Marcus Williams and Francis Ackerman Jr. both have a talent for hurting people. Marcus, a former New York City homicide detective, uses his abilities to protect others, while Ackerman uses his gifts to inflict pain and suffering. When both men become unwilling pawns in a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of our government, Marcus finds himself in a deadly game of cat and mouse trapped between a twisted psychopath and a vigilante with seemingly unlimited resources. Aided by a rogue FBI agent and the vigilante’s beautiful daughter–a woman with whom he’s quickly falling in love–Marcus must expose the deadly political conspiracy and confront his past while hunting down one of the most cunning and ruthless killers in the world.
This was a great book that had me on the edge of my seat. Many times I was in complete shock as to what was happening. It is not often that a book will be able to surprise me many times throughout. This one managed to.
It was extremely well written and I absolutely could not put it down. The story was so fast paced and full of action. The characters were well developed.
There are so many things I would love to say about this book. However, I had vowed to myself when I started reviewing that I would never give spoilers. And this is one of those books that has so many twists and turns that sharing something would almost always be a spoiler.
The book cover has a quote from Andrew Gross stating “A fast paced, all too real thriller with a villain right out of James Patterson and Criminal Minds.” I couldn’t agree more.
This is one of those books that when it ends you are sad because you don’t want to stop reading it. I will definitely be keeping a watch on this author.
You don’t want to miss this book!!
