back. No investigation, no paid suspension, no public outcry. Jack has ignored a primary rule on when to shoot (in this case, there was no imminent jeopardy), and should be in hot water. Unfortunately, this is one of many errors in the book as far as the police and the criminal justice system are concerned. These types of glaring mistakes in a series where the main character is a detective are inexcusable.
The conclusion is one long explanation by one of the characters, a very boring ending rather than any number of options Ms. Rose could have conjured. The plot seemed contrived, at times stretching the boundaries of incredulity well past the breaking point (having Jack's son's name, when reduced to numbers corresponding to the alphabet, revealing a phone number that is used to track the kidnappers, for instance). The writing is okay, though some of the conversations seem a little rough and not natural. I may have considered another star, but sandwich these with the procedural errors and you have an extremely unsatisfactory novel.
While I applaud Ms. Rose's literary success and recognize the many hours of labor she has dedicated to her books, this lack of attention to details ruined my first experience reading a Jack Ryder novel.
If you choose to suspend disbelief and ignore the constant clashes with reality, you may enjoy this book. If you desire to read something that accurately reflects everyday life, you will want to pass on this offering.
Young boys are being kidnapped, held, tortured and killed. Jack's man suspect has a great alibi; he was in prison.
I somewhat enjoyed the book. I like Willow's writing style; it normally has a nice flow and is easy to read. This book had many editing issues. There were typos, spelling errors, and inconsistancies in the story.
For example, in Chapter 46 when Hector was trying to find his family in Cuba. First Hector and Raul are asking their way through a crowd for hours searching for them, then Hector is going back to the boat that Raul is guarding. When did they separate.
There are times like when Jack realizes that Austin's misspelling of his name ( using an e instead of an i) is a code, and then figures it's a phone number. Too farfetched and unbelievable.
I'm still going to read book 4 Black Jack. But I'm not a fan of the Jack Ryder series.

Another page turner in this series and like the first two I found it hard to put down. Looking forward to reading the fourth one. If you're looking for a real exciting read I would thoroughly recommend this series. I'm certainly going to read more of Willow's other books too.
Sorry but not the best by a good storyteller who is now putting money first not reader.
Sad but true.
I realise that books are given free for a reason, that sane people would never pay for them! !
There should be an option for leaving NO stars.
