This review is from: My Life, For Her (Paperback)
From the Author
My Life For Her is the sequel to my first book Bullets and Bandages. While writing this novel, I wanted to include something that is relevant in today's world. I also wanted to bring action and adventure into play. I think I have accomplished both.
What would I do? How far would I go to save the one I love? I found myself thinking about that often while I pieced together this story.

Vietnam veteran turned cop, Rob Marino, has no idea what is headed his way. He had no way of knowing that the man he killed in a high speed chase was the brother of a top South American Drug Lord. He may not have been the only one in the chase but it was his gun that made the kill and to the brother of the dead man that is all that mattered.
Father and son were at a little league game, his wife was supposed to come when she got off work. She never showed. Somehow she just disappeared. An FBI agent who had taken a personal interest in the activities of this cartel gives Rob the information he needs to find her.
This is where the plot gets interesting indeed, Rob gets a buddy that served with him in `Nam and together they set out to rescue his wife. This is a great read. The action is swift and creative. A must read for all the action fans. Like me you will casting the book with your favorite action stars, hoping for a movie version.
Though the overall writing can be crude, the story is everything, unfolding like an action film, with exciting firefights and explosions aplenty. Saniscalchi writes with assurance about guerilla-style tactics as well as the deep and enduring bonds between veterans.
Rob Marrino is happy to be back home from Vietnam. Although it doesn't actually say, there are references to symptoms that he had and sometimes still is suffering from PTSD. So enjoying family, coaching baseball with his son on the team is just fine. He had become a cop in Pikesville, but there was not much happening in the area, and that was good too!
Until one day he found himself in the midst of a high-speed pursuit. A black sports sedan zoomed by with state police closely behind. Instantly calling it in, Rob joined the pursuit. A major bust for drugs was the result, but one brother of a top South American kingpin of a major drug cartel in Columbia was killed. Another brother was jailed.
And Rob Marrino had made the kill...
And he would be the one to pay...
Rob and Robby were due at the game. Beth Ann had ensured her son that she would get off work and come straight to the ballpark. But she never showed up. Like the wind, she was gone and there was little trace of what had happened!
The FBI had become involved because of the drugs case and fortunately, one of the agents personally took an interest in Beth Ann's disappearance, especially when they discovered that Beth Ann had been flown out of the country and had been seen being imprisoned at the cartel's "hidden" site.Read more ›
The book is all that you could ask for in any adventure tale; it is exciting, suspenseful, and above all--moving. This is a story that comes at you like a bullet with your name on it! A book you will not soon forget!
If you enjoy a thrilling story with a heartwarming ending then you will love My Life for Her.
