Starts with Nathan at home. He's watching a movie when he gets a text message. The message includes his old CIA call sign. Now no one knows his old call sign except those in pretty high places.
The text talks about kidnapping and a description of the vehicle and its location. Nathan of course heads out to see what the hell is going on.
Nathan finds the vehicle. The vehicle has a driver and a young girl. The young girl continues to text him but the driver sees her and takes her phone away. Nathan then has to flash her handwritten notes.
Nathan finally gets enough info to realize he needs to get this girl away from the driver. Which he does by crashing his Mustang into the SUV. The driver makes a grab to keep the girl. He's fighting outside his class though as Nathan McBride is 6'5" and 240 pounds of trained fighter. A gunfight then ensues and Nathan is able to grab the girl and make a getaway. He has loads of questions for the girl. A girl who's name is Lauren.
Harv is on vacation in Istanbul but after hearing from Nathan he's on his way home but until then Nathan, a very capable Nathan, is pretty much on his own.
So begins one pretty damned good read.
This one has Nathan, Lauren, facts from his Dad's time in Korea, a missing woman,a sister Nathan didn't know he had, a man out to kill both Nathan and Lauren, Alexandrites, murdered woman, a plot to smuggle the jewels into the US,the FBI, friends, and one hair raising finale.
Just one great read and well worth those five stars.
In this go around, Nathan get's a text message from someone that he doesn't know. In that text, the sender uses Nathan's secret code name, and that sets off red alerts to him. It turns out that the person that sent the text is a young girl, and knows all about Nathan, and Nathan knows nothing about her. As the story unfolds, Nathan has to protect this girl form a gang of kidnappers, and murders. As the story unfolds, and Nathan pieces things together, he soon learns of something much darker and and deeper than what appears on the surface, and Nathan's life will never be the same again.
There's a lot of things that make this story work. First is that Nathan is growing as a character. He has to deal with a child and soon realized that at times, his usual way with people won't work with kids. I thought that it was a nice touch to see Nathan sort of change who he was and think of a child's needs and well beings first. I also liked the twists and turns in the book, it kept me glued to the page. The addition of Lauren was awesome, she's a fantastic character that I hope we get to see more of.
People has said that Nathan McBride is cut from the same cloth that Jack Reacher is, and I have to agree. I can't think of any higher complement than that.
This really was such a fun read. If you get it, I can promise you won't be sorry.
