Jed Patrick is convinced he's doing all it takes to keep his family safe--new names, new location, new identity. But just when he thinks he finally has his life back, trained men claiming to be CIA agents break in and threaten his wife and daughter, proving once and for all his family will never truly be safe until he eliminates the agency dead set on hunting him down.Not knowing if Karen and Lilly are better off by his side or in hiding, Jed is determined to protect them while finding a way to use the classified information that he possesses to dismantle the Centralia Project. But he soon learns that eliminating Centralia may require compromising his own values. As danger escalates, Jed isn't sure whether there's anyone or anything he can trust--including his own senses.

     This was one mind-bender- literally. Sort of like a Christian Jason Bourne (though not as Bourne-ish as the first book), with high stakes and lots of action. Though I tend to gravitate more towards movies within the action genre than books, I still enjoyed this one.

     The writing is a little different than what I'm used to--a bit more modern, a bit more sparse. That being said, I wouldn't qualify this as "minimalist" writing either; the author does have some pretty good descriptions. However, it's still very fast-paced. I'm not sure if there is going to be a third book in this series (this one felt like it wrapped up pretty nicely, although there is room for a sequel) but I did really like the new characters who were introduced in this book. Overall, a recommended read for those who enjoy suspense and thrillers.

Rating: 8

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
