Sarah’s investigation appears to be going well until the fight turns personal. She must now struggle to save her friends, family, and even herself. Spanning the globe with a keen knowledge of special forces tactics and some genuinely shocking twists, this book warns of a bloody, drug-addled future we may soon face.
Oh my gosh there is so much action in this book! This book was so fast paced, that I could not set it down. The story starts out somewhat slow, but not in a bad way. The author gives us a good feel for Sarah and who she is as a person, and how her relationships are with her friends, family and teammates. The author gives lots of military jargon but it is explained in the book as well as there is a handy dictionary in the back of the book. The character development in this book was wonderful! Even the bad guys development was well written. Every background character was flawless and needed as each one held their own and contributed to the story. I really felt that as a person Sarah grew. She was already strong but on an emotional sense she grew, especially where Michael was concerned. This was was intense, suspenseful, exciting and quite an adventure of a read. I definitely recommend this book and suggest to other readers not to let the use of the acronyms overwhelm them as once you get used to them you get past it and the dictionary at the end helps a ton. I felt the acronyms were needed for the story and contributed highly to it. 5 stars from me.
