The connection between the disappearance of the two, and the terrorist attacks, is not apparent immediately. Jonathan Grave, a former soldier who now specializes in kidnap recovery, is contacted by a former military colleague and asked to help locate them. When he discovers the connection with the terrorist attacks, there isn't time to involve normal police or FBI (nor would they necessarily accept Grave's findings since they generally rely upon methods that wouldn't stand up in court, irrespective of their accuracy or correctness). Grave and his small team take on the case (and it is a very small team indeed, consisting of pretty much himself plus two others, with hacker back-up and some unofficial government help that would be denied if it came to light).
A bit improbable but great suspense and action, as Grave and his team confront impossible odds, leading not only to a frantic recovery of the hostages, but also an even more dangerous plot that they only realize at the very end, barely in time to step in.
My first experience with something written by John Gilstrap, very enjoyable. I'll be checking out his other Jonathan Grave novels.
Digger and Dom are headed to a football game when gunfire breaks out ahead of them.
Dig rolls out and sees someone standing on a bridge. This someone is shooting at all the cars headed that way.
Digger tells Dom to stay put, unholsers his weapon and heads out to put a stop to murder.
Digger does shoot the perp but body armor stops a kill shot. Jon is getting ready to take the head shot when he's accosted by an LEO. Jon can't take the shot without the LEO firing on him. He has no choice. He puts his weapon down and is cuffed and headed to jail. Apparantly the LEO, a SS officer thinks Jon is the shooter.
The shooter meanwhile has made HER escape. She flags down a mini van with Christine and her son Ryan aboard. Ryan thinks something is way wrong but can't get his mother to listen. Mom unlocks the door and lets the woman in. She immediately pulls her pistol and kidnaps both Christine and Ryan. Only problem is that Christine is married to a Spec Ops guy who's deployed but has plenty of friends at Bragg. Spec Ops guys who know Digger.
So begins one great read.
Digger, Boxer and Gail are headed into one hell of a mess.
We have a group of homegrown terrorists who are killing indescriminately all over the country and trying to blame it on jihadists. To start a war.
A sherrif who's anything but an LEO and Gail who still has a problem with killing. She thinks everything can be handled as a law enforcement exercise. Not so. Digger and Boxers know its you kill them before they can kill you.
Hope Gail can get her head out of her ass and jump on board with Digger and Boxers. If not I doubt she will be along for much longer.
Good read and well worth those 5 Stars
Unfortunately, or maybe it's inevitable in a book 3, there was less of that this time out -- more plot, and lots and lots of time spent with the bad guys and guest characters -- and less spent with our team. That's how it felt to me, anyway. So while the story was well-crafted and enjoyable, I felt like the reason I really enjoy these books -- Jonathan and his team -- wasn't quite so much in the forefront, and I missed that. The main character-based plot, revolving around Jonathan and Gail, was kind of left hanging, and I hope it will be picked up again in the next book. (And I do really appreciate that Gail's issues with the work the team does were framed in terms of her background, not her gender.)
Don't get me wrong -- I still enjoy this series -- this just wasn't my favorite entry in it.
