DJ Slaughter is no hero. But make no mistake, he's tired of being pushed around. Life ambushed him years ago and left him bitter and broken. Now, when the same type of evil threatens him once more, it finds him more prepared. This time, he is just as lethal as the enemy that pursues him.

If you're wondering if this book is worth your time then maybe this will answer your question. I bought the second book in the series as soon as I finished this one.

DJ is a bad, bad man and I mean that as a compliment.

DJ is trying to recover from a heart-wrenching tragedy. He's moved to an isolated valley just trying to live his life. When a routine transaction turns into a bloodbath his quiet life is shattered for good.

The reference to Jack Reacher and Mitch Rapp in the book description is actually inaccurate. DJ is really a mix of the two. You have Reacher's singular force of nature mixed with Rapp's deadly intent and willingness to visit extreme violence on enemies.

The book was recommended to me so I really had no idea what I was getting into. I loved it. I'm always looking for books in this genre that can get my heart racing while making it impossible to put down.

The only negative thing to say about the book is that it has a cliffhanger ending. If it wasn't for the fact that the second book is already available I would have been much harder on the rating. It had all the elements any action/thriller fans look for and it's a series with another book out to fill your binging needs.
