Publisher's Summary

Scarred by war, former Navy Seabee Tom Sexton vows to leave his violent past behind, only to be drawn back into that life when a deadly conspiracy forces him to face an agonizing choice no man should ever have to make.

Five years after his life was saved in Afghanistan by Marine Force Recon Leader Charlie Cahill, Tom lives a bleak, nomadic existence, haunted by the debt he can never repay. Salvation appears in Stella - a woman as damaged, and resourceful, as he. But when a coded distress call from his former CO leads him to a shadowy NSA operative, Tom is recruited for a "black op" to bring back the now-rogue man who saved his life.

As he searches for Cahill, Tom quickly uncovers a much larger web of treason and betrayal that calls his entire world into question - and forces him into the ultimate no-win scenario.

    "Unexpected Pleasure!"

    I consume many books monthly; both written and on audio. As a result I often find myself with nothing new to read from my favorite authors; Lee Child, Brad Thor, Stuart Wood, Ben Coe, just to name a few. That leaves me in a position of relying on the reviews of similar minded readers or calculated recommendation from Amazon based on my past purchases. This book popped up on this list. It had few reviews, but the summary sounded interesting, so I thought why not. Great decision. The narrator is perfect. The author has written a tightly woven plot with interesting complex characters. I also didn't figure out the ending, which was a pleasure. I how this turns into a series and I look forward to the next installment as I'm not ready to let these characters go. If you are undecided about this book, go fir it. I don't think you will be disappointed.

    "Excellent choice for this venue"

    Perfect for my treadmill time. Very violent but very patriotic. Mostly plausible characters. Will look for another book by the author.

    "Great character development"

    Enjoyed the espionage and crime/terrorist drama with multiple threads to lead my conclusions switching antagonists until the very end. Well done in the style of Baldacci.

    "Special forces bring lots of special training for a large number of trials Tom had been through this but had had enough!"

    There is a story to this but the detail outweighs the presentation. There is presented in. my opinion, too much detail and violence.

    "Awesome!"

    This was my first book by Daniel Judson, and I'll be looking into more from this author. The plot was wonderful and I was blown away with all the twists, turns, and logic behind the story. I was intrigued by the depth of the characters, too. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.

    "Confusing plot, uninspired narration"

    In a sense this is a classic "whodunit" as the plot revolves around who is actually the rogue agent in this book. The two main protagonists are both ex-military, one a recon marine and the other a CB (a US Navy member of a Construction Battalion), who once served together and are still emotionally tied together because one of them took the major part of a hand grenade blast to save the other. OK. Perhaps I can buy that. The problem is that it gets very confusing after that is accepted.

    Why is the marine who took the blast willing to trust the guy he saved when the going gets rough? Should it not be the other way around? And exactly who is the rogue agent who is causing all of the trouble? And exactly how credible is the entire scenario that they are trying to stop? And why is one group first trying to kill one of them and then, the next moment, trying to save him?

    I am quite prepared to suspend reality while reading a book like this, but there has to be some order and sense to the plot to make me be able to continue suspending belief, and that just seems to be missing for me in this book. Fortunately it is a relatively short book and I did manage to hang on to the end. There is a second book in the series, but I believe I will pass on it.

    "Good series start"

    It was confusing for a while since I missed the part where there were 3 bada$$ guys and not just 2. Tom Sexton is the title guy who doesn't want anything more to do with this life of violence, but he answers the call for help from his former CO who is being framed as a traitor. But it is Cahill whom you think is the main character. His is the first chapter in the story, and his is the woman killed, and his is the start of the adventure. But he is really secondary.

    Once you get past that confusion, there is a lot of good action. And there are the flashback scenes showing how both Tom and Cahill got their scars. These scenes tell of Marine brotherhood and are quite feeling.

    There's treachery and chicanery, and some turnabouts, all making for a good story. And, man, Stella surprisingly has some fine moves too. This is another good series to follow.

    "love this narrator's voice"

    First time reading this author and halfway thru I am excited to find a new series that doesn't over describe or repeat unnecessary details about the characters. No fluff or fillers used to cushion a weak storyline or poorly developed main character. I've grown bored with mediocre storytelling and high school ish dialogue so I'm thrilled so far
