John Hutchinson thinks it's no coincidence that Brendan Page runs this modern Praetorian Guard, and that the billionaire military industrialist must have had something to do with the atrocities his son Declan committed in Canada. The Canadian and U.S. Justice departments disagree, but Hutch has been digging for dirt ever since.
When Hutch discovers the secret of Page's success, Page decides to teach him a lesson. But the operation goes terribly wrong, and Hutch's son is kidnapped. While a lone man stands little chance against the best black op soldiers ever issued M-16s, Hutch manages to survive longer than Page anticipated.As far as Hutch is concerned, high-tech helmets, machine guns, and hand grenades are nothing compared to a man determined to save his son. It's a lesson he sets out to teach Page-and one that he can only hope works as well in the real world as it does in his heart.
Awesome Book| Posted June 10, 2009
Liparulo has done it again with the follow up to Deadfall (book 1 about John Hutchinson). This book takes place a year after Deadfall with John trying to prove that Brendan Page had more to do with the fiasco that takes place in the first book. Page is training an elite force of military guards called Outis with all of the newest technology to make them the best. But when John gets a little too close Page makes things personal wby attacking John and the ones that he loves. Pages men eventually kidnap John's son LOgan.
I love the characters in the story and their interaction with each other. Liparulo does a great job of writing again and I have not been disappointed yet. I look forward to see what he has in store in the future.
